Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge


This month, it's all about being interactive!

I don't have any of the movers and shakers dies as yet - hopefully they are in the air right now - so until they arrive I tried making a pop-up card for the interactive challenge.

I found this tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers for a pop-up gift card holder but substituted the gift card for a small sentiment panel.





The front panel of the card is made from different dp papers and finished off with a Happy Day stamp and die.  The inside is stamped with lots of blooms and turning a new leaf stamps.




This was really easy to put together especially as I already had the inside stamp panels on my table from a week ago when I was playing away.  I did get a bit sticky with the score tape though!





As you can see the card folds nice and flat for posting.

Many thanks for popping in today - we are off to dinner with friends in Oxford tonight so I must go pack a bag.  I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else has made when we get back tomorrow.

Chris, this is lovely. I think adding the patterned stamped paper to the inside was an awesome idea...I will definitely have to try that!
