WINNER Pop-up Scrapbook card...

 This is the finished card for a class I will be teaching on Pop-ups.  First let me give credit to Sandi Genovese who was the inspiration for my version of this card. Second, I have to apologize for the out of focus photography.  Because of the pop-ups, I was able to get part of the card in focus, and then everything else was OUT of focus.  I don't have a clue how to make that really work when I am doing close up photography. Also, the angle makes some of the layers look crooked... and I swear, they aren't!

With all that out of the way - the cover is decorated with layers, a LOVE stamp with a heart brad in the O, Candi buttons down the left, and finally a Belly Band to keep it closed.  The spine of the cover is a good 1/4 inch wide to accommodate the bulk of the contents - you can see that here:.
 These next three pictures are the inside pages (held open by a wooden easel leg!)
  All the pop-ups were cut by hand.  

My favorite photo is of Aubry sitting with her legs crossed, sipping cocoa.
  The arrow is pointing to her - it is the one fancy cut.
That photo is "sitting" on one pop-up 
and is "leaning" against a smaller one behind her back.

In this final photo you can see some of the pop-up dimension.
