Window Card with Pop-up for RRCB 193

 Hello all!  I love a good fun fold design and this one is easy to create AND impressive too!

This is a window card with a fun pop-up element on the inside.  The stamp set used is an oldie but a goodie - Illuminated Christmas (2018).  You can re-create this card using any small image you have that will fit inside the circle!

Here's the inside.  The card base is a standard A2 size cut from Very Vanilla Thick cardstock - 8-1/2 x 5-1/2, scored on the long side at 4-1/4".  The inside is a separate piece of Very Vanilla regular weight cardstock, 8" x 5-1/4", scored at 4" & 6".  It's folded into a Z-fold and adhered inside the card base only on the largest 5-1/4" x 4" section.

There's a piece of designer series paper 5-1/4" x 1-3/4" adhered to the center section of the Z-fold that coordinates with the front of the card.  I used a beautiful retired paper called Brightly Gleaming that has copper accents.  

The circle on the card front is die-cut after the designer paper is attached.  I used a 2-3/8" circle die, but yours could be a little larger or smaller.  Whatever image you choose to place inside the circle should be stamped on another piece of cardstock and die-cut using the same circle die.  Spread liquid glue on the area shown in the photo and position your image inside the circle (while the card is closed - as shown here).  Hold in place for 30 seconds while the glue dries.  

I also cut a slightly larger circle with the middle cut out to create a frame for the three Wise Men image.  The focal image is heat-embossed with copper.  This card uses just 3 colors -Very Vanilla, Night of Navy and Copper.  Clean and simple!  

As this card uses an older stamp set, I'm sharing at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.  Love the idea of a challenge created specifically to use old favorites!

Here are the Stampin' Up! products I used on this card that are still available for purchase.  Remember, the Illuminated Christmas stamp set and Brightly Gleaming DSP are retired, but you can re-create this fun fold using the stamps you own.  What's in your stash?
