Lawn Fawn's Platform Pop Up with inserted Magic Iris, Tweet Surprise Card


Can I say I should have tried this sooner?! It was so much easier than I thought it was going to go. Keep in mind I'm super familiar with both the Platform Pop-up and the Magic Iris interactives from Lawn Fawn, so that helps. So one on one of my videos asked me to do the Platform Pop-up with the magic iris. I was kinda stumped as to what to actually do with it... so I never put much thought on getting them to work together.
Low and behold the thought resurfaced after seeing some really cute Snow Globe add-on cards...not even using the Magic Iris with them, but it gave me pause to think about adding it to the platform pop up again. Add in a few days in the drivers seat of the tractor and more time to think than one over thinker really needs... I was able to trouble shoot the possible interaction road blocks and then I had to try it. I wasn't exactly sure where I was going decorating wise until after I had the blank canvas together, now I have a few more ideas I'd like to try with this one. It's like a paper Snow Globe that is mailable. I love the possibilities.  

There are 2 separate videos. One for the base in real time to help you build it and then a sped up version of the build with decorating to get the completed card.  Visit me on YouTube or Instagram with any questions you may have. (I don't tend to see them here on the blog until weeks later, I can only keep up with so many things.)
