Tips & Tricks:

I kept the clean and simple outside but I went a little different on the inside.   For the inside I used the new Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits dies.  This is a very unique die for Stampin’ Up!.   Not only does it create the cut outs but it also creates an embossed image and the score lines.

When you are cutting the pop up image you will want to go ahead and score in the center of your cardstock.  You want to go ahead and score the cardstock because you will need the score line to line up the die.   The die has an arrow at the bottom that you may not notice, that’s what you are going to line up the score with.

Here’s what the card looks like opened.
