Pop Up Card - Koala

Our July card swap at Craftmad were Pop - Up cards (gallery here).  I have been wanting to sit and play with Pop-up cards for a while as I visit Dr Sonia's blog and she creates her own amazing Pop-ups.  Me, I needed templates but it was still good fun.  So for the front of this card I wanted to keep it simple and have the surprise of the pop-up on the inside.  So I used four of my embossing folders to emboss strips of card stock for the front.  I then used my Just Rite Stamps for the 'Sending Hugs' badge. 

The inside I used a Kirigami pattern I bought from Easy Cut Popup back in 2012 and have never used.  I also bought a dragonfly Kirigami pattern at the same time and here is the card.  So I followed all the instructions, printed out the pattern, handcut the layers, embossed sections ready to fold and slotted them all into place.  Surprisingly easy, although you do have to be gentle when interlocking some of the layers.

I will be back soon with the other card I sent off for the Pop-up card is much more basic but just as fun.   Wishing you all a wonderful week wherever it takes you.

Thanks for visiting.
