Stamping With Friends - Pop Up Card

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop as we share what projects we are currently working on to inspire you! You will be visiting with our Design Team Members as they share their wonderful projects and ideas to help spark your creativity.  This time our theme is "Pop Up Cards" items.  I've created a Popping Flap Card featuring the Hello Ladybug Bundle from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.  Isn't this fun!

I love this bundle and I love how my popping flap card turned out!  Wouldn't you love to be surprised by this added feature and the surprise ladybug.  I watched a number of videos to figure this out - sorry I didn't write down the names of the demonstrators :(

I suggest you watch my YouTube video to figure out how I made the card.  The instructions are a little complicated.  I've given you the measurements below.  Once you've made one card, you'll have it mastered!
