Sometimes when I’m lying in bed not able to sleep, I come up with card ideas. This is card was hatched from those sleepless times when I’m creating cards instead of counting sheep. The following day I put my nighttime ideas into play in the Creative Treehouse. I just love how it turned out!
There are 2 videos ( part 1 and part 2) that walk you through how to make this card. Part one focuses on the front or outside of the card and part 2 focuses on the inside of the card including the pop-up mechanism. I’ll post the dimensions for the inside of the card but how to put it all together and which parts to glue where is too difficult to describe through only written words, so a visual/audio tutorial via YouTube is the best way to follow how to make this card.
