Pop-Up Diorama

 This is the cover of an experimental card for me, I need a birthday card for my husband and he always without fail picks up birthday cards and dramatically shakes them open over a table and sadly proclaims... there is no money in it... (before he opens the card to read it haha) So anyways. I have had this sentiment stamped and diecut for a while now thinking (he also doesn't need a thing the lure mfg.s are way behind the times compared to stamp tool mfg.'s) I just may resort to money in his card.
knowing this his oldest sister sometimes puts a 1 dollar bill into his card. its pretty funny to watch his face and see how excited he is about that.

 a closer look at inside the window.

So, I am really not a fancy folds person. but, this looked simple enough on the challenge thread ( thanks Sabrina for the push) so, I started with the inside just picking up scraps from already cut things on the table and I had made the frame around this deer diecut with the embedded deer a few months ago and thought the shape would work in this skinny design. ( I used the score numbers in Sabrina's write up) I forgot about moving the sentiment panel closer to the left edge I centered it and then when I glued down the scored pop up it put it off set looking. So, I decided since I could not get this to really fold all the way flat when I was just playing with the scored paper that meant I should put lumpy stuff in the hole. ( so I did) and the window hole was cut with a stitched rectangle also. I like the cover more than the inside so, I think I will put money over the hole and make it a "surprise" tfl.

My hubby is the same way--forget the card, he wants the money inside (and is sad when there isn't any). This is a very neat card design and doesn't look like it was too difficult to make.
