A Fold Back Pop Up Piggy Card

 I made my weekly FB Live video yesterday showing how to make a cute Fold Back Pop Up card. I used a cute stamp set I purchased at our crafters yard sale last Saturday by Sugar Pea Designs called This Little Piggy. I've not heard of this brand but this set is SOOOOO cute!

I'm very unhappy with FB Live and may start making my videos on YouTube first then uploading them to my FB page, Stampin Carol - Lots of Crafty Goodness.

Anyway, on to the card.

This is my card closed.  I started with a standard A2 size card then folded the front cover back to the edge. I cut 3 pieces of designer paper 2" x 5 3/8" and adhered them. I show this in my video.

Here you can see the 3 adhered panels. I cut a coordinating piece of designer paper to a 2" square, cut it on the diagonal and adhere them to the far right corners. The inside square is made of a 2 3/4" solid square and a 2 5/8" white square that I stamped.

I cut 3 more solid squares at 1 3/4" and white at 1 5/8". But 1 white I cut on the diagonal and 1 solid I scored on the diagonal and cut off 1/2 of a side. I adhered my stamped white on the corner with the diagonals even. Clear as mud?? You can see this piece in the 2nd photo above. Anyway, check out my video but I will tell you that the first 12 seconds of visual is black and you only get the audio. Then my words and mouth don't sync. At first I thought it was my internet but I think it's a FB issue.

I'm glad I had my MISTI as that was a big help to stamp the sentiments where I wanted them! And helped me keep them straight! I used a minimum of products making this. And it was relatively fast to make!
