Okay, so what is a standing card? Its a card that stands on its own. I’ve also heard it called a pop-up card, a free standing card, or even a surprise card.
Whatever you call it, I absolutely adore this way of making a card! It looks so impressive with very little work on your part – a winner every time in my book!
I am *such* a visual learner, so I used the fabulous free standing card tutorial from Split Coast Stampers. Why reinvent the wheel when I can use that time to create?
I’ll be sharing 2 cards I made using that tutorial. This one is the first one I ever made, so you know it’s easy. I made it to celebrate my son’s 13th birthday. (How on earth did I get old enough to have a teenager?? Impossible!!) Anyway, I used the retired (and hard to find) CTMH set "Rock-n-Roll". I LOVE that set!
He really loved receiving this card, so it was well worth my puny effort. And I really love him, so you know, it all balances out.
Thanks for stopping by! Go alter something!
