Wagon Pop-Up Card

Okay, I've made a second card with the Everyday Pop-Up Cards cartridge, and I think I'm starting to get the hang of it. For the front of my card, I cut the phrase and all of its layers (except for the shadow) at 2.75".

If you have seen the handbook for this cartridge, my wagon attaches to the card in the same way as the airplane in the sample project. It's different from the flowerbox I used in this post, because it is free standing and not attached to the front side of the card. Here is how it looks with a bird's eye view.

I think the secret to making these pop-ups look good is using layers with different patterns and colors. Unfortunately, this takes a bit of work on the Gypsy or Design Studio. The main cuts on each handbook page do not match the sizes for the pop-ups. For my card, I cut my pop-up at 4". On my Gypsy, I was able to line up the different wagon layer cuts on top of the pop-up to determine the correct size. Unfortunately, I didn't save those sizes for you. For the wheels, I cut circles from Mini Monograms, again lining them up to determine sizing. After gluing them to the pop-up, I trimmed the bottom off of each circle in order to glue the pop-up to the card.
