Hello! It’s Lisa P here. Have you ever made a pop-up card? They are super fun to create and DeNami Design’s pop-up card templates really simplify the process. Today I’m sharing a pop-up card I created using the adorable CR03 Monster Celebrations Stamp Set!
I started with a standard A2-size card base. I stamped the “HOORAY” monster image from CR03 Monster Celebrations and colored it with markers. I added the CL-E175 Balloon Trio and paper pieced the balloons with patterned papers. And what’s a party without sparkle?!?! With the help of a GL-01 Quickie Glue Pen and some SS02 Extra Fine Sparklets Glitter, the “HOORAY” really shimmers!
I set the card base aside and grabbed a Tiered Pop-Up Card Template. Using a craft knife, I carefully cut along the solid lines. Then, I scored and folded along the dotted lines (making sure the printed guidelines were facing toward the back). Then I went to work creating what would end up being the inside of the card. I stamped a bunch of the monster images from CR03 Monster Celebrations onto scraps of white cardstock, colored them in with markers, did a little paper piecing on some of the images and cut them out leaving a thin white border around their edges. I adhered the images to the various parts of the pop-up card and added some extra details including some balloons, a scalloped border at the top and a sentiment at the bottom.
So now THIS will be what the recipient finds when he/she opens the card:
Isn’t that fun?!?! Makes me smile every time I open it up!
I also added some more glittery sparkle to the inside (on the edge of the scalloped border and on the “YAY!”). Here’s a closer look:
Once the inside was finished, I placed adhesive on the back side of the pop-up panel and adhered it to the inside of my card base. And there you have it! A card with a built-in surprise!
So, what do you think?!?! Are you ready to make a pop-up card??? If you do…be sure to share it with us! We love seeing your creations!
