Birthday Pop Up

We’re having a beautiful day here today.  I hope the cold weather is over.  We planted a lilac bush and peonies (gifts in memory of my mother), and I’m getting tired of emptying my recycle bins so we can use them to cover the plants to protect them from the frost.  My mom loved fragrant flowers, and I must have taken that after her, so I’m excited to have lilacs and peonies in my yard.

Today, I’d like to share this special pop-up birthday card we made in a recent Stamp Club.

I used the Party with Cake stamp set, which comes as a bundle with the Party Pop-Up Thinlets (woohoo! Save 15%), and the Confetti TIEF.  I turned the embossing over so the “de-bossed” side was on top and sponged several colors of ink over it for a different look.


The inside pops up when opened.  It’s so simple.  If you’ve been stamping for years, like I have, you may remember making pop-up cards using brass stencils and an exacto knife.  We even had a special clip board that was made like a lazy Susan, so you could spin it and cut without lifting your knife.  These cards took a LOT of time.  With our new pop-up dies, you can make these cards with one pass through the Big Shot!  Amazing how far we’ve come!


I hope you enjoyed seeing this card.  If you have any questions, please comment below so I can respond.
