Birthday Pop-Up card tutorial

imageHere it is!  This card is so easy, you’ll surprise yourself!

Start with 1 piece of Melon Mambo CS measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and score or fold in the middle at 4 1/4″ – this is your base card.

Cut a piece of Whisper White CS measuring 5 1/4″ x 8 1/4″ and also score or fold in the middle at 4 1/8″ This is the piece of CS you will die cut.

Place Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies #140620  with the middle points exactly on the middle score or fold line and die cut.  TIP:  I lay my magnetic platform on the Big Shot and then layer everything  on top – cutting pad, Whisper White CS, Party Pop-Up die, cutting pad on top.  That way it doesn’t slide when transferring to the Big Shot.



Release the pieces between the letters of “Happy Birthday” – it looks great!  Love the candles on top!  OK, back to work now, see the fold line in the letters and cake base?  Now make that fold out (mountain)  and leave the top and bottom of the Whisper White CS to fold in (valley).  That fold will fit right inside of the base card fold.



TIP:  When adhering the Whisper White inside, I prefold it and put adhesive on one side only.  Place that into card base fitting fold of Whisper White up to the valley fold of the Melon Mambo card base and then fold card together and press.  Now open and place adhesive on the other side of Whisper White and fold card together again, pressing….now your inside should be perfectly placed inside and open and close easily.  Make sure the candles and Happy Birthday are folded so they pop out when opened.



To finish the card, I used Lot’s of Labels Dies #138281 and die cut a piece from It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack #140552 for the front of the card.  I also used the 2nd die that comes in the set on a scrap piece of Melon Mambo CS and adhered the letters and some of the confetti on top of the Label.  Before attaaching with Stampin’ Dimensionals, I stamped confetti and candles from Party with Cake stamp set #140672 in Melon Mambo ink on the front of the base card.


And to finish, add It’s My Party Enamel Dot’s #140554 and stamp the inside with “Make a wish” stamp found in Party Wishes stamp set #140961  I also colored the flames on the candles with a Hello Honey or some yellow marker.
