Double Z Pop Up Card

Today I would like to share this card that I really enjoyed making for my Daughter.

 Items Used:

Avery Elle - Clear Stamp Set 4"x 6"
Avery Elle Dies - Petals and Stems
Sue Wilson Dies - Arched window / Door
The Sentiment was perfect size but the circle was a little big for this card so I trimmed it.
Impression Obsession - Butterfly Set
Impression Obsession - Cat Set
Impression Obsession - Fence Border Die

I varied the measurements on mine to suit what I wanted to do.

Do you have trouble stamping a good impression?
The Misti is a marvellous tool to help with that.
However not everyone likes to pay the price.
I have an alternative.....

If you have access to an IKEA store they have a wonderful
photo frame that will do nicely.

The frame has hinges and a soft clear front that does the job perfectly and only cost $7 in Australia.
All you have to do is remove the protective plastic and tape the clear front down that
it doesn't move about.  Just use washi tape to hold your card stock in place while you stamp
and that will work perfectly.  I modified mine a little more and placed a sheet of perspex down
so I can use either washi tape or sticky tape.  I love it and you can stamp over and over again until
you have the desired affect.

Or you can go to more trouble and follow these instructions

I do hope I have helped to improve your stamping.

Crafty Hugs,

  1. Amazing card for your daughter, Carol. I love the design with the opening window. I'm fortunate enough to own a Tim Holtz version of the Misti, but a super tip using the Ikea photo frame for anyone who hasn't got a stamp platform. xx
