"Love the Fall" sliding pop-up card

Here is another one of the cards I taught in my pop-up card class. This is a sliding pop-up card. The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye, the cardstock is Bazzill, the tree was cut from the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut cartridge, the "love the fall" stamp is Studio G (and was sent to me by my wonderful Cricut secret sister, sugarbbmom!), and the little leaf stamp is by Autumn Leaves, quite appropriately. Both stamps used Colorbox Cat's Eye chalk ink in dark brown. I outlined the tree and the fall stamp with cinnamon Stickles, and used crystal Stickles on the leaves of the tree. I tied a piece of raffia under the tree trunk. Here's the card lying flat, ready for mailing:

Here's the card with the slider pulled out, "popping up" the tree, and revealing the window where you could write your message:

Here is another look at the tree popped up:

And here is a blurry, but close-up, picture of the lovely stamp. I just love all the detail of this Studio G! You can also see the thin line of cinnamon Stickles surrounding the stamped image:
