1 Cut a piece of patterned paper to ¼” × 8¼” (6mm × 21cm) and fold it in half. This will be your card liner.

On the folded

edge, draw a box, marking the paper at 1″ (2.5cm) and 11?2″ (3.8cm) from the top. You’ll want the strip to be 2″ (5cm) long. Unfold the lining and cut along the long sides of the box only.

2 Adhere a piece of white cardstock cut to ½” × 4″ (1.3cm × 10.2cm) over the pop-up strip.

3 Punch holes in the white strip.

4 Adhere the card liner to the interior of the card base.

5 Tie baby-themed embellishments through the holes in the pop-up strip. Finish embellishing the inside of the card by adding strips of  scallop-punched paper to the top edge of the card.
