Here's the full video tutorial for this card:
My card measures 4.75" x 6" when closed. The front panel of the card is cut 2" shorter to allow the upper swing arm of the pop-up to be viewed when the card is closed. I rounded the corners with a 1/2" corner chomper. I used the new Safari Animals to create the giraffe, dressed as a mild-mannered cub reporter on the upper swing arm. I used the giraffe die to create the hair and clothes by cutting the body out of the appropriate color for hair, jacket, shirt and then snipping sections into the proper shapes. The collar and buttons are drawn on with a black pen. I added a pair of glasses from Tiny Accessories 1. The "you" die comes included in the Pop 'n Swap die set as does the heart. The "thank" is made using a Dymo label maker.
As the card opens the mild-mannered cub reporter starts to lower behind the pop-up rectangle while the other arm swings out from the bottom. Once again I used the "you" from the die set along with a label maker to create the greeting. The hearts and rectangles come included in the Pop 'n Swap.
Once the card is fully open the cub reporter is completely hidden and SuperGiraffe has appeared. I used the cape and mask from Tiny Accessories 2 and a tiny star from the Paper Frames Pop-up to dress the giraffe as a superhero. The patterned paper is an older piece of Basic Grey paper from my stash.
