I created this card for my Stamping Six Group gathering in February. I used the fabulous instructions from Splitcoaststampers to create this Sliding Pop-Up card. I like to try and teach a new technique or a new card style at my Stamping Six Gatherings. I used the new stamp set "Love Defined" from Stampin' Up. To make the tree different colours I first inked up my stamp with Pretty in Pink ink then coloured in the trunk of the tree with Chocolate Chip marker and a few of the hearts with a Real Red marker. Because the marker colours are so much darker then the ink on the stamp you can colour right over top with out change the colour or ruining the marker. I gave the stamp a bit of a "huff" then stamped it onto the Whisper White cardstock. I matted the image with Pretty in Pink cardstock and added 4 corners using the EK Success photo corner punch and some Real Red cardstock. The background of the card is made using Real Red cardstock and the "Many Hearts" embossing folder with the cuttlebug. The pattern paper is from a old Heidi Grace line, sorry I can't remember the name of it.
When you slide the pattern paper piece back the card stands on it's own like the photo above.
When closed the card lays flat and looks like the photo above.
