Pop-Up Card



 This is my first pop-up card and it was fun. The tutorial can be found here  on Splitcoaststampers if you would like to make one. It really was easy. I'm using a couple of the stamp sets that will be released tomorrow (Tuesday) at Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company. The stamp set on the outside of the card is Dogwood Blossoms and the inside image/sentiment is Blessings. The DT will be having a blog hop starting Tuesday and going through  Friday showing these and other sets that will be released. Hope you'll hop along with us.

My card is for the FOSTV challenge at Home of Speedy TV and it is to decorate the inside of your card. I used one of the pretty images from Blessings and cut out only the rabbit's head and propped on the sentiment. Love his long, floppy ears. I'll be showcasing that complete image later in the week.

A little tip: To get the purple nestabilitie the size I wanted, I put down the nestie and traced the outer edge and then cut out with scissors. My next nestabilitie size would have left a larger rim than I wanted.  That is a litte trick I learned from Lois aka Clownmom, one of the MFP team members.

How adorable! Way to go, attempting the pop up card, Benzi. Some day I may try that. ;)

That bunny is so cute, and what a nice surprise to have him pop out when the card is opened.
