Love card with sizzix

Hello from a snow clad part of the world ... 
Its all snow outside my window , haven't seen sunshine for days except today !
So i thought of sharing a pop up card i recently made for valentines day.

They make pop up cards so easy ! :) 
Here is what i made with it 
 The die i have used here is
The die originally cuts a longer card , but i reduced the size to fit my requirement. 
That's the beauty of these magnetic dies , you get to position your pop up mechanism 
anywhere you like ! its just great! 
They have a coordinating label for the insides in the Sizzix Sizzlits Die Set 3PK - Love Set
The label is what i have used outside instead on the inside. 
i have used the  Sizzix Framelits Die Set 8PK - Circles  instead on the inside , with 

 The die is absolutely great! love the outcome 
I curled the petals inwards to give the flower a dimensional look.
Now here is a little idea about the Pop n' cuts die . 
You will need your extended cutting pads with this die.
So if u buy a XL die be it pop n cuts or any other XL die from sizzix make sure 
you also buy a pair of extended cutting pads. 

Ok so first you need to align the pop up die inside your trey 
how do u do that ? 
Well this is something your die looks like with the base 
 Make sure you position your pop up die on the score marking given on the die. 
I hope u can see the lines aligned together.
Then you just keep your card-stock and sandwich it with your cutting pads and run it though your machines. 
 So thats the original and full size of your cut card.
 That's how the cuts come , Now we have to fold it.
 The trick is to do a vally fold then a mountain fold. 
make sure u hold the pop up correctly before folding as shown below. 
The larger two cut lines on the top when you hold the card facing u .

 Hope it was informative 
Along with that i think this video will clear up a lot of things :) 
Happy cutting !!
