Thanks A Bunch Pop-Up Card

Hi it's Lisa here with a fun tutorial to share.  I have seen some truly amazing cards lately and here is my version/tutorial of my first pop-up slider card. Love it!

Instructions:
First, take a 6 x 12 inch cardstock of plain cardstock and a matching patterned paper.
Fold the 6 x 12 inch half...then cut out a 3 x 3 inch square in the center.
Next cut out a 4 inch wood grain paper or you can stamp it wood grain and cut out a 2.5 inch square out of the center of the wood. make two 1/4 inch wood panes.
Cut a piece of 3 x 3 inch transparency and place on the back of the window then add the window panes on top of that...like a sandwhich.
Add a 2 inch oval and scallop around with another piece of cardstock.
Embellish with ribbons for the curtains.


The inside I used Walk In My Garden Cricut Cartridge, I made 5 sets of the tulips and leftover scraps for the blue, yellow and white flower tops. The flower pot base is a 3 inch rectangle with a 1/2 inch cut off the top...also used Martha Stewart punch for the arches on the top of the flower pot. Extra tip: Don't forget to make the backside of the flower pot and colored flowers too. For a finished 3D effect when it pops up!



The patterned paper is 6 x 6 and BEFORE you tack it down cut out the slider part first.
There are some great tutorials out there on how to make the slider. Here is one by Dawn's Stamping Thoughts that is great: click here for link to video...thank you! I modified my measurements for my card...I cut mine at 2 inches and 4 inches and 3 inches high....basically, in the center of the card so that you could see the flowers through the window when the card is laying flat. The inside slider is the same green to match and I punched a hole in the bottom and added ribbon.
The kids are planning to sign the card on the slider part later....


Hope you enjoyed looking and try your first pop up slider card too! Super fun!
