Greeting card for a former friend

This project is actually from last year but only now I managed to write a post about it.
A friend of our "old boxes" group celebrated his birthday: me and my boyfriend bought him a bottle of wine and a book, a classic. could I pack them attractively and avoid cheesy birthday greetings? Here is how I did it! (Please click on the photos to see them larger)

I packed the presents with normal paper...

Then I drew small scenes with caricatures of all us "Old Boxes": the theme was "outside sports"

And finally I glued all together, so to create a small, bucolic pop -up scene with the Spree-book and a mountain -bottle:

Tja! I think it is a very nice idea,
I congratulate myself! :-P Only, it is a pity that the friend whose received it later turned his back to us. Na ja, things that happen...But my greeting card is still nice, isn't it? ;o)
