Today’s video shows how to make a fun pop-up card with part of the pop up on the outside, sort of!! It’s another very easy straightforward card to make and has endless possibilities. For example, I’ve made card with the pop-up on the left-hand side but it could just as easily be made with the pop-up on the right-hand side.
As always I try to give plenty of tips in my videos. I think one of the best tips in today’s video gives suggestions how to hide where the colour from blends has bled through to the reverse of the image; important when the reverse will be visible as in today’s card. In my flower sample card I had die-cut another image of the flowers using Real Red Cardstock (CS) and adhered it on the back of the image so the Real Red CS blended in with the same cardstock that the card base was created in.
The stamp set I used for the flowers on the front of my card is Bloom & Grow and I coloured the flowers using the Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blend, Dark Shaded Spruce for the leaves and Light Pool Party for the buds. The two poppies inside the card are from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set and were die-cut using the matching Painted Labels Dies.
The YOU is from the Forever & Always Stamp Set stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and the LOVE is from the matching Always Dies. The dies also include the word ALWAYS and I’m really hoping that this set gets carried forward into the new Annual Catalogue that will be going live on 4th May 2021!
It is now usual for me to supply all the measurements in the box below the video including North American measurements, i.e. inches for A4 cardstock users, metric for A4 cardstock users and inches for users of North American sized cardstock. Although it requires extra effort, it really is absolutely minimal but I know how much it is appreciated so it makes it all worthwhile.
That’s about it from me today. I wish you a very blessed Sunday and I look forward to being back with you on Tuesday. In the meantime, please take care and stay safe. Happy crafting.
