Palm Tree Birthday Pop-Up Card

Good morning friends

I love being able to make personalized cards for friends and family. This one was made for a friend who loves Maui. I used the new Tropical Scene for the card front, adding a palm tree from the Palm Tree Pop-Up and a cute flag from the Castle Pop-Up.

The ocean waves were cut from an empty tissue box - the pattern was too pretty for me to toss it into recycling.

Here is the top view of the card, opened. The new Palm Tree Pop-Up is so cool!

Even though it is 3-D, it folds completely flat for mailing.

I penned "Wishing you a MAUI special day". We had the chance to vacation in Maui with these friends a couple of years ago, and she bought a tee shirt that says "Maui is my Happy Place". So I knew she would appreciate this play on words.

I added a little die cut banner in the crabs claws, with a Prickley Pear Happy Birthday stamp.
