Mom Pop-Up Greeting Card
This 3D Mom Pop-Up Greeting Card is a card and a gift all in one! Once you learn the technique for making this, you can use any word or number you want to convey the message you’d like.
We aren’t using a cut file here. Instead, we’re using one of the fonts from our newest font collection. This means you can create any word you want and aren’t limited to available cut files.
