Happy Birthday

For the Use Yellow challenge click
 This is a pop up card you can find the youtube video I saw 
The base measures 11 x 5 1/2
you score this a 1" 2 3/4" 3 3/4" and 5 1/2 turn over
and repeat the 1" 2 3/4 and 3 3/4
 fold all score lines in the same direction
put this piece in your paper cutter at the 5 1/2 line and cut a opening
leaving 1/2  on each side
for the inside Pop up center piece cut 3 x 5 1/2
I did this to the top for a little extra touch
insert from the front the panel that you cut
turn both end flaps in towards the center of the card base
add adhesive one one side attached the panel to the crease of the first fold
with your flap down glue the two ends together

and if none of that makes sense watch the video it's not as hard as it sounds
decorate inside and out. I used a craft knife to enlarge the center opening
for the present 

Papers are from 
present is from Sweet Treats 2.5 "
the stamps are from 
 Hope my Birthday Girl 
will like it.
