Pop-Up Birthday Card Requested

Hello there.  I can’t believe my nephew turned 5 today! 😱  A few weeks ago, he asked for a pop-up card.  I went old school and made him a free standing pop-up card following the tutorial HERE.  This is what it looks like collapsed to fit into an envelope.




Here it is “popped up”.

SugarPea Designs Chunky Monkey stamp set was used.  Stamping was done with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It cardstock and colouring was done with Copic markers.  The sentiment from the same set was heat embossed with white embossing powder.


The images in the forefront were die cut out with the matching dies.  Masking was used for the images on the pull-up panel.  The background was created by blending turquoise dye ink with a blender brush over a cloud edge stencil.  Personalized his card by adding his name on the back using Vintage Varsity Alphabet dies from Memory Box.  

Even though he was expecting a pop up card, I think he was still pleasantly surprised and kept asking how it was made.  Told him it’s a trade secret. *lol*😂   Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Those sweet monkeys with a balloon and bananas are adorable. What a great card for Liam. I love how you personalized it for him and I bet he does too. That's great that he asked how you made it. Maybe he will come and craft with you and how fun will that be!

What an adorable pop-up birthday card for your nephew, Trina! He must have been so happy to see these cute monkeys, and his name on the backside. The little Liam was curious about how it was made. That shows crafty interest runs in the family! ;-)
