WRITTEN INSTRUCTIONS FOR FREE-STANDING POP UP CARD
You will need:
11" X 4 1/2" piece of card stock...piece A (main body of card)
5 1/4" X 2 1/2" piece of card stock...piece B (message card)
2 1/2" X 1 1/2" piece of card stock...piece C (front greeting card)
Decorate the "A" piece of card stock.
Turn "A" over and with a pencil, lightly mark, score and fold to make lines 1", 2 3/4",3 3/4", 5 1/2",7 1/4", 8 1/4", 10".
On the center line (5 1/2" line) mark in 3/4" on both sides.
With a razor knife cut a line 2 3/4" long between the two 3/4" marks.
Take card stock piece "B" and stamp the message you want for your card, on one side.
Be sure not to stamp on the bottom 1"(This area will be inside the card and won't be seen.)
On piece "A" mark a bottom center line from the 1" score line down on both ends.
On piece "B" mark the bottom center line for the bottom only.
Thread the message area of "B" through the center slot of "A".
Align and glue the two centers marks of "A" and "B" together (like a sandwich with B being the center).

It will help if you look at the diagrams.
When you are finished...your card will slide up and down through the slot. Flat for mailing and Free standing once it is opened.

I think I have the instructions somewhere, but I haven't made any yet. I do believe I will have to try that card soon! I DID want to say that I had a peek at your gallery and I really enjoy the cards you've made. I like your style!
I'm not a complete idiot ~ some of my parts are missing!
Joelyn - you may consider posting the instructions to this thread. The me toos can get draining on ya!
I am still learning all the things with the computer and I would not say I am a fast learner either.
If you wouldn't mind...I could send them to you and you could post them. Do you know how to do that?
I tried it an love it. My problem was I stamped the whole card and when I inserted teh little piece and glued it I was so excited that I didn't notice that the stamps on the main card were upside down. Oh well on to more. This time I will be careful.
