Just Add Ink #343 | Pop-Up/Interactive Blog Hop

Hello and welcome back to Just Add Ink for 2017. We are so looking forward to getting back into sharing our creations with you and inspiring you for each challenge every week.

We thought we would start of the year with a bang and have a big blog hop for you all with the theme of Pop-Up/Interactive.

There a loads of fabulous products out there in the market at the moment for Pop up and interactive cards and aren't they all amazing!!

I've actually gone with a card that I've seen floating around Pinterest for a while called the Twist and Pop card. It looks tricky but really it isn't. Probably the most tricky part about it is to trying to photograph it. That was hard. Hopefully my pictures will show you how it works.

And again I've gone with a Valentines Day theme creation. Loving the Sealed with Love stamp set and the super cute Framelits, Love Notes.

The front of the card looks like any other card from the front. Here I've used my favourite pattern from the Sending Love DSP stack. Those little hearts are so very gorgeous but now I've used them all up finishing this creation. Insert sad face here! 

I embellished the front with a Double lot of the Stitched Shapes Framelits. Actually what happened is I die cut the larger circle first and thought it was too big for the teeny tiny, very cute envelope and then cut the next sized circle from the larger circle. I then left the smaller one in the larger one and liked the look of the double 'stitching' and left it like that.

Upon opening that's when this card goes from being a normal card to a 'Twist and Pop' card. The mechanics of the card make it so that the 'pop' up middle section lies flat inside when the card is closed and then as you open it the middle section twists and pops open.

I've decorated the inside with more of the cute heart Sending Love DSP stack and some Pool Party Stitched Shapes Squares.

And then its all finished off with one of the heart images from Sealed with Love stamp set and die cut with the Love Notes Framelits. These can be 'Popped' up too as the die doesn't cut the top and the bottom part where the outline meets the heart. So gorgeous!!!

I found the tutorial for this card on Pinterest so if you want to make it too, check it out here.

Next on to my fabulous friend, Chloe Evans. Love her and love her creations!
