Is it still a birthday card if you have to mail it in box 🤔, this is by far the biggest birthday card I EVER made. I didn’t originally plan for it to be this big but one thing led to another and KaBang giant pop up dinosaur. My kids actually told me I was insane 🤦♀️ lol. This started off with my thinking about making a 2 ball dragon card. I had seems some pretty impressive dragons and was going to give it a go when I remembered that I had a dinosaur 🦖 skeleton stencil from YEARS ago and I thought hey why make a dragon when I can make a dinosaur and I hadn’t seen a Surprise Pop up Ball Dinosaur yet soooooo my mind was made up.

So today I have a belated Valentine card. A coworker asked me if I could make him a card to give to his Star Wars lovin girlfriend knowing that not only was I not able to have it made by Valentine’s Day, it would probably be at least a week late, but he wanted it anyway so I thought that I would try to make it as special as I could. I’d be lying if I said this card didn’t have a few challenges it was a little trickier than I thought It would be but I just kept on moving forward and before I knew it, it was done. I also have to give credit to Lois Gray Bak as after seeing her “Death Star” gave me to idea to make this “Death Star”
This card had 2 separate pop up mechanisms and it LIGHTS UP 🤯

I am so excited to show off this card, I think it turned out super cute and I have to thank Karen Ostergard , this months Crazy4Challenges host for coming up with this weeks challenge as I don’t think I would have thought to make this card without it. So you are probably wondering, what is this weeks challenge and it is…..BBRRRR. it’s cold outside in most of the Northern Hemisphere or it’s quite warm in the Southern Hemisphere. Do a winter themed card if you live in the north and a summer card themed card if you live in the south. Well I live in the North so winter card it is, but at first I was a little stumped as Christmas just past and I didn’t want to make a card that looked to Christmasy. Then I saw a Surprise Ball Valentine video from Karen Burniston that gave me the idea to make this fun snowman, and here it is.

So this is the last Crazy4Challenges challenge of the year, our challenge this week was to choose a design from one of the previous design challenges, and I decided to use my Surprise Ball pop up to make it a little more interesting.
I chose do to the C4C484 design, I decided to make the largest circle into a window and make it a pop up card.
