Birthday Card #6 Stripes are Nice

You can really use any size of card that you want. Mine was 4 x 5 inches (finished size). 2. Now you will cut your paper stripes. To do this I used my paper cutter but angled my paper to get an uneven strip of paper. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Like this. The ends of the ribbon fold around the front of the card like this: Not Your Grandma's Pop Up Card. Pop up cards are fun, we've all been making them since kindergarten right?

Not Your Grandma's Pop Up Card

Well we're all grown up now, and so are the cards! What you need- Cardstock Paper glue Exacto knife Ribbon Glitter (optional) Step 1- Cut out two of your pop up figures. You can cut out anything you can think of as long as they are both the same and have a box at the bottom to anchor them onto the card. Step 2- At the base of our pop up image, cut a slit on each side about half an inch into the box. Fold your pop up down at the base of the slits you just cut. Step 3- Glue each square onto a larger piece of paper (the paper you want for the outside of the card). You can cover the white squares with other prettier paper if you like.

On the front side I cut a decorative edge with a Martha Stewart Punch. On the back side I free handed then cut a partial heart. Now when it's all folded up it looks like this. All set!

I have had a sinus infection all week and Melissa is traveling so I fell behind a little. However, if you are visiting the blog on Friday.....welcome! This small "card" is perfect to say all the right things whether you have a friend moving, leaving a job, or a special happy birthday. Of course, as most things often do, this works for any occasion. To create this fun project you will need the following supplies: card stock, patterned paper, stamps, ink, three 3x3 envelopes, punches Next, cut a piece of Marina Mist card stock to 3-1/2" x 8-1/2". Now you are going to create the cards (inserts) that go in the 3x3 envelopes. Here is what they look like finished. Next, fold the envelope flap down into the envelopes and insert your cards. Add Scor-Tape or Sticky Strip to the back of all the envelopes and to the front as well on ONE envelope only. Love you bookmark.
