She also has a great video tutorial for this fun-fold.
Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with our Special Guest stamper, Dawn Griffith - we are thrilled to have Dawn join us this month and so excited to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) any project that has been created by Dawn.  We hope you find great inspiration from the projects.
Whether you are starting the blog hop here at my blog, Stephanie Fischer - The Crafty Thinker, or have come from the person before me, be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey on this blog hop.

I chose to CASE this Pop Up Corner card by Dawn but have put a rather different spin on it. 
The front of the card, specifically the belly band, gives a bit of a clue about what's inside

When my son was young and fascinated by Dinosaurs, we used to play a computer game together (back in the day of the floppy disk!) where we went looking for dinosaurs in various eras to take a photo of them.  It was so much fun!  It's no surprise, then, that I love the No Bones About It stamp set!  Since its introduction I've enjoyed creating many little dino-scenes but I think I like this one the best.
The dimensionality of the card, makes it quite hard to photograph!

When my son (now 23 years old!) saw the inside of this card, he just loved it!  He said he'd love to be 7 or 8 years old again because it would be the ultimate birthday card!  High praise!
Can you spot the danger lurking?

There seems to have been a migration down from the mountains!  The Triceratops couple and the Stegosaurus seem blissfully ignorant of the lurking danger!
The Tyrannosaurus seems to have his eye on the Brachiosaurus

Thank you for visiting my Jurassic world today!
'Til next time
Stephanie

    1. LOL! Pop ups were the first thing that I thought of - then it was what can I pop up and then "Dinosaurs"! Yours is so much more elegant though!

    1. Thanks, Denise. Dawn's video for the Corner Pop Up card is really easy to follow and that's what I used to create the mechanism. If you click the photo of her card at the top of this blog, it should link you to her blog.
      The rest of it is really just decoration and I'll be happy to provide details but it's liable to be a bit long-winded so - if you'd like to provide your email address (to thecraftythinker@outlook.com) I'll be happy to write something up and send it to you.
      I hope this helps.
