When I first started card-making, I used to make pop-up cards all the time. My stamping was pretty ordinary back then, so I guess I thought I had to add something impressive! The nice thing about this pop-up and the last one I showed you is that they can be added after the card is made. So, if you have a card that is a little too ordinary, you can just add the pop-up insert to it, and make it a wow.
Here I've used the very cute Look Who's Turning set to make an ordinary card:
into a wow:
It looks complex, but it's really quite simple. The folds are just in quarters, and the cuts are just done with scissors and then folded back in the opposite direction. You can stamp less images if you need more room to write.
This is one card that doesn't end up tossed on the floor by the child who is opening it :o)
The colours I have used are Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze and So Saffron.
Love it too.ReplyDelete
