Karen Burniston is one of my artistic 'idols'. Her pop-up dies take a plain card and elevate it to something special. This card is almost a gift in itself! Check out the tutorial below to see how fun and easy it is to create.
die cut one edge as shown. This will be the front of your card.
Die cut a number of gears from black cardstock using the Gadget Gears and Mini Gears dies.
Die cut the pop-up mechanism from patterned cardstock using the Spinning 3-D die. Fold using the instructions on the package or the video tutorial from Karen Burniston found here.
I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial and are inspired to try a pop-up card or two (or three!).
