Forest Friends Pop up Birthday Surprise

I made this card for my mom whose birthday is today. 

For the outside of the card I used Campin Critters.  I cut the forest at 4 1/2". Cut the forest "floor" a second time out of sandpaper and embossed the tree tops.  The critters behind the trees were cut at 1" using the layers from those cuts and the fox was cut at 1 1/2".  I pop dotted the call out, little tree and the fox to add dimension.

The inside pop up was made using a now retired Sizzix die but it would be very easy to create this cut using your cricut if you have Design Studio or the Gypsy.  My critters on the inside were cut at 1 and 1 1/2".  The call out was created using two different ones from campin' critters welded together.  The song notes are from a punch (forgot to add those until everyone had signed the card - oops) and the embossed greeting is from a Sizzix folder.

Hello, my friend! Sorry I didn't get the opportunity to drop in on your mom's birthday to wish her a great birthday; however, please let her know a friend sends her a belated birthday wish! The card you made her is just adorable and I'm sure she got a big thrill out of it!

Hugs, sweetie, and thanks for dropping by to visit with me. I always appreciate when friends stop by and I just love hearing from you!

How cute! I love the colors and those little critters peeking out from behind the trees. What a great scene!
