It is my MIL's 80th birthday and we went big with her gift - a round trip to Australia to visit her relatives. She will be so excited!! So I had to go all out on her card too.
I didn't want her to know the gift until she opened the card, so the front could be for any birthday (love the sentiment). But open it up and the inside is a spiral pop up with a plane flying from the U.S. to Down Under, complete with clouds in the sky.
I did the sentiment and the globes in Powerpoint and sized them to fit my circle dies. The plane is a digital image, which I fussy cut and covered in Crystal Effects. I made the background paper with clear embossing on Kraft CS. I cut the spiral in acetate and drew the red dashes with a Sharpie. This card took forever - as usual, I kept getting more ideas as I went on. TFL.
