What’s more fun than receiving a hand-stamped card? Easy! Getting a hand-stamped card that MOVES! We love engineering at our house. When my daughter was 5 she was making her own layered cards that had pop-ups. Her 1st grade valentines had a springy heart tucked inside. So here’s a card inspired by her love of engineering. And I promise – it’s an EASY card to make. Or at least it’s easy with the simple directions that I’m sharing here!
The stamp set is Endless Wishes (138796) but obviously any set will work. This card happens to be one that is included with my Stamps in the Mail Club during August (learn more). So if you’d like to have all your supplies prepared for you, you can get the August kit and everything will arrive at your doorstep – stamps, ink, pre-cut card stock and embellishments, along with printed instructions.
Or looking for MORE fun engineered card ideas? Here is a selection of cards that move from my past blog posts.
In addition to the “how to” video tutorial on pop-up cards with the Word Window Punch (119857), you’ll find that this video includes another helpful lesson: how to use the masking technique to turn tiny images into a larger focal point for your cards and projects. This is definitely a useful technique when you have a stamp set full of small stamps!
Here’s the card all laid out for you – be sure to pin the graphic so you’ll be able to find the directions later. If you’d like to request a kit, be sure to visit my Stamps in the Mail Club page.
