A Pop-Up Card!

Good Evening Stampers!

Sale-a-bration is in full-swing! I have been out a couple of nights this week already with Sale-a-bration workshops, and I have another one tomorrow night! I can't wait!

The past few days I have been spending ALOT of time creating some fun new projects for my workshops and classes, and I have been having a BLAST! One of the challenges I put on myself was to figure out how to make this card. One of my friends at Leadership received a swap similar to this card last week, and since I don't live with her I took some pictures of it, thinking it would be EASY TO FIGURE OUT! WRONG! I even asked my aspiring engineer-son, Logan, to help me figure it out as I didn't take any measurements, just pictures. He, however, was apparently too busy with his online computer game to help, so I just kept at it till I figured it out myself! I am very proud! (Maybe there's a little bit of an engineer in me too!)

Without further ado, here it is:

Cupcake pop-up

Okay, you say? What's the big deal? It's an okay card, but nothing particularly special, nothing you haven't already seen before?




Wait for it . . .

Lift the flap . .









I am absolutely IN LOVE with this card, and once I figured it out and wrote down all of my measurements, it is EASY! I immediately made another one using the "Just My Type" stamp set from the Occasions Mini, but that one will have to wait for another day as it is for my husband's birthday, which is a month away. Although he NEVER looks at my blog, it hardly seems fair to share it with the world before he gets to see it, right?

Anyhoo, I used the Create a Cupcake stamp set, matching Build a Cupcake Punch and Big Top Birthday Designer Paper. If you want to know more, you will have to ask!

So here's the deal. I'm going to give this card away! YES I AM! Don't believe me? Just leave me a comment in the comment section. Please be nice, please be clean, and please don't comment if you don't like my card. The FIRST nice, clean, complimentary comment left on my blog about this card will receive it in the mail from me! Just leave your comment along with your email so I can contact you for your address and it's YOURS! I will include a matching stamped envelope so it will be all ready for you to give away to your favorite birthday friend!

But I'm not going to stop there! Keep an eye on my blog and you will find out what else is coming in the future!

Until tomorrow, have a "StampingRox!" day!

Carol, you amaze me-it is one thing to create a beautiful card but quite another to "Engineer" a card- this is great and thank you so much for sharing your expertise

Jean Crocker

TFS this card I love it. Will you please share how you made the inside. I see how the ribbon on top is attached to the card flap but that is all I can figure out without seeing the card.I am a demonstrator too and I hope there will be a Leadership meeting near me so I can attend. Thanks again for sharing your card.

Candy Rude
