It is such fun to create these cards. From trying to picture the design and making a pattern, to cutting the lines, and finally 'popping' the image out and seeing it in 3d is a very satisfying process. It almost reminds me of organic chemistry where I had to visualize the molecules on paper into 3d structures and rotate them in my head! I'm still learning though, so most of my designs have a 'prototype' copy where I will realize that something doesn't 'pop' just right and will have to do some tweaking to make it just right :)
