Natures Nest

I've been having another play with my Stampin Up Natures Nest stamp set and this time decided to have a go at a 'wiper' card (so called because the little pop-up comes up a bit like a windscreen wiper when the card is pulled gently from each end). I'm not a particular fan of three dimensional cards but I do like to try different things from time to time, although I find that people are often reluctant to buy these cards because they cost more to post and also there is often no insert on which to write a message.

Window Card

I have used some stamps from a new set from Stampin Up called Natures Nest to make this card and also used a fern stamp from the Touch of Nature set. The image is set into a recessed window which makes the card quite deep so I had to work out some measurements to make a box envelope to fit as I only have the old stype of enveloper board without the extra ridge for making boxy ones. Something else to go on my wish list!
