It also worked out well because I needed to make something to sort of "package" a gift card, and this card has plenty of room on the back of the main image to easily adhere a gift card.
I spied this sliding pop-up card template on my friend Diane's blog (CookieStamper). She did an adorable version of the card using a frog theme - VERY cute! She has excellent directions, so please refer to her blog for details on putting this kind of card together. She even altered the template a bit so the card fits in a standard A2 envelope! THANKS, Diane!
This was my first attempt at making this kind of card, and it was quite easy! I think the biggest challenge was getting the red backing off of the sticky tape I used to adhere the ends of the "box" together.
The main image on this card as well as the little yellow bows is Hanna, from Hanna Stamps. I used a new pencil eraser to make the polka dots. The lightly stamped flower pattern on the front of the slider is a new background image from Cornish Heritage Farms. The Holiday Sparkle sentiment is by A Muse.
....time for dinner!....
