Art Impressions Pop Ups!

Hello AI Fans!!!

So how many of you have tried the AI Pop Ups?? This was my first time and I LOVE them!! If you need to put together a card very quickly, and still want it to look amazing and have the AI fun, then Pop Ups are the way to go! Oh my gosh, I can't believe how easy this was! They even number them for you so you can't make any mistakes! Grab a set of these today to keep on hand for when you're in a hurry and still want to wow them with your craftiness!! I just created a simple mat, machine stitched around it (cause I felt a little guilty that the card was just so easy!!) and added a simple bow. That was it, and this card was done! I used AI Deco Set 3, and it will make FOUR amazing, very dimensional cards!




Thanks so much for stopping in today, and don't forget to join in our Java Love Challenge for a chance to win an awesome prize package from Art Impressions!
