Mechanical cards, they work, move and such like!

Hi folks, I'm back with a new card today, On the Craft Barn Blog this week we have been highlighting cards that have a mechanical movement of some kind, mine is very simple.
There are simple step by step pictures on the blog that show how I got the pop up to work. It must be simple if I did it LOL
Here is the front of the card
Stamps are by KanBan and called Mocha Boudoir, very much fun mmm I think that all you need is chocolate and maybe a candle LOL Relaxing bath mmmmmmm Have a great weekend, Gay x

Wow Gay - this is FAB-U-LUS! Love love love the chic Kanban stamps - the bath is a perfect choice for a pop-up design. Gorgeous shade of pink, and the bubbles finish off the whole thing beautifully.
Have a lovely weekend - hugs, Sylvia xxx

What fun! I used to make pop-up cards with the kids in my classroom, but never thought to do it on my own cards. I love this, and that bubble bath looks so enticing. :) Ann
