Welcome to Tune in Tuesday with Pop-up Cards.  What fun to create and work with moveable cards.  First I will show you pictures of how to create the pop up.  To make a simple pop-up card, cut 2 slits on the fold of the card for each pop up you wish to create.  The deeper you cut, the farther away from the card it will pop out.  You can make several pop ups of equal distance or vary them.  It depends on what you want to pop up.  Here is a picture of two pop ups that are equal.

Next you fold the slits to the inside and crease them.

Turn the card over and your pop ups will look like this.  You can attach stamped images or other elements to the pop ups to make them come up when the card is opened.  This piece should be adhered to the inside of your base card.  You will need to decorate the front and inside of your card.

I've chosen the stamp set T3290 Girls Day Out for my card.  The sayings are from T3334 Joyful Notes and the wallpaper in the background (inside) is from T2672 Salsa Flowers.  On the front of the card I stamped the saying on a circle cut with Spellbinders Nestabilites Standard Circle Lg and placed it on another Spellbinders Nestablities Big Scalloped Ovals Lg.  The paper collection is Maggie SWIC and also Maggie cardstock.  I used stick-on gemstones for accent.  Inside the card I used Desert Marigold Bazzill cardstock and T3344 Window Box Wonder.  I again used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Big Scalloped Ovals Lg. to create a rug for the room.  The images are all colored with Copic markers.

Inside the card, the scene pops up when opened.

From an angle you can see the cut out portion that pops the card out.
