Cookie Monster Stand-up Pop-up Card

My husband works with a man who's 4 month old daughter needs surgery soon. Since there is little else we can do for the family I made this get well card.

One way that I try to expand my knowledge and skills of paper crafting is perusing YouTube and one of my favorite things to research is different card folds. I've made a LONG list of different folds I want to try and this free standing pop-up card is on it.

My base measures 5" x 11" and is scored at 1", 2 3/4", 3 3/4", 5 1/2", 7 1/4", 8 1/4" and 10". At the 5 1/2" score I cut a slot large enough for my tag and leaving around 1/2" on the sides. My tag measures 3" x  5".

To assemble the card place adhesive on both 1" end flaps on the side facing up. Slid your tag through the slot and line up the bottom edge with the crease. Now take the other side of your base and line it up. It's really very easy.

The card folds flat to easily fit inside an envelope.
