Today’s cute little project is made especially for my super little granddaughters next birthday. Where does the time go! She’s getting so grown up already. I wanted to make it a bit special and I remembered that I used to love Pop Up cards and books when I was a child. So that was the style that I decided on. Don’t you just love cards that are a little different! I love this simple pop up card and so will you. I’ve a bonus PDF tutorial for you to show you how to easily create the simple Pop Up Mechanism for yourself.
I should mention that the inside of the card was inspired by a Pinterest post by Laura Mackie. There was however no instructions for the pop up and in fact she created a different mechanism than mine and the outside of my card is totally different.
keep checking back for more projects like this
Today I’m actually using two stamp sets that have retired. I was just playing about with them and decided to pop them on my blog anyhow as I loved how the project turned out. Normally I wouldn’t use retired product however it doesn’t matter in this case as you can use this layout for other projects anyhow. But do make sure to check back on my blog soon as I’m planning to use this simple pop up card mechanism on loads more projects using new stamp sets that you are absolutely going to fall in love with.
if you want to spend a few happy hours browsing …
If you’ve not already checked out the new catalogue then HERE is a handy link for you. I just love, love, love this new catalogue. The only problem is my Wish List is even longer than usual as there are so many gorgeous new products that I’ve just got to have. So I’m listing them in order of ‘gotta have it now’ priority and treating myself each month to new goodies. If you live in the U.K and would like to receive a copy of the new catalogue, just email me to email@example.com and I will get back to you.
These are the main colours I’ve used today. Melon Mambo is always a favourite of mine and the Balmy Blue and Old Olive work perfectly for sky and grass. These colours work so well together.
how to make an easy, simple Pop Up card
Now who do you think this little bunny is waiting for?
Why, it’s Miss Eliza of course!
I just loved the Garden Girl stamp set as it reminded me of our own little Miss Eliza. So I was quite sad to see it retire. However, I’m absolutely devastated that my favourite Sheltering Tree is now retired. I normally sell off my retired stock however I really don’t think I’m going to be able to part with the Sheltering Tree stamp set any time soon. But, with all the new stuff I’ve got to play with … I might just change my mind. lol.
Anyhow, here is a side view of the simple pop up card mechanism. I made it to sit out 1.5cm from the cardbase. Just perfect for bringing the little girl to the forefront.
