Good morning. I want to share another anniversary card with you that I finished over the weekend. This is for a younger couple that we really enjoy being around. This is my first attempt at the “surprise pop-up card”. I followed the tutorial here, most of you probably recognize the artist, Beate Johns. It was much easier that I thought, and you can make it any size.
Here is a picture of the card when it is closed.
These are photos of the full size card, one opened as you would see first.
And this one, with my handwritten message on the back. You could also put another stamped sentiment here if you like. I placed some dark green paper under the back of the card so you could see the tag more fully.
The paper I’ve used is Basic Grey, and I thought it was beautiful. The two blues and dark green are regular card stock. I used a MS punch and a Cheery Lynn die for the top of the card.
I added a button, ribbon piece for a bow and some pearls to finish it off. Of course there is also ribbon on the end of the tag. (I made it this color by coloring a light blue piece with my dark green Sharpie marker.
