30th Fiesta

My youngest son's 30th birthday so a special card is needed. I really like the pop up panel cards which made the style of card an easy decision - the decorative design itself wasn't, until I recalled that he loves Mexico -  immediately our Festive Birthday DSP, coordinating Birthday Siesta stamp set and Fiesta Time Framelits sprang to mind.
The colours a zingy and cheerful. The base is in Tempting Turquoise, with DSP and ink accents in Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo, reminds me of a piñata - fiesta style celebratory colours!

Here is the front of the 6" x 6" card along with the coordinating envelope (swiftly made on our envelope punch board).



The big reveal - inside the card
The letters are die cut from gold glimmer card using our Large Letter Dies, the banner above the letters is hanging loose.

And finally, the back of the card.
I love that the card is fully decorated, so bright and cheerful.
I can report back that the card was a hit!
If you haven't yet tried this card fold then do give it a go. It's an instant WOW! whether decorated in subtle colours or blinged up.
