I saw this card on YouTube last night and knew immediately I wanted to try it for my last project of this hop. I am so happy with my result. The card type is called Surprise Pop-Up Card and you can watch a fabulous video showing you how to do it here. I did modify Beate’s instructions a little bit though. I found I didn’t need the card stabilizer she added and mentions in her video and my card fold is along the side and not the top.
I think I might add some of the scalloped hearts I did for the mini album to the front or maybe a beaded oval even or something. I think it looks a little plain, but I’m still totally loving it.Supplies Needed: Standard A2 card base (score at top or side your choice…from Wal-Mart) 1 4 x 5.25 piece of card stock (also from Wal-Mart) 1 3.75 x 5 piece of card stock (the paper w/ pink hearts is Me and My Big Ideas) Scoring tool of choice (I used my Martha Stewart Scoreboard) Adhesive (I used ATG and Tacky Tape) Embellishments/punches of your choice (the one shown here is by EK Success) Ribbon (Target Dollar Section) Stamps and Ink (Verve and Versamark)
And now, let’s get onto that blog candy:
I will be sending one lucky reader a mini Creative Memories album. This album is wonderful to use as a wallet (it holds plastic perfectly) if you don’t want to use it as a scrapbook. And, it’s red of course in honor of Valentine’s Day!
