Diamonds are the New Skulls

This is according to my good friend Eleanor, who had a milestone birthday on Tuesday.  Since it was a special occasion and she is a special person, I decided to try my hand at making a pop-up card.  It was harder than I thought.  For one thing, it is difficult to make tiny background pieces bend the opposite way as tiny letter pieces.  Also, the place each piece bends is different depending on where the card itself is folded AND where the cut pieces are still attached to said card.  I tried to center everything to make up for that somewhat, and I made the letters taller than normal so they would look right when bent.  All in all, it was a good learning experience, and aside from the interior cuts in the diamond that needed a little tape, it was a decent result.  Happy Birthday Eleanor.
