Caveman gift

Hello lovely people,

It is a beautiful sunny morning here in Gloucestershire so Dr. Hubby and I are off out for a spin in the new car with a pit stop at the Lavender Bakehouse on the way back for coffee and cake :-)

While I'm out and about I thought I'd share a pop-up design that I made for one of my nephews.
You can see it was a sunny day when I took these photos too!

I totally fell for the cute little cave people in the Sticks and Bones collection from Polka Doodles and bought the whole lot of them; there are loads of cute cave girls, boys and dinosaurs too!

How adorable is this wee chap with his gift basket and stone envelope?!

I took a more angled shot so you can see the fancy fold design; it's such an easy and fun card shape I think.
Probably should have done a tutorial - lol!

Perfect colouring here of this cute little guy Kat... his hair looks like it's got a bad case of static - a bit like mine before I get at it with the hot brush! Love the clever fancy fold too!

Fab colouring job and the papers are brilliant. What I've seen of this set does look fab. I bet your nephew loved it! How was the test run in the new car? Hope you and Dr Hubby had a nice outing.
