"The Impossible Card"
I decided to make a special birthday card for a child at church.  This card 5 X 7 lays flat and pops up when taken out of the envelope and can stand on a shelf to enjoy for a long time.  
I got the idea from pinterest where I linked to Maymay Made It blog with instructions. 
I used the Stamp of the Month - "Card Captions" for the "Happy Birthday" and on the back "Congrats"  will get that photo posted also.  I also used the "Something Fierce" paper and compliments.  The workshops; scrapbooking and cardmaking also look great!! It's been a "fierce" week at work so I didn't have time to finish this as I planned.  I will add a second take and include photos of the cuts.  This is a fun card. and can be made any size, vertical or horizontal and works great with our double sided paper.  This card base was made with the willow paper cut at 5 X 7.  I cut the pop-up scallop using Fancy tags thin cuts and only cut the scallop portion, positioning the tag part so it didn't cut. (demo photo later)  I also used the scallop border from the "Decorative Borders" thin cuts for the "bridge" portion. One heart I had laying around was the "Stitched Hearts" thin cuts. 
Now "Hop" on over to Laurel Seabrook's blog  to see her great work!  Be sure to visit all the consultants on their blogs to get some great crafting ideas! Please leave a comment, we love your encouragement. To get any of the products you see, contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here.)
