Summer Smooches Pop-Up

I’ve been having lots of fun playing with different folds and cuts.  This little pop-up card uses the Summer Smooches designer series paper and the Bright Blossoms stamp set.  Both items will be in the 2012-13 Stampin’ Up!® catalog, and you’ll be able to purchase them – and more! – in April.

Here’s the card closed.

Here’s what it looks like “popped up”.

This was a fun one.  Here are the directions.

Cut a piece of card stock 12″ x 4″
Score the long side at 2″, 4″, 8″ and 10″
Score diagonally from 2″  from the top edge to the bottom center (6″) on both sides, and from the top center (6″) to 2″ on the bottom left and to 10″ on the bottom right right.  (See image below.)
All vertical score lines should be valley folds, and diagonal score lines should be mountain folds.
Decorate.

I think this would be cute with ribbon running under the front image and then tied on the side.  That way it would stay closed when it’s not being shown off.

Have fun making this!  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day.
