A Hero Arts Retailer


Bear Hugs

Hi, friends, Chark here today with a card that would fit right in with this month’s challenge of Make It Pop. I used some bumpy paper for the texture and added embossed star strips to the corner.



Inside, I made a very simple pop-up card by cutting two slits in a piece of cardstock and folding it outward. You can see in this picture what I mean.

pop up

I used dark blue cardstock and attached my greeting to the front piece.

It was pretty simple to make and adds a fun element to a card for kids…or for anyone!

Hope you’ll join in our December challenge here by Making it Pop and using a main Hero Arts product on your project!

Happy Wednesday!
