It doesn't matter how old you are, 3 or 93! - a pop up card will make you smile! Some of the principles of making pop up cards can be applied to all sorts of designs - it's really entirely up to your own creativity how you choose to incorporate them into your card making designs. We've found three different types of pop up card, each has a slightly different approach to making the paper inside pop up - once you get to grips with the basics, you'll be coming up with lots of ideas of your own we're sure! Please share any of your own pop-up designs over on our facebook page, we'd love to see them!
