Card Poppin'

As I mentioned in the previous post, I made a few interactive cards in one night, just for the fun of it. This is the second one. It is called an Pop-Up Accordian card. I found the instructions here. I found this very easy to do because I had made books like this with students many years ago.

The harder part was finding three related images. I decided to go with "couples" as a theme. I usually show my husband my cards and he always and lovingly offers his feedback. He said I needed a stamp of a couple in rocking chairs (like they had grown old together, I guess).

While that would have been great, I don't have anything like that, so I just went with the couple of owls.

Hope you all have a great Monday!

card info: images and sentiments by A Muse, cardstock from my supply, ribbon by May Arts, Stickles, Copic - baby skin pink, raw silk, walnut, shadow pink and Prismacolor markers - crimson, warm grey 20% and 40% cinnamon toast, leaf green.

CUTE card! What a neat technique too. Great combination of stamps for this type of card. I can't wait to see what you have to show us next.
