What do you think about this term?
While that term is more accurate, I think most people would remember 2 View (as its easier and more visual). Also, since that is the name as it was located, it might be less confusing adding another term to the card (unless Lenticular would refer to the larger size, stand alone type of card vs. the smaller attached-to-card 2 View card)... Just my opinion...

One tip: If you are going to add it to the top of your card (as opposed to making it like the Lenticular Pop Up Card Tutorial), I suggest you make your strips no larger than 1/2" wide, otherwise it will really stick up off the card (plus you'll need a lot more cardstock for the base). Just doing 4" x 6" pictures, you'll need more than 12" of cardstock (remember the folds; I added an additional 1/16" between each strip to allow for some picture placement room (its tricky to place adhesived paper in narrow areas!). Also, keep in mind that the only thing holding the finished project onto the card is just adhesive on the bottom of those valley folds (I suggest regular craft glue).

Good Luck with your project!
