Here is a card we are making at my Stamp Club on Monday night. I've been wanting to try a "Surprise Pop-up Card" since I saw the tutorial on SCS here.
For this card, I wanted to use one of the new Level 2 Hostess sets from SU!. This is Serene Spring. This set has 2 beautiful images. This image is embossed in black then watercolored with ink and markers using only the new in-colors. I used the outline flower from Heartfelt Thanks to decorate the background. I revised the dimensions slightly from the tutorial so that the back CS would show through. The front CS is the new Tangerine Tango and the back piece is "Baja Blue".
And here is the card opened...
I'm really happy with how this turned out. It was a lot easier to make than I thought it would be. Sometimes I see a ton of steps for a tutorial and think..."wow, that's a lot to do". But, it really wasn't hard at all.
If you decide to make a pop-up card, send me a link to your picture in either a photo gallery or a blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
