Surf's Up, Dude!

Back in the beginning of the year, we attended SU's Regional at the Hawaii Convention Center, it was awesome! Well, one of my fellow stamping sisters, Norine (Hi Norine!) demoed this really cute and cool pop-up card featuring this bear from the set called Under the Stars. It's actually a set with a camping theme. I thought that this was such a clever idea, I just had to use this to make a birthday card for a friend's birthday.
I sponged the background with ballet blue to give the look of the sky/ocean. The wave, surfboard and the words Surfer Dude was taken from a piece of DP. This was very convenient for me since I didn't have to stamp and color but just cut them out! Here's a closer view of Mr. Bear on his surfboard.
And a side view so you can see the pop-up piece.
I thought that this was pretty cool. Thanks Norine for teaching us how to make this card and for the bear image too :) It is so hot and humid that being at the beach sounds like a good idea right about now! Have a great day and thanks for looking in today!
