TLC132 - Believe...

This card was created for SCS's Technique Challenge TLC132... Loved this one! :) The tutorial on how to create a surprise pop-up card can be found here.

I started with a Purely Pomegranate card stock base of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2", then cut out the following layers: Groovy Guava 4 x 5 1/4", Whisper White 3 7/8 x 5 1/8", Making Memories Funky Vintage Patterned Paper 3 3/4 x 5", So Saffron 2 1/2 x 4".

After cutting out the various layers, I cut the slide portion of the card. I left a 1" margin on 3 sides, and scored the remaining 1" margin at the top of the card. I also scored about a 1/2" from the bottom of the slide piece, and halfway between the two score marks... LOL, sounds confusing, but it's not so bad! :)

I then used my scallop punch to make a little notch in the top of the patterned paper. After that, I used tacky tape to attach the So Saffron layer to the patterned paper. Once that was secure, I attached all the layers. To finish off the card, I stamped my sentiment in Purely Pomegranate ink, used the scallop punch on a scrap of paper on the reverse side of the pattern, and punched out two circles (1 3/8", 1 1/4"). I stamped my flower in So Saffron ink, used the Making Memories Pearl Glaze on it to soften the image, then cut it out and attached it to the scallop with a pop dot and a clear rhinestone brad.
