Pop Up Cards

Good morning!

I had so much fun with the last challenge I joined that I decided to join another Mod Squad Challenge.

The challenge this week was to make a pop-up card.  This week it's sponsored by Stampendous and there is a really nice prize....which I would like to win.  :-)

So, I went through my stamps and found one that I thought would pop up nicely. And so, I made a baby shower card that looks something like this:

This is the front of the card.  I used a rubber ducky patterned paper, then stamped the image (Stampa Rosa Stamps) and cut it out with a Spellbinders die.  What you can't see is the outside of the die. I left it on after I cut it out and sponged the yellow ink  around the inside, so there is a small white border around the cut out part.  And forgive the wonky colors.  I don't have a good digital camera, so I have to live with what I have.

This is the inside fold where I stamped the image, colored it and cut it out, then popped it up. I made my pop-up parts too big, so I had to cut out a sizzix grass die to cover my mistake, but I think it turned out pretty good.

This is the inside of the card, the top part. You can see the shadow from the baby carriage on the back, and the best folds up flat to fit in an envelope.  The very best kind of pop-up card.

I hope you have a great week.
