Fold It, Pop It, Flip It, Zip It

I recently took an interactive card class taught by Julie Ebersole.  It was fantastic.  She is an incredible teacher and I learned so many great techniques that I had always thought would be much too time consuming. 

Here are some of the cards I created:

The umbrella lifts to reveal a message ("Feel Better")

A shadow box card.  This lays flat to mail but pops up to reveal multi-dimensional embellishments.
This is a buckle card.  The middle element flip around to reveal a sentiment or image on the back.  I've listed this one here in the shop.

A zipper card.  When the tab to the right is pulled a hidden message is revealed ("You're one of a kind!")

I also learned how to make scratch-off (you know...with the grey stuff that you rub off with a penny), honeycomb pop-up, spinner, marquee, and view master cards (and a couple more).  Lots of fun and talk about papery potential?  Get outta here!

If you enjoy making cards I highly recommend Julie Ebersole as a teacher.  Good stuff.
