I've been thinking about making (or trying to make) a pop up card then I got the email from Patti (just-a-scrappin.blogspot.com) for this week's design team challenge and thought what a perfect opportunity.
This week's challenge is: to "try a new technique" - make a card, LO or project using a new technique or style of card that you have not done before.
Example: Sewing, stamping, quilling, paper folding, etc.
I started with a pre-scored white Recollections card base. After folding it over I marked 2 1/8 inch from the left then right side of the card. From there I cut a 1 inch slit then inside popped it up.
The top layer (k&i Company bought at JoAnns last year) was cut the exact size of the card (5 1/2 x 4). Then I cut a 5 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch strip of the red heart embossed (Elsie) paper and wrapped a piece of black "net"...can't think of the name of the darn thing...tied a knot and placed a K&Co. chipboard heart on it.
Inside I put another K&Co chipboard heart on the pop up part. I used a rub on "Happy Valentines Day" that I had in my Valentine's stash. I'm not sure what the name brand is.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
