Theatre Pop Up Card with a Stitched Tag

---->  Ihr findet die deutsche Version dieses Postings hier: Deutsch  ;-) <---

Hi, everyone!
I am thrilled to say I have been asked to become one of the GDT at 613 Avenue Create! Thanks to Chana and Kathy for asking me, and thanks to the whole team for the warm welcome. 
Pop over to our Neighbourhood at 613 Avenue Create to meet the super talented Design Team!

 The challenges are always "Anything Goes" with an optional theme. This weeks twist is "Someone Special (male)", and we are sponsored by the fabulous Rick St. Dennis.
I´m in love with his creations - and I´m sure that I´m in good company:).

 All the world´s a stage,

and all the men and women merely players...

 (by William Shakespeare: "As You Like it", Act II)


(by me :))

I needed a very special card for one of the fantastic  (male) actors of my theatre.  (Our next premiere is in little more than one week *whew*.) When I saw the images of RSD for the very first time, I knew that those are perfect for my project.

I decided to make a Theatre Pop Up Card, using Captain Mc Steeme and Kaualani. Aren´t they a great couple - they look like the leading actors in a play, right? :))

The cards front side is covered and closed by a tag. If one removes the tag, the doors open automatically -  and the Pop Up Card pops up :)))).
(I was not sure, if my strange idea might work  - but everything went as planned. It´s a miracle :)).

Although the card is for a man, I decided that it would not make a faux pas to use some ribbons and embroidery.  That´s not manly? Hey! Don´t shriek it with fright! My justification is the curtain *LOL*.)

I wanted to paint a vintage background to create the scenery, but fortunately I found a nice image at  Create with TLC and the Artfire Shop, and coloured the background in a monochromatic and "soft" way. 

The simple Pop Up construction.....
  ...and the card with the tag (reverse side).

Images : Kaualani and Captain Mc Steeme (Rick St. Dennis)
Background: Artfire Shop
