Pop-up Fox & Hen ATC

My internet is being shoddy tonight, and it's driving me crazy. If you're reading this, I've managed to catch the connection in one of the few moments it's been working this evening. *exasperated sigh*

So here we have a pop-up ATC with aa fox and hen I drew and watercolored, then cut out.
It pops up on two levels, but folds completely flat. If I were to re-do it, I'd make the grassy hill much shorter. This shot gives a good clue as to the construction...
And if you needed another clue, here's another angle! Ignore the strap of my digital camera hanging in the pic.
Cute, eh? Making this card made me want to give making a pop-up kids book a go. I will someday...but I am sooo stinkin' busy with holiday crafts. I've made some srsly awesome stuff for gifts in the last couple of days, but you all have to wait until Christmas time to see :)

Oh my gosh that is amazing! You are becoming an ATC queen. I am so tempted to join the ATC swap but you all have me intimidated, lol. I am thinking of still doing it.

So cute! You should be a kids book illustrator. Those animals would make the ultimate illustrations.
