Wake up to rain this morning. Again. Hopefully, just isolated showers…….Houston has had all the rain we can withstand.
So. Let’s talk about something more inspiring. A card. A fun card that has movement!
This was from my recent Card Buffet –
Looks like a fairly average card. Then you open it –
….and the gift card just pops up! This picture doesn’t really show that, but look how the inner Whisper White piece is attached.
I designed the inside 2 ways. Here the gift card would cover the word ‘spending’. I thought that was clever. The other way is was just below the first greeting.
I found the directions for this via the interweb and decided to give it a shot. It was way easier to make – even in my Card Buffet set up. They were thrilled!
Basic card base, 4 1/4 x 11. Three scores at 2, 7 1/4 and 7 3/8. Using the Envelope Punch Board, line up the longer scored panel end (not the 2″ side) at 1″ and punch. Flip, and do the same. Fold down and fold up. Basic card front for this style of card.
For the inside pop up piece, its 6 1/4 x 3 1/4. Score at 1 3/4 and 6.
Believe it or not. In person, the ribbon looks the same color. And, the packaging said so. However, the magic of my camera – make it look a different color. Pooh.
Go make a card and make someones day.
