Pop Up Card

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....

That is so cute. I'm going to have to try that technique. Love that stamp you used.
