pop-up book card

Hello everyone,

Bright and sunny Monday morning and I am back with a post which is thankfully not an order and not part of any swap.. I realized lately all my creations were just that....

I sat down to make a pop-up book card which I had come across on Pinterest ( love to browse through there) and It was really challenging for me for it required straight line cutting using your craft knife ( I suck at cutting using the knife... the cutting knife and me are not the best of friends but nevertheless we have called for a temporary truce for this project.. :p)

It took me the entire day yesterday to finish it and well in the end it was really worth it... every element is how I wanted it to be... I have kept it really simple and just showcasing the limited supplies I have used on this project...

So enough rambling.. Will just show the pics...

I loved making this one... and it's a huge one... 6x6 in size... and there was a lot of measuring and hand-cutting involved... I just realized how difficult it is to do a pop-up mechanism and my very dear blogger pal Dr.Sonia does it with such panache and ease.. I now truly realize the effort that goes into making it.. Hats off to you Doc..!!

Supplies used:- 
Cs=> Locally purchased and brustro
PPs=> DCWV and Echo Park
Stamps=> Penny black party time and fiskars for sentiment
Ink=> Unity Noir
Tea Dye distress ink
