In March, our chosen technique was Pop-Up Cards. I chose the Congratulations category as my theme, and specifically congratulations on a new baby. As I tend to do, I agonized and over analyzed the whole process. I took instruction and inspiration for the mechanism of the pop-up from watching Jennifer McGuire videos on YouTube. She is definitely a wealth of knowledge.
I used Unity Stamp Company’s Criss Cross Hearts background stamp, and stamped it in VersaMark ink and used white embossing powder. I then used a soft green Distress Ink and ink blended over the heat embossed background.
Next I worked on my pop-up image. I used Unity Stamp Company’s New to the Crew set, stamping the onesie twice so that my pop-up would have a finished image on the front and the back. I stamped the “Bundle of Joy” sentiment from the kit on the front of the onesie and colored in the accent on the banding of the onesie for both sides.
Next I cut out an oval for the front of the card from Gina K Designs Master Layout 1 and stamped a congratulations sentiment from Gina K Designs Reasons to Celebrate.
And the final product turned out even better than I imagined!

Great ink blended background! Great color! Love the pop up too!
This is just adorable and that little onesie couldn’t be cuter.
Love that Unity background, and it’s perfect for a baby card.
I have a different type of blog, but if you need help figuring something out, let me know.
We need to schedule a play date too 🙂
