Dynamic Duos #13 - Pop Up Birthday Presents

Today's post is for the Dynamic Duos challenge this week to use Early Espresso and Crumb Cake plus Neutrals. I tried a couple of new things for my card today, Double Embossing with the Big Shot and a Pop Up on the inside of my card. I followed a tutorial by Lisa Young for the pop up. I paper pieced the presents on the front of the card and added the little flowers and pearls. The ribbon is actually Chocolate Chip Scallop Dots, but it is more the colour of Early Espresso than Chocolate Chip. I love how the pop up turned out, it is easier than it looks to make.
