I really believe that this is pretty self easy and yields a very nice and cute card. I love the Popup effect. I used a pressure setting of 6 and a new blade. I also set to no tabs. I used my MTC software for this project. I normally use the Ecraft Pro Software however. I cut the main insert and then placed it in the Xyron Stamp Creator, I put a piece of waxed paper behind the lettering so it would not adhere to the base card. I next placed the popup on the base card. Quick and easy which is what I had to have since I worked all last week on my Relay for Life event. I was a worker for two teen girl co-captains. (you know I did all of the prep for the food and they served and helped) I was totally crazy, I didn’t realize that I would be so busy. The day before the event, I got up at about 6 am Friday morning to gather my stuff for my Senior Craft Class. I knew I would be off to the relay event for setup right after the class. I then worked Relay for Life till 10:00 am the next day. Talk about tired, I used my experience to relate to what Cancer patients experience in their fight for life. No I am blessed and this no way is any way similar but very symbolic of their journey. Staying all night reminds us of the awful journey when it seems so hopeless. They are tired and yet they still fight on, then morning comes. Hopefully bring a cure or remission or release. I brought this to my mind every time I wanted to give up and go home.
