Good morning!
Here's a surprise card for someone special!!
The outside is pretty plain (although the pink embossing is actually pink glitter embossing powder).  The die is from Spellbinders (Labels 39 and Labels 39 Decorative Accents).
I dyed the seam binding with Angel Pink Memento ink refill.

When you open the card, it's a whole different story!
This card is perfect for the little dancer in YOUR family or
For one of your friend's little girl who dances.
It's a pop up card.
I started the card with a panel 5 X 8 and scored in the center so I would know where my wall should start etc.
I stamped The Floor 360P first right below the score line and extended the boards to the end of the card.
Next I masked off from 7/8" up so that only 3 rows of bricks of the Brick Wall 260P were stamped. I took the masking tape off and stamped the Wood Grain 626P twice.
Next I made double slits 3 times for the pop ups.  The middle one is longer to make it pop out further putting the center girl out front. I folded the card down and made sure the pop outs were pulled out in an opposite direction and used a bone folder to make those fold lines really stay well.
The Ballerinas were stamped, colored and fussy cut then glued to the pop outs.
I added lace as curtains and tacked down in back then glued down in front and trimmed as necessary (also trimmed sides to make sure curtains did not extend over insides). Now I glued bottom to bottom part of yellow panel (8 1/4 X 5), folded card down and glued the top down.  I added a heavy duty magnet to the top and bottom then glued it to the pink card (8 1/2 X 5 1/2"). 
Stamp the Dance Your Heart Out 021D with VersaMark and Pink Sparkle powder and emboss. Die cut with the Spellbinders set (Labels 39) and frame with light green decorative die which coordinates (Labels 39 Decorative Elements).

And there you go, a dancers delight pop up card.
Well, thanks for visiting today, hope you got some inspiration.

Absolutely adorable Robin! Love the surprise inside, not to mention how incredible the inside is! Great job extending the floor, and I love how the back wall is part brick and part wood!! Wish I knew a little dancer so I could make one too!
