1 Year Congrats!

My brother has been out on his mission for one year now. Just one more to go. I can't believe it's already been a year. Wow. So for his anniversary I made this card for him.

I wanted the outside to be very simple. So when he opened it up he gets this:

A tie for every month he's been out. Hopefully it's a WoW for him. Of course, he is a 24 y/o boy so who knows. :) I got the pop up idea w/ acetate paper from Youtube member vadeler. If you click on the name you'll see the Youtube video I saw.

I used the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge for the ties. I would recommend laying them out in the way you want to see it before gluing them on. I didn't, lesson learned. :)

The designer paper used for the ties is the Basic Grey Oliver 6x6 paper pack. I used the Checkerboard Cuttlebug folder. The Enchanted Evening (blue) paper and ribbon is from PTI. Grey paper is from SU! Not sure where I got the acetate paper, metal photo brackets or the stamp.

Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway in the post below.
