Hop, Hop Hooray!



Hi everyone,
It's my turn to share a Pop It Ups project on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. I don’t know about you, but I always need birthday cards especially at this time of year as I give away a lot of my cards to family for Christmas. Today I am playing with the new Lucky the Rabbit Character die set to create a Pop Up birthday card.
Here is how I created my card:


  1. Cut a piece of carrot themed designer paper so it is 4 1/2 inches x 6 1/4 inches. Cut the orange polka dot designer paper at 4 1/2 inches x 5 3/4 inches.
  • Score the carrot themed designer paper at 1/2 inch from one end. Apply adhesive to the 1/2 inch score line carrot side up and attach to the back of the orange polka dot designer paper. Fold paper on this score line.
  • Using the Lots of Pops pop up die, centre the die so that the centre nubs line up with score line of the designer paper and die cut. Refer to Karen Burniston’s video here on how to use the Lots of Pops Pop Up Card.
  • Fold the paper in half again and line up the edge from the Agatha Edges die set to create edge on the top and bottom of the card.
  • Open up card and pop up all the Pop Up  pieces previously die cut on the designer paper.
2. Apply Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Tape to the back of a piece of green card stock large enough to die cut 3 decorative flourishes from the Agatha Edges die set. Die cut. Adhere one of the pieces to the top and bottom of the pop up card. (reverse the third decorative flourish for the front of the card.
3. Cut a piece of orange card that measures 4 1/2 inches x 11 1/2 inches. Score the card at 5 3/4.
  • Apply adhesive to one side of the back of the pop up designer paper piece and adhere to the inside of the orange card.
  • Apply adhesive to the other side of the pop up designer paper piece and adhere this to other side of the inside of orange card.

4. Using the Lucky the Rabbit Character die set die cut the following:
  • (1) Solid Rabbit Body from black card
  • (1) Detail Rabbit Body from Beige Velvet Adhesive Sheet
  • (1) Solid Feet from Pink Velvet Adhesive Sheet
  • (1) Nose from Pink Velvet Adhesive Sheet
  • (1) Inner Ears from Pink Velvet Adhesive Sheet (die cut these from Detail Rabbit Body)
  • (1) set of Whiskers from White Card (apply Transparent Double Sided Adhesive to back of card before die cutting)
  • (1) set of Eyes from White Card (apply Transparent Double Sided Adhesive to back of card before die cutting)
  • (1) Rabbit Tail from White Card (apply Transparent Double Sided Adhesive to back of card before die cutting)
  • (1) Buck Teeth from White Card (apply Transparent Double Sided Adhesive to back of card before die cutting)
  • (6) Carrots from Orange Card
  • (6) Carrot Tops from Green Card
Assemble Lucky the Rabbit adding a carrot to it’s hand and attach to the top pop up piece of the card. You can view Karen Burniston's video on how to assemble Lucky the Rabbit here.
5. Using the Props 7 – Basket  die set die cut the following:
  • (2) Baskets & Accessory pieces from Brown Card
  • (2) Grass pieces from Green Card.
  • Use the graphic above created by Karen Burniston to assemble the baskets.
  • Add the Green grass pieces to the inside top of the baskets.
  • Adhere two carrots to each of the baskets.
  • Attach baskets to the two side pop up panels on card.
6.  Using the Lucky Birthday Clear Stamp set, stamp the “hop, hop Hooray!” sentiment onto cream card using black ink.
  • Use the Fishtail Banner die from the Lots of Pops die set to die cut sentiment.
  • Sponge around the edge of the banner using orange PanPastels.
  • Attach banner to front pop up panel on card.

The Front of the Card:
7.  Cut a piece of Orange Polka Dot designer paper that is 4 1/2 inches x 5 3/4 inches
  • Use the edge die from the Agatha Edges die set to cut a decorative edge to bottom of card.
  • Adhere designer paper to front of card.
  • Use the Green Flourish Decorative die cut remaining from step 2 along the decorate edge of the designer paper.
8. Using the Lucky Birthday Clear Stamp set stamp the “It’s Somebunny’s Birthday” sentiment to cream card stock using black ink.
  • Line up the large label die from the Katie Label Accordion Card die set so that the sentiment is on the right edge of the die. Die cut.
