Pop up Punny Pals

Hello Crafty Peeps and Welcome back to DanYell Scraps!!! :)

Today I am going to show you how to create a trifold card where the images from the inside can be seen on the outside! This is C.A.S.E. from the talented Jennifer McGuire.

Today's card is featuring the super cute, Operation Smile™: Punny Pals. I want to take a moment to talk about this set....this stamps brings smiles to childrean around the world. When you purchase this stamp set, CTMH will donate $7 USD of the proceeds to Operation Smile™, a non-profit organization that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates for children around the world. You can read more about Operation Smile and what it stands for here --> OPERATION SMILE™

To recreate this card exactly you will need the coordinating thincut set for the above stamp set. These are marked as going soon, and won't be around much longer. 

I am a dog lover, so I choose to use the puppy for this Valentine's Day themed card! 

I found this to be a very simple card to create, and the best part, no waste! So for all you frugal card maker's this one is for you! 
Starting with an A2, or 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base, using the coordinating thincut for the puppy, I cut (on the front panel only) three puppies. 
Using the three cut outs, I stamped my puppy image on each one, and used my ShinHan markers, Clay, Mahogany, and Pastel Peach to create the different shades of brown on each puppy. I fussy cut the white board off of each puppy. 

For the front of the card, I stamped "you make my heart happy" from the Happy Heart stamp set A1192, in versamark ink, and added black embossing powder. Because Black embossing powder is not very forgiving, little specks (yes i used a static tool hehehe) were everywhere. That encouraged me to work with this little curve ball. I grabbed mt colored pencils, and a water-brush, and flicked "paint" splatters over the front. Side note, the card front was open so the splatter did not get on the inside from the three openings I created in the beginning. 
From the same stamp set, two hearts were added. Each was stamped in the Color of the Year Bashful pigment ink, and heat embossed in clear embossing powder. I actually waited for them to cool/dry, and stamped and added clear embossing powder two more times. It gave such a nice raised glossy image. Reminded me of those puffy stickers from when I was a kid. 

So for the inside, remember when I told I fussy cut the white away from the image in the beginning? Here is why, I will close my card, and add my puppy to the inside using the those "windows" as guides. If I left the white board around the puppies, the card would never open and close without catching on the images. I centered each image in the window, and added 3D foam tape to the back of each one, so when the card is closed they are popped up through the front of the card.
