Kyoto Kuties Birthday Pop-Up

I am loving this birthday card: made using my Silhouette Cameo and SCAL3. The card frame was made a file that was available from the Silhouette on line store for only 99 cents. It got re sized to fit this card.I love how the Silhouette Cameo cut this so easy without any issues like my other machine. The finished card size is 5" x 7" to accommodate the surprise inside. The paper used is from My Little Shoebox and is called Oasis - Pink Blossom.......I LOVE this paper!!!
Slowly open the card:

Side view:

Card Fully opened: it's a stage card (for Kim Score's tutorial how to make this card - click here). I did make a small adjustment to the size of the stage by making it shorter to accommodate the stamped message. The stage is embossed with an Asian embossing folder (difficult to see from the photos). The "pop-ups" are also using acetate for support.
The inside stamped message:

Here are the "kuties"!!! They are all about 3" high. Clouds were made using a Fiskars cloud punch along with swirls embossing folder. Use a Martha Stewart grass punch for the stage. All the images are from the Kyoto Kuties SVG cut file that is available FREE from Under a Cherry Tree Jin Yongs's site here. Using Washi for the clothing rally added some fun to the ladies. I was really impressed with how the Silhouette Cameo cut the lavender umbrella stick where the width is only about 1/16" - wow!!!! I am impressed with it. The fan is cut using Metallic Gold paper with scored fan lines after it is cut.

The tree in the background:

The card can be completely flat
