Upsy Daisy Pop Up Card for my Adorable Grandson

Today I am sharing the second card I showed in my new YouTube video featuring Karen Burniston's Upsy Daisy dieMy two year old grandson loves trucks of all kinds and knows the difference between a dump truck and a bulldozer, etc. So when I saw a set of dies from Spellbinders with three different trucks I just had to get it and make a card for him. I played one day with the fingernail polish technique where you dump fingernail polish in a tub of water, then lay pieces of watercolor paper in it to grab the mixed up colors and let dry. It is messy and smelly, but does create very vibrant colorful backgrounds perfect for kids cards. I die cut the word "vroom" out using Karen's new chunky Alphabet die set, raised it on foam and attached back on the colorful background. I die cut one of the trucks out of green cardstock and black foam and attached that to the front. Here is another view of the dimension and bright colors of the front of the card:

But Evan is going to love it even more when he opens the card and the Upsy Daisy die pops up three more trucks! 

I die cut three trucks and another VROOM out of the fingernail polish backgrounds and followed Karen's instructions attaching the three scalloped squares to the apparatus and each other. I added Evan's name to the top of the card. I think maybe I will bring this card when we go visit them in August so I can see his sweet face when he opens it. Here is a peak at that sweet face:

Thanks for visiting and watching, subscribing and sharing my videos, and thanks, too, for helping me #share the joy of creativity!

Such a cute card for your adorable grandson. I have one and will try to make a similar card for his 5th B-day. Thanks for the idea.
