Otterly Great Birthday 3D

So I noticed that the theme for the current AAA Birthday Challenge is '3D'.  My immediate thought was a shaker and dimensional elements, but then I remembered a die that's been sitting in my stash unused since 2016. So in the spirit of using NBUS and trying new techniques, this is what I made.

This is the front of the card...

and then you open the card to get a big surprise:)

The die is Lawnfawn 'Everyday Pop-Ups'.  See the Otter with the heart is attached to the bit that pops up.  
Now I must admit that I completely failed with this, because I forgot to add the pop up, before I attached the blue card😩.  So this was a rescue and I decided to decorate the  front and inside with the pretty patterned paper.  I'd like to say I'd know how to do this next time, but as my Australian crafty friends know, I'm challenged  when it comes to fiddly stuff!  
Stamps: MFT 'Otterly Love You'

Here's a video to get a better idea:-

I'm sharing at the following:-
