I've had this trifold pop up greeting card sitting on the back burner for a long, long time. It just wasn't going anywhere!
This was as far as I had gotten with it, years ago.
I dragged it out last week and started messing about with it to make a print-and-cut, but I finally abandoned that.
It's boring, the colors are off, and I don't like that the white from the back of the card shows on the right-hand side.
It needed a border. It needed jazzier colors. It needed double sided cardstock.
I added lace around the edges and changed the size and tilt of the "valentine" heart to bring it out of hiding. Much better!
How to Make a Valentine Trifold Pop Up Card
--Two 12" x 6" sheets of cardstock, one for the lace and a double sided sheet for the card base.
--Three small pieces of paper or cardstock for the hearts
--Scraps to back the words
