Simply Saturday mechanics: pop-up card

Welcome to our Simply Saturday's post. Gay has done wonders again with a pop-up bath tub ;)
I like pop-up cards, they are always a nice surprise when someone opens it. (although I must confess, I have never tried making one myself). 
So let's see how Gay made this beautiful stylish card. 

First I stamped and cut out the bath. The photos show how I gauged the size of the bath on the inside fold of the insert card. 

I cut two slits in the insert and scored the top line in both directions to help fold. I find when matching up the two cards it's easier to only uncover a small amount of the tape and this gives you room to move them about and get them in the right position.

Gay used

Kanban clear stamps Mocha Boudoir 
Judikins Diamond Glaze for the bubbles
Copics for colouring

See you next week
Have a great weekend
