Pop-up surprise!!!

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

My New Year's resolution is in action yet again... "to try all things new"! Well this time it is the good old pop-up card, I've seen them around and have always loved the concept but never put it into practice until now.
This week's assignment at Pebbles was to create some cards using the gorgeous Twitterpated or Tree House Collections and I really wanted to use the beautiful pink and yellow hues of the Twitterpated papers as Spring is in the air. And after watching my little man reading his pop-up book and marvelling at every page he turned - I decided to go with a fun and cheerful surprise inside each card. And to see more card creations from the Pebbles DT pop over to the Pebbles Blog HERE.
 
 
Pop-up cards are so simple yet surprisingly effective to create. I have used a basic technique of cutting strips into the card stock and bending each strip in the opposite direction of the natural fold of the card.

Now I've caught the pop-up bug... I think I might have to try out some new techniques, will keep you posted!

From farm to you...
