Pop-Up Sailing Card by vicexversa Pop-Up Sailing Card by vicexversa
I did this pop-up card for =largethomas (he doesn't know yet :whisper:) as a little cutesy surprise. He is a boat builder by profession, and currently studying naval engineering, so of course, maritime themes are always welcome. :aww:

I designed the pattern on Illustrator, then printed, cut and assembled it together to make the card. You can move the boat along the water by pulling the tab attached to the anchor. :P

Folded Size: DIN A5 (210 x 148 mm)
Paper: Fabriano 200gsm in white

You can see a little demonstration of how it works here:

UPDATE: It was suggested that I upload a file with clearer photos, so here it is :la: Better quality, more details to see, more vibrant colours. :)

Please vote here if you'd like me to start commissions for Pop Up Card templates of your own idea:
:note: Would you like me to put commissions up to make you a unique Printable Pop Up Card Template, in this style: [link] ? You give me your idea and I make you a template that you can print and put together yourself as many times as you want.

And, of course, thank you to everyone that :+fav:s and comments. :hug:
