Last week the Technique Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers was to make a Surprise Pop Up Card.
I was so excited about it - I ended making 2 of them.
Here's how it looks closed
Then you pull the tab at the top and this happens!
How cute would this be sitting on a shelf or table? I colored little Hoppy Poppy with Tombow Markers - spreading the color around with Clear Glitter Wink of Stella so there's lots of sparkle
(that you can't see in the photo!)
Then I needed a birthday card for a friend and had this King of the Grill stamp and die set that I have never used since purchase, probably 4 years ago?? I thought it was perfect for a male card. This set is so fun with stamps for all the layers - burger, cheese, lettuce, ketchup and even an olive stuck in the bun! I popped up the bun pieces on foam so it's quite dimensional!
And here's the surprise when you pull the tab.
You'll find the technique tutorial on YouTube here.
