Postcard Perfect Blog Hop

Welcome to the Postcard Perfect blog hop, this collection is a special release for National Scrapbook Month. If you arrived here from Wendy's blog   you are in the right place. If you arrived here by chance I hope you see something you like, to continue the hop click on the link at the end of this post.

This collection is lovely perfect for holiday photos, especially those from a beach holiday. The stamp set is gorgeous.

I have been working on my holiday to the Bahamas in 2015 and this collection worked beautifully with these photos.

I came across a video on You Tube for this great pop up card that only uses one piece of cardstock and it is so easy to make. I have used the lovely flowers from the stamp set and the Happy Birthday thin cut to decorate the card. I added a few bitty sparkles to the center of the flowers, which I coloured with the Shin Han markers.

You use a piece of cardstock that is 5.5" x 4.25" make a pencil mark along the 4.25" side at 2.75"  from one edge to the other. Then make marks with a pencil at 1.25" to the center pencil line, on both edges of one side of the 5.5" edge. Then make a mark at 2.75" (the middle point) on the other side. Score along the line between the 2 marks from the edge. Cut along the marks on both edges to the center point, as shown in the photo below.  Add a strip of cardstock .75" x 4" to the front of the card to stabilize it and add the extra decorations.  You need to watch the video here that explains how to fold the card to make the pop up.
