It's All About the Inside

Hi friends! First of all, thank you SO much for your kind comments on my last post. You all are the best! I'm still having a hard time, but crafting has been a good distraction.

I haven't entered a Lawnscaping challenge in a while, so I decided to create a card for the "Don't Forget the Inside" challenge. This card went through three iterations before turning into this card:


I'm digging the black and white, but here's the inside:


I used two Lawn Fawn sets: How Delightful and Just My Type. The papers are from Basic Grey's Lauderdale collection (which I don't know how I ever lived without). Here's a close-up:


Yes, it's a pop-up. And no, I had never made a pop-up card before. But, I figured it out without having a nervous breakdown. It helped to make a base underneath the patterned paper to add structure and also to cut the patterned paper after I had centered the pop-up. I could have just figured out the measurements in advance, but that would have required more thinking than I'm capable of doing at 11pm. Here's the side view:


Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

  2. Oh I love this! Love your black and white front and then when you open it, a huge shot of color reveals itself! That is fabulous! And I LOVE that you made your own pop up. I could have never done it! So glad you played along with us again. We've missed you!

  14. What a fantastic job w/ the pop up!! I also love the colors. I wanted to make a pop-up card. Stamped & colored a ton of images, but just couldn't do it w/out a meltdown ;) (too much going on in life). Great job!

  18. Gah! I gasped when I saw the inside - how fabulous is this??? Love, love, love it. I find sometimes muddling through a new technique can really help when I need to focus my mind elsewhere.
