Pop Up Valentine Card

Pop-up-valentine-outsideThis is the pop up Valentine card that I showed how to make on CH Morning Live last week. I don't know that you could see the outside of the card very well – here it is. The word stamp is from the Outlined Occasions Sale-a-Bration set which you can get for FREE with every $60 merchandise order!  I used the Full Heart punch and the Heart to Heart punch with Pretty in Pink cardstock and Pretty in Pink Designer Series Paper from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Collection. I've always loved the way Stampin' Up! coordinates its papers, cardstocks and inks – less thinking for me!!

This is the inside of the card. The sentiment is from the same set, the hearts are punched using the same punch, plus a few with the Small Heart punch for variety.

We cut two parallel slits into the folded edge of the Very Vanilla cardstock (about 3/4 – 1" long), and then pushed the strip of cardstock through to the other side before adhering it to the inside of the Pretty in Pink card and adding a large heart onto the pop up strip.  That's it – easy peasy and very effective!

If you'd like to learn how to make cards like this, please consider hosting a card making party with your friends – you'll make a great bunch of sample cards that you can then take home and recreate for all those card-giving occasions! Sale-a-Bration is on until the end of March so customers and hosts can earn free merchandise as well! Contact me for more information.
