Sending Smiles ~ Pop Up Card

Good morning~ Today's card is all about inspiring us to send some "Happy Mail" just to brighten someone's day.  Let's do our part to keep snail mail alive!
It's my turn to post over at the Dies R Us Inspiration blog today with a cheerful pop-up card... 

Let's get started!

I cut the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Pop Up out of some green card stock.  and adhered it to the inside of an A-2 sized card base and added a few clouds from Memory Box Stitched Cloud Trio.

I cut three Frantic Stamper Sunflowers out of white card stock and colored them using distress inks.  I then tucked the flowers into a Cheery Lynn Nested Flower Pot that was cut from Kraft card stock and colored in the same way
This mailbox from Lawn Fawn Happy Mail is so darling cut out of pretty printed paper.

 The letter inside the mailbox unfolds to reveal a sweet message for the recipient.

Two Elizabeth Craft Designs Birds add a fun and whimsical touch as this little birdie delivers the message.  

  Here's the outside of the card.  It is completely flat when folded for mailing....

 and a fun card with lots of dimension when opened!
