Pop-Up Valentine Card

I have the privilege of being part of the Anna Griffin Design Team and working with her new products before launch - always striving to come up with new and different ideas to beautify our lives.  Part of the "after launch" fun begins for me in combining new products, pulling a bit from my "card kits" and paper collections stash and presenting you with a new way to wow your family and friends.  Order Anna's beautiful products directly from HSN and don't forget to watch her upcoming show on February 18th.  I also have a direct connection to her blog annagriffin.com - thanks so much and enjoy!     K

Pretty Pop-Up Valentine Card
Supplies - all Anna Griffin:
Pretty Pop-Up Card Making kit - card, inside pop-up base, oval mat and sentiment
Glitter Paper - Pink
Metallic Card Layers - Dark Pink
Collectors Dies
Sentiment - Juliet Paper Collection
Roses - from my "card kit" stash
General supplies - scoring board + tool, adhesive, scissors, foam squares, paper glue

From the pop-up card kit, use the pink frame card front and inside "pink lace" pop-up base pictured below:

Two of the Collectors dies were used in this project, the first to cut Pink Glitter Paper for the front then secure with foam squares.  Add sentiment of choice to center of glitter die with paper or hot glue -TIP - my experience has been that the double-face adhesives do not hold well on a glitter paper base.
                                      
Secure the pop-up base to the inside of the card - TIP - I use adhesive on the "fold" of each 3D strip as well as around the edges - this holds the pop-up strips firmly in place to the card to decorate.

The second Collectors Die is used to diecut Dark Pink Metallic Card Layers for the inside - SAVE the largest inside scrap pieces - they are the "floating hearts" on the top and bottom of the card. Trim away the bottom section of the inside die cut - as shown below - so it can fit nicely onto the back pop-up card section.  REMEMBER to place (with a bit of adhesive) your pop-up elements onto the base, close the card to be sure they fit inside, then open and secure them permanently in place. 

  SAVE the trimmed diecut part to place on the inside front section of the pop-up:

When you have positioned your 3D roses, you can gently score any areas that need to float to the bottom of the card, then secure in place:

Add your mat and sentiment to the middle pop-up base strip and the small "scrap hearts" from the inside diecut to the top back with foam squares and adhere flat to the bottom front of the card - voila - you are done and have a place to write, sign, seal and deliver to your favorite Valentine.
