A: Fore Ground. The illusion of the something up close to you is the,
FORE GROUND, which in this case is grass.

Everything you need to make a pop-up can be made from two pieces of A4 card.

Don't block the view.

Make sure that you see through each layer.
    Draw & colour your distance scene on C = BACKGROUND.
    Draw, colour & cut out your main thing on B = MID GROUND.
    Draw, colour & cut out a small thing on A = FORE GROUND.
    Glue A & B to the card on which you have created C.
    Make Levers to pull your pop-up up and down, and glue them in place.
