Valentine Pop Up Card

Today's Card Day Tuesday over at My Cricut Craft Room.

The theme for today's cards is Pop Up or use the I-Top.

Here's mine-

I love how this card turned out! You can go here for the tutorial. I think this card is such a neat idea, because you could always put a pocket on the front or back of the tag for a gift card.

Here's what I started with- 4.25" x 11" piece of card stock for the base. 2.5" x 5" piece for tag(stripe) and 2.75"x 5.25" piece for tag matting(polka dot). 1.5" circle punch and a scallop punch.( I wanted the circle inside the scallop but I didn't have a punch that size so I just reversed it) 
I cut the nuts from Handy Man at 2.5"(I hid the screw the cuts out with them on my gypsy)
The bolts were cut from Robots Party at 3.30". I cut 4 all together but 2 of them I hid the slits on so I could use them as a background layer.

Here's the tag and the base before it is all put together. I used 2 colors of Trendy Twine for the tag and around the base. I inked the nuts and bolts with black ink and stamped a Pink By Design Sentiment on a punched circle. The black border on the tag is from an EK Success punch.
Make sure that you leave enough space at the bottom of the tag for it to be attached to the base. I had to move my nuts and bolts up a few times it get it right.

The flat closed view of the card. I used foam squares to add the nuts on the front. 
I used my Crop a Dile to add the eyelet on the top to put the twine through.

Here's a close up of the tag.
