This pop up card, is window (or flat box) style, a mechanism well used by Tracy Chong and Willem Boning.

The scherenschnitte tree pattern is from paper cutters.

Updated 2015:  I finally dusted this file off and took the time to clean up and connect all the little lines segments.  This one should cut much, much better than the old file.
