Birthday Card From Gail

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
Today I'm heading up to Mesa with some SaddleBrooke girlfriends.  There is a stamping convention that we will be attending so I'm at a full run this morning.  I want to share a FABULOUS birthday  card that Jack received for his birthday from my good friend Gail...............
Here is what he pulled out of his envelope.  To look at it........You might think.........What kind of birthday card is that.  Well let me tell you friends...........It's a 'card in a box' type of pop-up card.
 The fun to this card begins when you unfold the card and let it 'pop-up' and do it's THING!
Gail created this fun sentiment for Jack's card....... 
And decorated each of the four flaps with some type of message. 
The inside of the box holds several insert panels that support all the balloons that Gail had spilling out from the center.
Here's a close-up of those balloons and the panels that were added to the inside square. 
And this view is to help you better understand how those panels were inserted into the center.
Here you can see all the balloons that Gail added to the center panels.
This is what the card looks like when your looking down onto the card.
 Gail also took advantage of the back panel of her card........and added a sweet message to Jack.
 
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you some of the swap cards that the ladies who participated in my Saddle-UP! Event card swap had made..........Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

These are such great cards. They are all over the internet right now. I haven't tried one yet; but, I'll get there. I would have to make footballs and hockey pucks for my hubby. =) Thanks for sharing Jack's card in a box with us! So very nicely done!
