Surprise Pop-Up Card

September 4, 2016

I created this card for an aunt who recently received a cancer diagnosis. I wanted her to know that we are thinking of her. I learned about this type of card from Karen Hanson’s blog SCRaPPY CaNuCK STuDioS. This is a standard A2-sized card, but I think it packs a cute little surprise.

It opens as a tent fold card, but there is a spot for a surprise sentiment or stamped image.

And there is still room for a sentiment and a place to jot a note and/or sign the card inside.

Supplies I used to create this card: cardstock from my stash, My Acrylix™ Create Kindness—Beautiful stamp (CC1147), My Acrylix™ Create Kindness—Hello stamp (CC1150), My Acrylix™ September 2016 SOTM: Blessed Beyond Measure Stamp Set (S1609) — the Create Kindness and Stamp Of The Month stamps are only available until September 30, 2016, My Acrylix™ So Many Smiles stamp set (C1619), My Acrylix™ So Many Smiles stamp set (C1619), My Acrylix™ Pen Pal stamp set (B1539) and Black Memento™ Ink Pad (Z899). I also used the “Insert Shapes” feature in Cricut® Design Space to create a basic card with squares for stamping and layering to cut with my Cricut® Explore. If you use CDS, you will find my file here.
