· Practice making the pop-up out of scrap paper first.
· Plan out the papers before starting to die cut.
· Use a double-sided paper for making the pop-up and you will be able to use opposite side for the accent pieces.
· When putting the pop-up together, make sure to match up the top decorative edges. (Each side is slightly different.)
· Use liquid glue for adhering the frame accent.

Happy crafting!

Cute card! I like how you personalized the inside of the card, too. We've also made some fun cards on our Out of Office blog.

Thanks for sharing the idea! Can't believe Father's Day is already here.
