Hooray for Today


Hi Crafty Friends,

Today is my birthday, so we are finishing up this Birthday Week Posts on my blog this week with one more birthday card. This time I have created a pop up card using some of the stamps and dies from Made To Surprise by Sam Calcott's Book Wiper Pop Up Collection which was released earlier in the year. Last month I shared a nursery themed book card using the Pop Up Book die, but I didn't add the additional pop-up to that one. As you can see in the photo above, the balloons pop-up at the top of the card. You can also include a pop up coming from the bottom of the book, but that would be harder to display so I haven't done that as yet.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

To create my card I used the 6in x 6in Pop-Up Book Mechanism Pop-up Wiper die set to create the book pages pop up the book. I added the birthday image and sentiment to the centre of the book using the Pop Up Wiper Happy Birthday stamp set. 

To add the balloons to the top of the card, I used the Wiper Mechanism die set adding the balloons from the Pop-up Birthday die set both also from the Pop-up Wiper Book Collection.

Here is a view of my card taking at an angle, so you can see how the book pops up. On the last book card I made, I added foam tape between all the pages, which made it a little bulky. I decided not to do that for this one, so the card folds fairly flat.

To decorate the front of my card I used the Happy Days stamp/die set from the Made To Surprise Simple Pop-ups Collection. 

For all the square matts and layers on my card I used square dies from Creative Craft Products Nested Squares die set.

Happy, Happy Birthday!!! I really like how you added the wiper mechanism to have the balloons popping up above the pop up book... sort of like a double pop up... very cool!
