Hi…Diane here. This week the Scor-Pal team is hopping with SEI! Today I have a fun pop up tutorial for the inside of your card. I don't know where the idea originated but you can use lots of different images such as flowers, hearts, butterflies, etc. Today I am using balloons. The front of the card is a clean and simple layout.
 



First, start with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base. Then cut a 5 1/4 x 10 1/4 piece for the inside layer. Using the Scor-Pal, align the inside layer at the 1/8" groove. Score the 10 1/4 side at 4 1/4, 4 3/4, 5 1/4,
5 3/4, and 6 1/4.



  
 Turn the paper over to the back. Mountain and valley fold the scored lines, and add Scor-Tape as shown below.




 Remove the adhesive backing on the tape and adhere. Turn it over to the right side. It should now look like this.
 
 
 Add additional Scor-Tape to the center of the folds and adhere strips of clear acetate in varying lengths.

 Adhere center folds to "sandwich" the acetate between them.  Then glue the inside layer to the card base. Attach two die-cut balloons back to back to each acetate strip. Tie a bit of string to each, hanging freely. Add additional papers and finish
card as desired.

Clever card. I like making cards that "do" something rather than the usual flat card.

I have always wondered how to make a pop-up card but was intimidated by how difficult I thought it would be! Thanks for helping me to understand how simple it is so I can finally make them myself!
