BFF Surprise

Boy do I have a treat for you today! I have been wanting to make on of these cards for a really long time.

When I saw that banner from Oodles of Doodles I knew that now was the time to try a surprise pop up card!

Here is the surprise...they are really easy to make!!! Don't you love how the banner just hangs over the edge of the little card? I do! You might also note that the cute little card is a "School Days" journal stamp from the stamp set School Years. I didn't want the journal part but I loved the size of the journal box and the adorable little diagonal strips along the side. So I masked it and used it sideways and added that adorable little bicycle built for two...two best friends that is!

The card lays flat and fits into a regular envelope for easy mailing like you see here.

And one more view from the side.

You can find tutorials for these all over the web but I got mine from Splitcoast Stampers.

I hope you enjoyed this little surprise card today.
