Pop-Up Birthday Gifts Video, 5 Million Hits & DOcelebration!

It's time for another DOcelebration!  It's a birthday celebration and more!  I celebrated a birthday earlier this month, on the 13th.  In fact, as it landed on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, it was my Stamping Club night.  One of the cards we did was this Pop-Up Birthday Gifts card.

I've been seeing cards like this for a couple years now and have avoided making one.  Why?  Because I thought they looked too hard.  But just like anything else, once you figure it out, it doesn't seem that hard after all.  And since it was my birthday, I thought..."let's do it!"

As it's a little more involved, I did make a video.  In fact - 2 videos.  Today's video features the pop-up technique.  Tomorrow's video will feature tips for the balloon punch art on the front of the card - found HERE.
