How do you surprise someone you love a lot on Christmas? You give them a pop-up card that you made yourself. I love your idea for a card. I was thinking of using old card faces for the card stock. Do you think that would work out for this project?

I love the colors of this card. Very festive!

I want to send tomorrow by mail.
