Bigtime Congrats

This was my first card using the Stampin' Up! Pop Up Look Here Die. It looks very complicated, but it is pretty simple once you have it cut out for you. You can even elaborate more on it and use designer series paper, colored cardstock, textured cardstock, or add on some punches of your own, but this is basic.

The outside has Nouveau Chic designer series paper and the inside has a piece of Walk in the Park designer series paper. This is for a friend's son, who has graduated high school and is going on to college. His party is this weekend. I thought that with two guy roommates, he could use a little something from an electronics store, so a gift card was in order.

Ingredients:
Cardstock: Whisper White, Textured Bermuda Bay, Basic Gray
Stamps: Congrats
Ink: Bermuda Bay
Accessories: Bigz XL Pop-up Look Here die, Small Star punch, sticky tape, Modern Label punch, Photo Corner punch

This is a snazzy creation, girl! I have been wanting to see this "live"! I love all your detail! My fav part is the corners punch, second to the inside! Awesome!

This is a fantastic die cut and card . . . I gave the pop up a try earlier this week and couldn't get the engineering down. You may need to give me a lesson! Hugs, Mary

Great job, Patti! At first glance I was like "Whoa! Where did that paper come from?", then I recognized it. Like Mary, I used this pop up once, and decided that I would wait until I got my engineering degree from MIT before tackling it again! You have inspired me to give it another try!

Love the paper you used for this card. Wow. I fear the engineering before I tackle mine too. You nailed it and love that its for a guy. There's hardly any guy cards around. Hugs,
