It's time for another Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge and this week's challenge is to make a card that has some type of pop-up element. Since this goes in my "fancy folds" category, I was excited about this one. I used this Pop-up Gift Card Holder tutorial from SCS. SCS is one of my go-to resources for clear, easy-to-understand tutorials.
I colored Fluff with Copics and used a glitter pen on the frill at the top of his hat. I used this week's CPS Sketch #282 for the design for the front of the card. To allow for the tie to keep the card closed I moved the circles in the sketch a bit to the left.
I used a scrap of drawing paper to make the envelope to hold the gift card. I used a 1" circle punch to create the cut-out to make it easy to remove the gift card from the envelope. Next time, I'll either decorate the envelope. After assembling the card, I added the "Happy Birthday" panel with a few pop-dots. I will definitely be using this tutorial again. It's so easy to do!!!
