The Inside story

Are you getting a sense of deja vu....
You would be right if you did, because, indeed this is the front of the card I showed you in my last post. 
But wait... there is more, a lot more inside! In fact the main event IS the inside:

Now you need to it in action so I made this short video:

Making it is not especially difficult but you do need the die to make the mechanism (Photo Collage Pop-up by Karen Burniston) and you need to follow her instructions. It is however a bit fiddly as the pieces have to be placed so that they don't get into each other's way whilst moving as well as when the card is opened. 

To make it I used a kraft card base and all the papers are Graphic45. Mine is an old collection (Nutcraker sweet), but you can find the latest here, including some Christmas themed ones.
I took some photos too but November's natural light is not enough (immediately below) and flash photography isn't very flattering (2nd photo below).

I hope you are feeling inspired... You have until the end of the month to enter your Christmas makes into our Country View Challenge for the chance to win a £20 voucher for the Country View Craft shop.

Thanks for coming by,


  1. A quick catch up and a peek at your latest creations, been such a bad blogger this week, another really poorly doggy taking much of my time.
