Thanks JoAnn!!

This is called a Free Standing Pop-Up Card!! Isnt it just go-jous? Thanks soo much to JoAnn (SCS: jreks) for making this and sending it to me with a recent swap return!! It's just awesome and I can't wait to try this myself -- But I think I'm gonna wait to get a Scor Pal first -- maybe for my birthday in March? ;o)
Here is tis' from the side -- I want to try to clearly explain this to you from all dimensions!

Here it is folded down -- yes! You can mail these beauties!!

Ok, so for the deets! Here we go!

Cut cardstock in the following sizes:

11" x 4 1/4" piece A (main body of card)

5 1/4" x 2 1/2" piece B (main image)

2 1/2" x 1 1/2" piece C (front greeting)

Decorate piece "A". Turn over and score at 1", 2 3/4", 3 3/4", 5 1/2", 7 1/4", 8 1/4", 10". On the center line, (5 1/2") mark 3/4" from both sides. Cut a line 2 3/4" long between the two 3/4" marks.

Stamp your main image on piece "B". Be sure not to stamp on the bottom 1" which won't be seen.

On piece "A" mark the center on the 1" score line on both ends. On piece "B" mark the center for the bottom only. Thread the bottom of "B" through the center slot of "A". Align and glue the two center marks of "A" and "B" together with B in the center.

Stamp a greeting onto piece "C" and adhere to front of card. When finished, the card will slide up and down through the slot. It's flat for mailing, but free standing once its opened.

It's just soo sweet!! Get creative!! What different pop up designs can you create?

~TFL & Enjoy!~
