I have to admit that I am a big Jennifer McGuire fan. I love her blog as well as all of the cool videos she makes. For today's card, I am posting one that I made after following one of her videos on making a pop up card. If you are interested in the technique, you can see the video here.
I included a link to the video because there is no way I could describe the steps adequately here. Basically, you will end up with a card that lays flat, but when you pull the tab, it will stand up and reveal a message.
Here is a picture of the card standing up:
The cupcake stand and saying are both from a clear set made by Impression Obsession, and the image was colored with a variety of Copic markers. Here is a side view of the card:
It really is a fun technique. The only thing I wish I had done differently is that I used thin paper. It was easy to fold, but it didn't slide as easily as heavier cardstock does. Ah well. Next time....
