Christmas in July! For a 1-4-1 swap. I loved this pop up style I learnt from a big team meeting last month. The scans show open and closed- when it opens, the little tag pops up out of the card!
I had a hard time scanning this one. Also, I'm not sure if I have the right name for this style of card, maybe someone can correct me? I don't have directions, just took apart the card I made at the meeting. Maybe someone can help with that too?

Great card. Would love to know how it works so I can give it a try.

OK, here's some rough instructions.
Cut 2 pieces 7" x 41/4".
Score both at 1 1/2" and 2 1/4".
Cut an oblong 2"x 2 3/4". This is your pop up piece.
Decorate front as desired.
To assemble, fold the outer score in a valley fold, the inner score as a mountain fold (if that doesn't work, try it the other way round! I get my mountains and valleys confused! LOL!)
Adhere front to back at one end only (I did the right end), only stick as far as the first score.
Fold a corner of the pop up piece to the back. Put a piece of sticky strip on the folded part. The folded part will be to the back of the pop up piece.
Holding the pop up piece vertically (ie at right angles to the second score), back side down, place and stick the folded part about 1 1/2" down, lining it up evenly with the scored edge. The folded part will be at the bottom left of the piece at this stage.
Adhere the left side down the same as the right, gluing only as far as the first score.
Fold the card back on itself, following the score folds-it should bend on itself, making the card smaller.
Pull out the sides, and the pop up piece pops up! (I hope!)
Now stamp a corresponding image on the pop up piece, now you can see where it will show when it's popped up.
I hope you understand this, it's much easier to show than write out! I think these were done on the cruise. If that's right, maybe someone else can help with better instructions?
