Fortune Cookie Panda Pop Up

Thought of a fun idea for a pop up card that I thought might be perfect as a birthday card for my dear friend Patti, who enjoys creations with an Asian flavor.
On the front of my card, I started with a paper pieced tea pot and cup cut from Cricut's "Pagoda" cartridge using pearlized cardstock. I used Copics and a brown chalk inkpad to add a bit of color and dimension. Red foil board and gold stardream cardstock were used for the border detail and cover on the teapot. The cherry blossom branch was cut using a die from Yinise Store. Copics and stickles were used to for shading and a little sparkle.

I used Marjorie Ann Designs' "Panda Love" cutting file for my paper pieced panda. Panda's mouth and muzzle was done using the print and cut function, and I brushed a little chalk on his cheeks for some color. Cutting file for the fortune cookie is from Aletheia Shade on Etsy.

Open the card and up pops a take out box filled with more fortune cookies and a little peeking panda!

Pop up take out box was cut using Karen Burniston's Flower Pot Pop Up die. Pagoda image on the box comes from a scanned photo of an actual take out box which was printed onto white cardstock prior to die cutting with the flower pot die.

I pieced together several of the fortune cookies and attached a strip of acetate to each so I could arrange them inside the take out box at different heights. I also glued in a few napkin folded squares of red tissue paper paper to fill in the empty spaces inside the box.
Really enjoyed putting this card together! I'm really happy that I'm having more fun with the Flower Pot Pop Up die than I ever anticipated... looking forward to coming up with more exciting ways to use this interactive die.
