Guess what? You CAN teach an old dog new tricks! My new team member Jill taught me this adorable new EASY pop-up card technique, and as soon as I saw it, I had to make a tutorial for you! It's so simple, you won't believe how addictive these are to make.
Here's the outside of this card--cute but nothing special, right? But when you open it up... WOWIE KAZAAM!
Isn't that so awesome!? I bet you're gonna right right into the craft room and make this. But wait--you need to know how! Here's what you'll need to gather:
- Die-cut butterflies (I used the Bold Butterfly Framelits' largest size)
- Stamps (I used the Watercolor Wings stamp set)
- Inks (I used Lemon Lime Twist (new!), Bermuda Bay and Pool Party
- Card base (half a sheet of 8.5x11 cardstock)
- Papers, embellishments for front of card
- Bone folder
- Glue Dots or a liquid adhesive such as Tombow Multi (SNAIL or tape runner will not hold the tension on this one)
Ready to start? Let's go!
One other nice thing to note is that this is NOT a bulky pop-up. It can go in the regular mail, no problem! Even with six thicknesses of Whisper White cardstock, and the glue dots, it can still travel for just one postage stamp. My kinda card!
Ok! NOW you can go give it a try! And if you don't have this amazing stamp set and coordinating Framelits, I can assure you that you will NOT regret picking them up. Click here to go shop with Lyssa! I appreciate your suppport.
