Since my daughter is having a birthday in a few weeks and I thought I would make her birthday card.  This is my first attempt at making a "Sliding Pop-up Card".  This was a lot of fun to make and looking forward to using this template again soon. The template can be found at Spiltcoaststamps: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/slidingpopupcard/  the tutorial is easy to follow and has  a You Tube podcast as well.  In my card I used the Cricut Sweet Treats cartridge, Cupcake6 and the Sizzix Dearly embossing folder in my design.  Let me know what you think by leaving a comment.
