What is a bridge card?

I posted a teaser last week that I’d be sharing the measurements and instructions for a bridge card today. This is one that I learned from others but adapted to fit the Myths and Magic suite from the Stampin’Up! 2018 Occasions catalog. I love this card as it’s a fun pop up that is relatively easy and when pressed flat fits in your standard envelope.

I used a combination of Stampin’ markers and blender pens on stamp pads to color in the characters. The primary colors I used are Tranquil Tide, Smokey Slate and Fresh Fig.

Here is my example. The measurements with instructions are below the photo.
