Congrats




Hi everyone,

It's my turn to post the Pop it Ups Wednesday tutorial on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. This time round I have created a card that can be used for birthdays etc using the Cake Pop Up Card die set.


Here is how I created my card:


1. Cut a piece of designer paper 5 inches by 12 inches, score along the 12 inch side at 6 inches. 

  • Place the main Cake Pop Up die so that the alignment nubs of the die are directly on the fold, secure with removable tape, and run through a die cutting machine.
                            


2. Cut a 3 inch x 5 inch piece of Dark Fuschia Soft Finish Cardstock and cover the back with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Die cut the cake and snip at all the connection points to isolate just the cake are from the Dark Fuschia cardstock.
  • Refer to Karen Burniston's YouTube Video which shows how to work the folds to create the pop-up  cake on both the pop up and Dark Fuschia piece. You can find the video here
  • Remove the protective backing from the Dark Fuschia cake and adhere it over the cake on the designer paper cake to change the color.
  • Die cut the cake stand from a piece of Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape adhered to the back.
  • Die cut the large and small rectangles using coordinating designer paper.
  • Die cut the icing strips (not include in photo above), from White Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the front of the card. Remove the protective backing from the adhesive and cover the adhesive with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish glitter with fingers.
  • Die cut the candles using Whisper Blue Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Die cut the flames rom White Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the front of the card. Remove the protective backing from the adhesive and cover the adhesive with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish glitter with fingers. Color flames using yellow markers. Adhere flame to flame on the Whisper Blue flames.

  • Decorate the cake referring to the photo above for placement.
3. Cut a 5 inch x 12 inch piece of Dark Fuschia Cardstock and score in the centre to create a top fold card.
  • Attach the pop up card inside the Dark Fuschia card adhering one side at a time, avoiding placing adhesive near the pop-up areas. 

4. Cut a piece of Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock approximately 3 inches x 5 1/2 inches. Place the circle edge from the Pull Card Edges die set approximately 1/4 inch down from the top edge of the card and die cut.
  • Emboss the larger panel using the Lots of Dots Embossing Folder.
  • Attach the panel to the lower panel of the pop up card. 
  • Trim off any overhang from the sides of the card.
5. Cut a piece of Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock approximately 1 inch by 5 1/2 inches and cover the back with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. 
  • Use one of the borders from the Jewels 1 die set and run through die cutting machine. Attach border to top portion of pop up card. 
  • Place Pink/Silver Glitter Dot Peel Off Stickers to each of the circle areas of the die cut.
6. Counting from the smallest die, die cut the 4th die from the Stitched Circles die set using White Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Stamp the sentiment "Enjoy your day" to the circle using black ink. Color using copic markers.
  • Attach sentiment circle just above the circle inset on the lower panel of pop up card.
7. The Front of the Card: 


  • Cut a 4.75 inch x 5.75 inch piece of designer paper. Position the circle edge die from the Pull Card Edges die set, so that the circle portion of the die is approximately 1/2 inch up from the bottom edge.
  • Run through die cutting machine and attach to card as per photo above.
8. Counting from the smallest die, die cut the 4th die from the Stitched Circles die set using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Attach to card as per photo above using foam tape.

9. Cut a piece of Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock large enough to cut out the A Way with Words Congrats sentiment adding Clear Double Sided Adhesive tape to the back. Die cut the sentiment and attach to the white circle.

10. Cut a piece of Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock approximately 1 inch by 5 1/2 inches and cover the back with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. 

  • Use one of the borders from the Jewels 1 die set and run through die cutting machine. Attach border to top portion of pop up card.
