Balloon Adventure, Birthday Card, Stamping Technique, 2017 Occasions Catalog

Here is my card for the swap I am going to be participating in tonight at Terri's Technique Tuesday.  The front of the card is on the right and the inside of the card is on the left.  Click on the photo for a closer view.  

The technique used here is called "Floating Pop-up".  For this card you need to cut 3 pieces for layering the front, inside cover and inside bottom.  You need to cover the inside front because you have to hide part of the Window Sheet.  Perhaps not so much hide it as keeping it held in place to get the effect of it floating or popping up.  

The package for my pop up is just cut decorative paper.  But I had to use 2 pieces together because the Window Sheet piece needs to go inside.  That Window Sheet was cut 1/2" wide and 3" long.  Scoring one end at 1/2".  That's the part that gets taped under the inside cover piece.  You need to stamp and decorate all of those pieces before you assemble the card.  

It was fun to make and I'm excited to see what cards I get in exchange!!  I will share them with you!

The instructions I have for this technique is to cut the card base 4-1/4" x 11".  Score at 5-1/2" and fold.  I already mentioned the Window Sheet above. And you decide what you want for the pop up part and make two so you can tape them back to back with the window sheet between it. Making two also helps it be not so flimsy too.  For mine, I did trim my Window Sheet down by a half inch because it was too long and just made the package flop over.  

It was a fun card to make.  I made an extra one so I will be offering one up for grabs in a drawing of those who leave a comment.  I'm not groping for comments. So just saying "pick me" will be just fine. I will do a random drawing on Sunday March 24, 2017.  

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Love that card but looks complicated and would love to win it and see it "in person".
