For Halloween, I made a few cards to share with friends and family. Here are a couple of samples of what can be done with Pop 'n Cuts.
An extra surprise occurs when the Sizzix Zig-Zag pop up die is used to add elements that pop up from behind the featured item mounted to the round label pop up. The Zig-Zag is trimmed to fit behind the tombstone shown here. The tombstone is made from the Sizzix Tim Holtz Cabinet die and mini Cabinet die trimmed on the sides. Then tree branches are adhered to the Zig-Zag action. They lie behind the tombstone, and pop up from behind it when the card is opened and the tombstone itself pops up.
Another card featured Tim Holtz's Pumpkin Jack and branches cut from Tim's On The Edge Twigs die. They resemble scary arms with bony fingers when they pop up from behind Jack!
I can't wait to get back into the studio to make some cards for Thanksgiving and Christmas! Pop 'n Cuts does the cutting and thinking for you, making it easy to put a smile on the face of lucky recipients of your interactive cards!

See the photo to the right showing the Zig-Zag pop up die trimmed way down so it fits the top of the round label platform. The black "twiggy arms" are mounted to the front of the action areas on the Zig-Zag pop up.
