Wiper Card (yes, strange name)

This is a card I found the instructions and tutorial for from Splitcoaststampers. It originally was from Stampin Up. I had a hard time wrapping my head around the whole "wiper" card name. I would just call it a pop up maybe but the concept is really cool and has given me all kinds of ideas and variations. I started by using the scraps from my layout that I made yesterday for 52sketched52weeks. I really liked the color combination so this helped get me started. The instructions were fairly easy to follow. The pop up has to stay within a certain area to keep it from showing when the card is closed. Other than that you could do all kinds of things on the pop up. I have already started some other cards because once I got the basic measurements figured out it is a bunch easier to make multiple blank cards. The card base is 4 1/4 " X 8 1/2" . You get one card from a piece of 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock. This will fit in an 4" x 5" envelope. I not sure about the protocol on putting a link to the tutorial but if you go to and get it from their site, reference #172.
Hopefully Sam, my sweet husband, won't see my blog before I get this card mailed to him. He is in Alaska and I sure do miss him. I had gotten the owl stamps and the sentiment with him in mind. Hope you enjoy!
