I made my first pop-up cards tonight!






Check out the pop-up cards I made tonight! I learned how to make these yesterday on Lorraine's blog. You have to check out her video on how to make one of these cute cards. Her blog is great, check it out:

Thanks Lorraine!
I cut these cards at 4"x11" and scored at 1"- 2 5/8"- 3 5/8"- 5 1/2" flipped and
scored the other side in the same incriminates. You need to cut a slit at the 5" point. The part that pops up is cut at 3" x 5" and matted twice. I used my cuttlebug to add some interest on the front with coordination's paper then sanded it.
Folded, these cards will fit in a A2 envelope. They really aren't that difficult but her video is very helpful.
Click on the pics to enlarge, Let me know what you think. Shari

  9. Hola! This is Beatriz from Amazing Grace blog in Dothan, Alabama. I bought my Webster Pages at a scrapbook store called Paper Niche in South Florida when I was there teaching last weekend. I believe many other places sell them on line (scrapbook.com, Oh my crafts, etc). I used 3 pages, two of the same one.
    Your blog is awesome! I just became your follower. Have a great and blessed Sunday!
