I saw this wonderful pop-up of hearts card and pattern on http://extremecards.blogspot.com/ called a 'Pile of Hearts' and thought it would be fun to make a pop-up card that was not from a die cut, but one I cut out from a design. It wasn't as easy as it looked and although the first one I made (a Valentine) didn't close perfectly, I was happy with the results.
But it kept bothering me as to why it didn't line up properly when closed and that made me determined to get it exactly right, so I then made this second one and all went well. I also wanted to decorate this one in more detail, maybe as a wedding card, but because it is a large card - one piece of 8 1/2" x 11" CS folded in half - it took much longer than I thought it would.
So finally, after many hours, here it is - a pop-up card I made without a die cut. :<) I hope you like it. Thank you CPEEP for the great card idea - it was a challenge!
Thanks for stopping by today!
It is sunshine again today here in WI and one can finally believe that Spring is on the way!
