Today I share my Build a Birthday card with a difference. This is a pop up card, so slightly more advanced technique, but still easy when you follow the steps.
Let’s get started!
Here is the front of the card, and yes, it just looks like a normal C6 card, but wait til you see inside. I started with an A5 sheet of Watermelon Wonder card stock folded in half. I embossed a piece of Whisper White card with the Decorative Dots TIEF and adhered that to the front of the card. Then I added a smaller piece of Designer Series Paper from the Cherry on Top DSP Stack.
I stamped the sentiment onto white card and used the Note Tag Punch. I also used the Chalk Talk framelits to die cut the Watermelon Wonder piece, but cut one end off. It fits perfectly under the Note Tag Punch!!!!
On the inside top of the card, I glued another piece of the Cherry on Top DSP Stack paper before winding some twine around and through the tag and tying in a bow.
Now here is the fun part!
Check out all these candles that pop up when you open the card. How cool is that!
I stamped all the candles and cut them out and punched the top of each one above the flame by placing it in the Modern Label punch!
Here is a side view of the open card.
This was not my original idea although I did need to change the measurements from Foolscap to A4 dimensions. I need to thank Georgia Giguere for this idea and you can view her video here https://youtu.be/iBD0r_V9YmE
