Christmas Pop Out Frame or Tunnel Card Project Sheet


It's been quite a while since I posted on this blog, but being back here is like sitting down with an old friend -- we just pick up where we left off. 

Today, I want to share a card tutorial with you, if you don't mind. I write these for every card we do in my Stampin' Up! workshops, and it seems a waste to share them with only a small number of people. I also feel like I've gotten tremendous support and inspiration from the Stampin' Up! community, so posting a tutorial is one way of giving back. 

I hope you enjoy making this card. It's much easier than it looks, and, as with all technique cards, you can adapt this in dozens of ways to suit the occasion you're celebrating. You can also, of course, change the shape of the aperture inside the card -- you could use the Sunburst framelits, or a circle, or any of the labels that Stampin' Up! has to choose from.

I didn't create the technique, but these measurements and dimensions are what I came up with on my own, as is the design of the card. Feel free to CASE it, but please don't sell it without changing it and making it your own.
