I love this Glamour Girls Stamp Set, and decided to create with it today. Since it is the Halloween season, purple, black, and green, seemed the perfect color choices!
Here is my finished card:
|Isn't she just fabulous? You can find here in the Scraptownlady Store - see link below! The text on the purple panel reads HEY, girlfriend! Sorry about the watermark - couldn't find a good place to put it!|
On to the tutorial...
|Step 1. Create your card base. I chose to use an A2 base, so my card base is 5.5" x 4.25".|
|Step 2. Finish card as desired.|
|Step 3. Create inside piece for pop-up. It needs to be a bit smaller in length and width than your card base.|
|Step 3. Here you can see the insert size - I just laid it on the card for the visual effect. Don't glue! You're not finished yet!|
|Step 4. On your folded edge, decide how deep you need your pop-up to be, and draw a 'cheat' line. Find the center of that line. Then decide how wide you want your pop-up to be and mark those lines.. Mine is about 3/4" wide.|
|Step 5. Cut in to your first drawn line. You'll have a little flappy looking piece like mine above.|
|Step 6. Open your insert base. Use your fingers and gently push inwards on the flap you created. When you get it like you want it, gently fold your card, and press the flap flat. It should look like this!|
|Step 7. Use adhesive of choice. Apply to your flap.|
|Step 8. Apply your inside sentiment, image, die cut, etc. Voila!|
