Pop up cards are fun and are probably also best given by hand (I'm not going to trust all that mechanism to go through the mail man!) Using simple pop up templates, one can really do a lot with it to create fun scenes that pop out inside the cards. I did one summer 180 degree Thank You card using the Havana Collection from Prima, as well as a postcard-inspired 90 degree inspiration card using the World Traveler's Collection from Bo Bunny.
For how to consider constructing pop-up cards, I highly recommend this link.
SUMMER POP UP CARD (180 Degree)
A quick note on finding matching cardstock and stamping ink selection: Prima's design papers shows the color palette of the collection at the bottom so it is easy to find the matching ink and cardstock. How cool is that! I used the Seafoam cardstock as a matting base to further accentuate the summer color theme.
POSTCARD INSPIRED WORLD TRAVELER INSPIRATION CARD (90 Degree)
For the cardstock, I chose Sunflower based on the yellow Ostrich Postage Stamp from the Postage paper. As the image of the castle that I chose as the multi-color focal image had similar shade of yellow, and blues, the red (out of the basic trio of RBY) was the background that I chose to ground the collage. The message would be intended to be written in the "postcard" inside. How cute is that!
Thanks for dropping by. Hope you enjoyed the cards!
