Day Seventeen – Pop Card

I finished my special card today but am still keeping it under wraps for the reveal after it has arrived. (Updated photo, card has been received.) After hand writing a sentiment on the center panel, I assembled all components into the stand-up card. I also added a stringed banner with stamped letters. It was hard finding the right place for it without hiding the art or interfering with the card folding functions. Then I made a belly band to keep it contained in the envelope. I found the best way to handle this type of pop-up is by holding the outer left and right oval edges like a book and pulling them straight outwards. My card does fold up like an accordion for mailing.
