For one of my best friend’s 25th birthday, I decided to put together a very pink, girly, and cute looking pop up card. Most of the embellishments I made myself, but some were purchased and made by Jolee. The paper was actually a Target brand (very cheap) and not from my typical Stampin Up collection. They sell packs of metallic and pink colored-palette paper for less than $10. I’d definitely recommend checking out their scrapbook section for paper the next time you are there. But my usual go-to location is JoAnn Fabric or ordering from Stampin Up.
This card uses a V shaped pop up as the mechanism. Again, I will show you a how to for both the V shape and L shape in a tutorial that I am still putting together. Hope you enjoy this!
Have a beautiful day!
I created these surprise party invitations for my future father-in-law’s 65th birthday. A couple photos didn’t come out very clear, but I no longer have them in my possession to take addition photos. I wanted to show you how you can make a very simple pop up card.
I didn’t do much drawing or serious x-acto knife work here, and the pop up itself is very simple. It is an L shaped pop-up mechanism that creates a step coming out of the page. I created the balloons on the front cover, and many of the embellishments on the inside, on my own. This was mainly because I was too cheap to buy the already made scrap-booking birthday party embellishments by Jolee, and so I took a picture of the ones I liked on my phone in the store, and then used them as inspiration to make my own versions at home.
The pop-up balloons in the center are simply cut out using scissors and drawing the shape of a balloon and I added tiny strips of ribbon for the balloon strings. And as always, I hand wrote all the text in the card.
If you don’t have the time or patience to create your own embellishments, you can easily make these exact invitations by purchasing some ready-made scrapbooking party stickers, using some pinking shears for a little pizzazz or any other paper punching device to make the paper look pretty, and a couple sheets of paper. I’ll show you soon how to make the L shaped (as well as a V shaped) pop up card and how you can easily decorate a pop-up that will make any occasion fun and special.
