My First Pop Up Card

Just want to say Thank You..for everyones get well wishes. Reading your comments really touched my heart and helped me have a speedy recovery. I don't think I've ever been that sick in my life. I did not come out of bed until Monday when I went back to work. Can't believe the flu took such a toll on me.

Now that the weekend is here, I finally got to play with my Big Shot Pro...Yeah !!!! and made my very first Pop-Up card... Took a few tries since everything is trial and error right now. Try #1 I used the same paper as the face of the card but since I didn't put the crease pad in, it ripped. Since it was my last piece.. had to go with plain red..Next one, I'll try to go fancier. I used this adorable Sugar Plum that I purchased last year and finally inked up, I cut the top of her cart so that I could place the hearts in it. The hearts were cut with a spellbinder die as was the word love that is in the inside of the card.

The arrow is a Sizzix die, the flowers Primsa, the butterfly a MS punch, and I placed these roses in the center of the flowers that I found at a local craft store.

and finally the inside of the card....

Ta Da!!!!

COOL card Debbie ... love your hearts theme and the inside is fabulous! Definately very Ta Da!

(I'd love to be able to make gorgeous romantic cards like yours, but I'm afraid I must be lovey-dovey-challenged!! Poor Greg always ends up with something quite plain!)
