Cake Pop up Card

I had been toying around with the idea for making a pop up card since days. But was not able to come up with an appropriate idea. Just recently a colleague of mine asked me to make a birthday card for her best friend and i thought why not to give pop up card a try!!!

When i think of pop up cards, the first name that comes to my mind is Dr Sonia. Browsing through her blog i came across a fab tutorial of cake pop up card and thought of giving it a shot!!
The link to Dr. Sonia's tutorial is here.

This is what i came up with

Its said that the front of a pop up card should be kept simple. So I just used 2 candles, some ribbons and a sweet image to embellish the front.

This is the inside of the card. I wanted to give it a party look. Hence added the "Happy Birthday" on a silver twine.
I wanted to try 2 pop ups. Hence added a cake pop up and another simple pop up that shows 2 teddy friends!!

And since all my cards always have a poem, added few words to complete my card!!!

The 2 pop ups

Please do leave back your valuable comments!!

A little achievement

Hi friends,

At times, I wonder how small things can give you immense please and sense of achievement.
A friend of mine has her own event management firm in muscat .Here is its link Areej T&C.
At the end of any event she loves to gift her client with some momento. She had recently organized an event for the HR department of a company. Now as a momento she had in mind a frame that she wanted them to put in their reception area.

She has particularly asked the photographer to capture the different expressions of all the employees during the event. And then she asked me to write a poem that talks about the various phases of corporate life and how these employees love being a part of that company.

It gets difficult when time constraints are placed when people ask for poems. After some pondering and head scratching I came up with something small and cute. She loved the poem and quickly framed it up with all the photos of the employees in various expressions. All this in just 2 days..!! This is the pic of the frame...

Her client loved the frame and put it up in their reception area.. just as she wished for them too!!! She was really happy as her.
And if u talk of me...i was on cloud 9... and kept beaming happily the whole day... After all its not everyday that my poems are in limelight :P   :)

Just wanted to share my happiness with all of you :)
