A new addiction!

Addicted to pop up cards! I've left the greetings off these - will add/personalise when I need to. These really are great fun to make and they look a wee bit special!

Pop up card - first attempt

First time making a pop up card and I was surprised how easy the basic folding was.
Started with a piece of card - 13cm x 26cm
1. fold it in half - right sides together
2. open it out again - right side up - then fold the right edge in so that it is aligned to the centre fold
3. open it out again - right side down - fold the bottom left corner up so it's aligned to the fold you have just made
4. open it out again - right side down - repeat what you did in step 3 for the top left corner (this creates the centre folds
5. last step - right side down - cut away the two corners to create the diamond shape which will face you on the pop up
6. gently fold!

Still on the same theme of a white background. Yet another Penny Black stamp coloured with promarkers.

I am really loving using a white background - its not something I've really done in the past but doing the "all white" challenge has been really inspirational! I love this little hedgehog - he's coloured using promarkers.
