Okay.....I must admit that when I saw Sabrina's CCEE Stamper's challenge for this week, I may have groaned a time or two. I tend to avoid unusually constructed and folded cards as I find I do not ever send them out. However, after making this one, I must admit it was pretty easy and it really is mailable. AND...most importantly, a recipient will be able to figure out how to open it without my help.
By the way...the challenge was to do this technique (free standing pop up card) OR a waterfall card.
I used this stamp by Penny Black which I always turn to as I make holiday cards. The rest of the designs are designer paper or cardstock. If you would like to try one of these, there is a tutorial on Splitcoast called 'free standing pop up card'.
This is the card folded up. Ignore the thumb at the left.
I can't wait to see what the rest of the team created using this 'fold/style'....I am sure to be inspired to try this technique again....REALLY!!!! The CCEE Stamper's Blog is the place to go!!!
