Today I have a little treat for you made with the Cats & Bats paper packet. This folding pop up card packs a lot of wow factor – no tricks!
I have to be honest, I’ve had the instructions for this card for about a year, but I was worried that there was too much measuring and I’d not be happy with the results. Sunday afternoon I cut all the pieces and sat down to watch the video one more time through each step I paused the video and followed the instructions. I was feeling some major intimidation, but once I got the mechanism to open and close properly on my first attempt I was a happy girl.
I decorated the front of my card by stamping the cob web from the cats & bats stamp set and adding a creepy spider from the Cricut Artbooking collection I popped it up with a little 3D foam tape and used my gold shimmer brush to give him a little sparkle. I kept the inside simple just lining the panels with B&T paper and adding pieces from the complements pack. On the last panel I cut down a PML card for the sentiment. One more use for those Picture My Life Cards!
