Did you see the Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies in the Occasions Catalog? They are on page 7. You can use the dies to make a pop up card or trim the pop-up shape to use as a fun element on a card front, scrapbook page or other project. For this card I did both – the Hip Hip Hooray! pops up on the inside and the Happy Birthday element was added to the front.
I got this card idea from one I found on Pinterest – it’s the best source for ideas and inspiration. Another fun element is the black dots – those are actually the White Perfect Accents colored with a Black Sharpie Marker. It adds a fun touch to this birthday card.
Here is a peek at the inside.
There is one change I would make to this card – I’d add a Bermuda Bay card stock layer on the inside of the card so it would show behind the pop-up. With the white behind it it just doesn’t pop enough. But I already had mine all glued down before I thought of that. The next one I make will have that.
You can purchase the Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and the Party with Cake stamp set as a Bundle and save 15%. I’ve been using them a lot right now to make birthday cards. I’m starting a birthday club in March – if you would like to be part of it and receive a real hand-made card from me in the mail – then email me with your birthday and mailing address and I will add you to my list.
here is a video from my Stamper’s Club meeting where I show them how to use the thinlits and make this card. I didn’t do any editing on the video – I think it turned out ok. I’m working towards posting more videos and to start editing them too. It’s a start.
Thanks for stopping by today. I’ll try to be back soon.
