Beany Malone Pop Up Card

I'm a big fan of the Beany Malone and Belford series books by Lenora Mattingly Weber. I made pop up cards to give to my fellow Weber-ites at our recent gathering in Washington D.C.

The White House and background came from an election card designed by Carol Barton. I used Photoshop to combine Beany's face and the suited girl from a Simplicity pattern envelope.
