Cuttlebug Spot - Pop-up Cards

Tuesday, 22 February 2011

Another different card style this week - pop-up cards. I saw this lovely pop-up flower tutorial online. I thought it was so pretty, I had to make one for the middle of my card. One tip, don't use thick card as I found it doesn't open up as well as thinner paper. Don't forget to pop over to the Cuttlebug Spot to see all the amazing designs this week and if you join in with us you could win a prize.

I've made my own texture plate for my card. I've been wanting to have a go at making one of these for ages. All you need is some chipboard (mine was quite thick) your Cuttlebug and some glue. Just cut a piece of chipboard the size of a texture plate or embossing folder. Cut out some chipboard shapes using your favourite dies or by hand, I used the Scribble flower. Glue them to the piece of chipboard you cut out earlier, allow to dry and then play :) I was really pleased with the result, so I've made a leaf one too.
