Vintage French Gas Station Pop Up Card

This vintage French gas station paper model makes a fun pop up card. Maybe for "Have a great trip!" or "Life is a journey, not a destination!"

The original graphics were on a blog post by Toto which has been taken down. This card is based on the cleaned up version from Papermau.

I added and subtracted here and there--a few tabs, some more roof, cut off the sides of the building and added some pop up boxes and so forth.

Tutorial is here.

Carol, I wanted you to know that the Yacht Father's Day card I completed yesterday turned out beautifully. Thanks very much for the excellent directions. I know the card will be well received. I am looking forward to the Vintage French Gas Station directions to try my hand at that. Your site is my favorite for card making!

Hello, Carol,

Many thanks to talk about Papermau, it is very kind of you!

Let me know when you make the model available, so I will post it, ok?

I already post some of your nice projects at Papermau, with the deserved credits, of course. You are very creative!

sorry by the bad english and greetings from Brazil! :)
