    I don’t have everything needed to make this card but I’ll bet I can improvise and make something close to it. If I don’t get it exact, at least I will have done something different, right? Can this card be mailed? With the popups, I’m wondering if the post office would squish the card. Maybe this is one of those cards that needs to be given to the person in person, no post office. Thanks for the great idea!

  7. Oh my! What a great project! Bookmarked! I’m going to give this a try….after the holidays! Thanks so much for sharing the step by step process! You are the best! 🙂
