Graduation Pop Up!!!

Hello and Happy Tuesday Everyone!!!
I'm soooo super excited today! Yesterday
my Sister Mi-Mi came to visit me! She brought
her lovely daughter and her Granddaughter! I knew
they were coming but my Mom didn't.... I told them
not to tell her so we could surprise her! And BOY was
she SURPRISED! LOL They came down for my oldest
sons graduation.... My baby graduates tomorrow!
Soooo I'm gonna post his Graduation Card for ya!
Don't worry he doesn't look at our blog anyway!
I'm also excited because I made a POP UP card!
I've been wanting to make one for awhile now...
And I sat down the other night and designed a
card in my design studio... but couldn't figure out how to
make one until I used good ole' GOOGLE SEARCH! Found
a blog with a video to make one... Sooo here is my Card! :o)

 This is to show you the Acetate I used to help POP UP

Sorry about the photo quality... I finished this card
at 2am and took the photo's shortly afterwards...
I prefer to take photo's during the day.... but wanted
to have this posted in a timely manner... :o)
Here is the name of the lovely lady who
made the video.... Valita Click on here name and it
will take you straight to her video that showed me
how to use this method... It was fairly easy to do and
will work with anything... :o) She also makes lots, & lots
of other crafty type folds, boxes, etc.

hope my son likes it as well! :o)

I like that the stitching done with the white pen really add character to the hats being tossed in the air! That's a new thing that I've never seen before. And it really is a moment to be remembered since it's what everyone wants to do, but when it comes time to actually do it, it's a lot harder than it seems! Haha, don't want to get knocked in the head by a flying cap!
