Cocoa the Horse Birthday Pull Tab Card

Good morning friends

Today I'd like to share the birthday card I made for our 'Daughter In Law' who loves horses. The first photo shows the card folded flat and ready to put in the envelope.

I used the Hanging Charm Pull Tab for the card base, adding a layered rectangle to cover the frame and make it a solid panel for embellishing.  When the tag is pulled, the Cocoa horse scene stands up and reveals a sentiment below. I did add extra card stock strips to the reverse of the 'arms' before assembling, so the weighty panel would be easily supported.

I like to add some decorating to the reverse of my HCPT cards, since I make them as flat post-card style cards. Here is the back of this one ...
