April Club Stamp - 'April Showers' Card

Hello Heidi here, to share my card project using the wonderful new Little Claire club stamp set for April -
'April Showers'
Here below, is a tutorial for my featured 'Pop-Up' card. The card kit comes with the club stamps in the set and is ready to make up. These new stamps are just delightful! Cute little ducks, wellies and umbrella's! Just right for the weather we are having at the moment.
I have used lots of bright blue and yellow card and some soft sheer ribbon. When opened, the image inside pops out!
