My First Pop-up Card

In October 2008 I received a pop-up card as part of a CraftMad swap. I had always wanted to make this type of card and my swap partner, Kerry, very kindly sent me the instructions to save me disassembling her card - LOL
It is my soccer mad nephew's 13th birthday today and I have been working on making my first pop-up card.
I played around with a few ideas during the week, but once I decided on which images to use, the card just fell into place. I made up a paper one at first, and with a little fine tuning on the cutting measurements, the card came together wonderfully!
A white textured card was used as a base, with green cardstock run through the cuttlebug with tiny bubbles folder for the 'lawn'. Images of the soccer balls were done with the computer and printed on white cardstock. Front image was layered on green 'lawn' cardstock and matted on black with corners punched. Stickers were used for number and sentiment. These lovely BIG words are available from Blue_Edge_Crafts
I think the front needs 'something' maybe I should put markings on the 'lawn' as a soccer field ??? what do you think?

  1. Great card! I think adding any more to the front would make it too 'busy', JMO. I think it looks great just as it is!
