I mentioned on Social Media that I recently achieved a goal of 25,000 YouTube subscribers! Whoo hoo! Thanks, all. At the end of this post are details about a Giveaway.
To celebrate, here's a new video tutorial for combining the Flower Pot Pop Stand die set plus the Heart Pivot Card decorator dies to make a pop-up heart-filled flower pot with extra pop-up hearts attached to the front of the flower pot.
The patterned papers I used are older designs from My Mind's Eye from "The Sweetest Thing" collection, but any patterned papers could be used in this design. The card measures 5" x 6" in the closed position and can be mailed in an A7 (5x7) envelope. The front decoration features an embossed border strip (Stampin' Up! embossing folder), two hearts from the Heart Pivot Card set with vines from the Flower Pot Pop Stand set, and a metal key from my stash.
As the card is opened the flower pot starts to raise and expand.
Once open, the pop-up sculpture is revealed, including extra heart pop-ups built on the front of the pot so they, too, will pop-up. The "love" is an older script die (Stampin' Up!) from my stash.
The video shows a technique for cutting notches in the small hearts to be able to make the interlocking hearts to go in the flower pot.
This side view shows the "feet" that I added to the back of the large decorator hearts to turn them into pop-up hearts for the front of the flower pot. This technique is explained in the video.
This card would be suitable for many occasions, including Valentines Day, Anniversary, Mother's Day, Birthday, Thanks, Love and Thinking of You.
