I love using designs and material that we all may have in our supplies. It is very satisfying to re-use stamps and Paper. I feel like I am getting my monies worth! This design has lots of layers, but I confess I love lots of layers. It could be modified by creating the card with a Misty Moonlight base, eliminating one of the Layers. I received equal number of comments on this one about the blue and green leaves. I will have to admit I like both versions myself. This first view is of the completed cards showing the two different color leaves.
This second view shows the inside of the card and the surprise pop up element. This way of creating a pop up is very easy. I gave this card to a good friend and there was plenty of space to write my greeting in the card. I used blends to color in my leaves and flowers.
Measurements and Supplies for Today’s Surprise Pop Up Birthday Card:
- I used a Basic White Card Base 8 ½” by 5 ½” , scored and folded at 4 ¼” along with a piece 3” by 4 ½” Scored and folded at 1”, 2”, 3” and 4” for the pop up mechanism for the inside of the card.
- There are Two Pieces of Misty Moonlight 4” by 5 ¼”
- Next, two Pieces of Pale Papaya 1) 3 ¾” by 5”, 2) 3 ¾” by 8 1/8”, scored at 3”
- Also, Scrap Basic White to cut the white panel on the front of the card, stamp and die cut the two flowers, and create the sentiment
