Halloween Pop Stand Card

Good morning friends

I confess that this card has been done for months. It was the first card I made with Karen Burniston's Flower Pot Pop-Stand. I liked that the die could make a free standing 'in a box type' card, or be done inside a folded card with the included Pop Stand die.

I wanted this one to stand on it's own but also have a base, so came up with this circular base that folds up flat with the rest of the card for mailing.

Then it opens up to give the Flower Pot Pop-Stand a cute base! To make the base, I adhered a purple circle to the black scalloped circle and scored it down the centre. Note - I cut the purple circle down the centre before adhering it to the black one, which reduces the bulk at the fold line. Line up the Flower Pot Pop-Stand piece on the score line using the included alignment nubs and cut.

Adhere the completed Flower Pot Pop-Stand to the base using a strong adhesive and let dry. I used Tombow Liquid Adhesive.

I then cut a smaller teal scalloped circle and cut it in half. This was adhered to the bottom of the black base, lining  up the cut lines on either side of the score line on the black piece. The reason I added the teal, is to hide the holes from the Pop Stand.

Midnight is the newest Pop it Ups Character, and he/she is SO cute. And easy peasy to assemble, I might add.

One of the labels from the new Labels and Circles was left blank on the back so I can write my message on it.

The Flower Pot Pop-Stand is completely generic and can be used for many different occasions. I like that my base option gives us a third way to display it!
