Hi everyone, Gabriela here today with a way to showcase your paper patterns and have some fun with stamps or die cuts.  This card is a pop-up inside and has a decorative band holding it closed.

I am using the Winter Bliss collection and I started by cutting my paper into pieces. I used one 12" x 1" strip, one 5.5" x 4.25" rectangle, a 3" x 3" square and an 8" x 5.5" rectangle. I used a plain white card base.

I stamped my images using my amazing Stamp Perfect tool and used a pop-up die for the inside of the card.

Once I had everything cut out, I adhered my die cuts and stamped the sentiment.
The outside of the card was put together by using a stamp runner on the 5.5" x 4.25" piece and adhering that to the card base. Then the 3" square was stuck on top of that.
Finally, the 12" x 1" strip is what will hold the card closed, it's just a decorative touch.  Place the strip on the front of the card.
Turn the card over.
Fold each edge of the strip towards the center of the card.
Then adhere the ends together to make a band. The finished card will have a very nice look and a fun pop-up inside.

This card is motivational, but any occasion will work; Winter Bliss is my favorite collection right now, but you can use any of the beautiful Quick Quotes collections to make a project like this.  I hope you enjoyed this project and thanks for stopping by.

I have been continuing through the challenge and here are this week's updates.  


My first spinner card

My first spinner card

This was created by using some patterned paper, my nesting circle dies, a hello die, and a Stampin' Up stamp. I colored the image using Copics and then drew a "back" of the image with a Copic Multiliner. 


A window card

I made this card with a coordinating Stamp and Die set from Stampin' Up.  I used a piece of acetate for "glass" in the window, I colored the images in Copics and did the background with Distress Ink.

Tomorrow I will be featuring the Chiffon Collection from QuickQoutes, I'll be showing how to make a Box Card. Happy Crafting!
