It’s always fun to add something a little unexpected to a card. How about a pop-out insert that opens to be bigger than the card itself? Fun right? And super easy!
I started with Paper Smooches‘ Great Chemistry stamp set. I paper-pieced the scientist’s glove which made inserting the beaker very easy! (The set with comes with a couple different options of what to place in the hand.)
I created my insert with one-sided patterned paper to add a bit of color to the folds. The white side was stamped lightly with a pattern of beakers and light bulbs with the sentiment stamped in the center.
The insert opens to be completely flat so it’s easy to add a written message once assembled.
