21 Oct Teddy Bear Pop Up Card: Valentines day, Birthday, Christmas, Baby Shower Variations
I've been so busy lately, so it took me a while to get these popup cards finished. I kept coming up with variations for this card. Here are variations for a Valentine's day, birthday, Christmas and baby shower card. There could be many more by adding some additional clip art. You can imagine making a graduation hat, adding flowers, adding sports logos, sports equipment…the list goes on. I could have been making variations for weeks, but I figure I'd stop with these 4. I made two mechanical versions of this card: one using 2 sheets of paper and one using 3. If you like the elegant style of making the actual pop-up with one sheet, then you can use the 2 sheet version. The second sheet is the card backing. You can also use this version if you have many cards to make since it's a tad easier to assemble. The birthday and baby shower card are made with 2 sheets, shown below. The second version uses 2 sheets for the inside card. You would want to use this version if you want to use different colors for the bear and the background. This will provide more contrast in color between the bear and the background. If you want to make a brown bear, then you can have him sit on different colors other than a brown background. The Valentine's day and Christmas card are made with 3 sheets. Here is what the cards look like:
I really like this card and feel like it's one of my most versatile cards. I recently upgraded to Windows 7 so my video editing software didn't work. It took me some time to find a new piece of software and learn how to use it. Here are individual videos of each of the cards:
