Thursday Card of the Day, Corner Pop Up Cards

It's Technique Thursday at Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps
 I am featuring  Michael Strong's Cloisonne Flowers, large and mini
on two versions of Corner Pop Up cards.

Here you see a Corner Pop Up card where
the bottom part folds up diagonally and into the card when it closes.
I really liked Lisa Cursio's Corner Pop Up video tutorial.

Basically you cut your paper into an 8 x 8 inch square
score in half, then turn 1/4 and score in half again to get 4 quadrants.
Then some diagonal scoring and some cutting depending on the style of card you choose.
It's so much easier to see a video of the process.
So I would recommend you watch the videos and work along.

I need to sit in front of the computer and watch Lisa's video each time I make one of these.
If you start with an 8 inch square, the finished size of your card is 4 inches square.
You can start out with a 12 x 12 inch square which results in a 6 x 6 inch card.
You will be adding panels and embellishments to the squares
before finally put the card together.

I think these cards are so much fun!
I encourage you to give it a try, if you are like me and enjoy fancy fold cards!

My paper is from a 12 x 12 DCWV pad called Posh & Pink.
I'm on a mission to use up that paper! Have made 4 cards and a name frame with it.
There is still a ton of paper left!

I used a punch for scalloped circles and flowers,
a spellbinders die for the message portion,
gemstones, dimensional foam,
and Scrapbook Adhesives Crafty Power Tape
(double sided adhesive tape that comes in a roll and is easy to tear)

This Corner Pop Up card featuring Michael Strong's Mini Cloisonné Flower
 has has a pocket for a gift card, money or note.
I used Lisa's Corner Pop Up Gift Card Holder tutorial which I really liked!
You can find many Corner Pop Up card tutorials online.

 Used Versafine black onyx ink to stamp the flowers
which were then fussy cut and adhered with dimensional foam.
Cut my own leaves and punched some flowers and added some gemstones.

The right panel has to flip down for the card to close properly.
I've tried to show that in this photo.

I wrote my own sentiment on lined printed papers from the pad.

I chose to make this style because I wanted to add a gift of money.
You can see it would be great for a gift card and/or a note.

Thanks so much for visiting!

I have not seen this card design before. Nice job of layering texture on the front.
