Free Standing Pop Up Card

Flat card ready to put in the envelope.

Pull the tag and Tadah! a card base emerges.

Yes, another card I had been seeing all over blogland and just had to try. This card is for my friends birthday next week. I have used the tutorial from over at Splitcoast Stampers....great tutorial as per normal.

I use SU Blush Blossom for the base of this card which I stamped with a dotty stamp from the Stamping Up stamp set Fun Filled. I used Versa Mark and Blush Blossom inkspot. I have added a beautiful 'Best Wishes' sticker from the Sticker Store. To create the tag I have used yet another image that was sent to me in an image swap over at Craftmad. So again, sorry I do not no the name....mental note...we should write names on back of images. Anyways, I coloured the image with my watercolour pencils and aqua pen. Then layered this onto SU Perfect Plum. I really liked how the lady in her tutorial had the layered circles around the eyelet at the top of the tag. So out came my nestabilities and I cut two circles and folded them in half over the tag and added the eyelet. Found some offcuts of ribbons that matched. All done. :-)
