"Happy Brrrrthday" telescoping card

Click HERE for my blogiversary blog candy post.  Only a couple of days left to comment for a chance to win!   (I've added some stamps and a postcard kit to the pile!)

I saw this type of card a couple of weeks ago and decided to try to make one.  It's not hard at all.  After seeing one open HERE on Youtube, I tried it, and after a few tries with one or the other pieces upside down, I did it!!  I think they are so cute!!  The image on the front, the sentiment inside, and I put a place for signing on the last layer.  The sentiment tag on the front serves at the tab for opening. 

~DCWV Sweet Stack dsp
~Digi snowman and sentiment from Clear Dollar  *I just won their blog hop and used the prize and got these new today!!!!
~Scallops and circles from Mini Monograms ~can't tell you how long it's been since I've used that cartridge!!!
~Cuttlebug Divine Swirls embossing folder

This is so great. I like how a "new" snowman is formed when the card is opened. Thanks so much for sharing it with us on the Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge.
