Fun Fold and Fun New Images

It is not very often that I take time to do fancy folds or fold techniques but there is a challenge at Timeless Tuesday featuring  a pop up fold and I have not done one for ages so I decide it was time to take some time to do one.  Also, I wanted to use some of the new digital images Laurie put out for her mid month release at Doodle Pantry.
This is one of the sets.  I know these images could be used as accessories for Laurie's birds, worms, ants, and other critters but I wanted to used them as images on their own. You can find it here.  So here is my surprise pop up fold card closed.

And here it is open. It was difficult to take a picture so you can tell what is going on. Hope you can figure out what parts are moving.

I used some of the small images, precolored and outline, to make a background paper.  Enlarged one of the top hats for my main image.  Then used one of the sentiments for the inside.
If you would like to make one of these surprise cards, Splitcoaststampers has a tutorial.  I used the video tutorial as my guide, making it into a card that can have writing on the inside.
All the papers and images are from the set.
I used a variety of black buttons which I threaded with red thread.

Thanks for looking and make sure you head over to Doodle Pantry to check out all the new digital sets for this month as well as entering the challenge at Doodle Pantry Digital Doodle Challenge.  Receive the darling Quirky Stork set for playing along.

Thanks for looking.  Hope you are inspired to make one of these fun cards too.
