365 cards challenge Day 47 Pop Up Cards

As its been such a lovely day today, thought I would take advantage of the sunshine and do a spot of gardening. I shouldn't have sat outside having my lunch then I wouldn't have realised how badly it needed doing!!
Anyway here we are a bit later than the last couple of days, with my entry for 365 card challenge, day 47 which is Pop Up cards.

Here is my card in before it pops up, only just though, as you can see in the photo!

and here it is in the open position. Had to use my Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set again, I just adore this set, yummy scrummy calorie free cupcakes....
I think this style card is really effective and the best thing about it is that it folds flat if you have to post it - you just have to hope the person you are sending it to susses out how to make it pop up without damaging the card!
I coloured the image with my waterbrushes and ink pads as detailed below, and background stamped the base card with a Versamark ink pad.

All items from Stampin' Up!
Stamp set - Crazy for Cupcakes
Cardstock - Regal Rose & Confetti White
DSP - Chocolate Chip
Inks - Close to Cocoa, Regal Rose, Creamy Caramel & Versamark
Ribbon - Chocolate Chip 1/4" grosgrain
Accessories - Scallop Oval & Large Oval punches, Stampin' Dimensionals

cute, cute, cute! love those cupcakes and that sentiment! you know i never thought about the recipient not knowing what to do with and either never pull out the card or yank it out so hard it tears it!! Guess we'll need to send directions with the card - haha!

I love this card, haven't used this set enough, really must get it out again soon, and it really lends itself well to the pop up shape doesn't it? Thanks for stopping by earlier, I haven't done much in the way of comments this week as had hubby off aswell as kiddies, sorry, normal service will be resumed Tuesday!
Hugs Sarah-Jane xx
