ATS Wednesday Challenge: Pop-Up Cards

Happy Wednesday! Today's ATS Wednesday Challenge is to make a pop-up card. There are lots of ways to make a pop-up card -- Jen has links to some of the SCS pop-up tutorials on the challenge post HERE.

I used the C.C. Designs sets Spooky Spooky Spooky for the card front and Spooky Scene for the inside. The inside sentiment is from Sugarplum Halloween. I used my Circle Nestabilities for the image and matting. I colored with Copics and sponged around the white circles with More Mustard ink.


Here's the inside of the card. This is probably the easiest way to make a pop-up! Starting from the card fold, I cut two slits about 1" long. I opened the card and pushed the tab inward. I glued Baby Ghost below the fold, and he stands up when the card is opened!

Play along with the challenge and try a pop-up card! You can find other samples on the ATS Blog and in the Wednesday Challenge section of the ATS Gallery. If you upload a card for the challenge, use keyword ATSDTC19.

Guess what? Tomorrow Christine is having a special release of a new C.C. Designs set -- it's an adorable set full of bubbly fun!! I hope you'll stop back to see it! Thanks so much for the visit today -- I always love hearing from you! Have a great day! :)
