Pop-up cards...I often find myself looking at them when I go to Bookstores...There's always something with these type of cards that makes me smile. I've been wanting to create one for the longest time and I have gathered lots of ideas but it's only now I found the time to make one. Presenting...MY VERY FIRST POP-UP CARD!
POP-UP ELEPHANT BIRTHDAY CARD:
My friend's son celebrated his 7th Birthday and he is into anything elephant...This kid lives and breaths elephants, I tell ya! So, what better way to make him happy on his special day than to create a card with the animal he loves...The image is from Dustin Pike collection and have used this image a couple of times in my projects...Colored with my Bic/Sharpie markers, added some glaze and embellishments on it and walah...he is one happy animal...
POP-UP ELEPHANT BIRTHDAY CARD (CLOSE-UP):
Stamped blue polka dots on a white cardstock and stamped "Happy Birthday" in black...Perfect! I incorporated some stitching and more designer cardstocks to achieve the look I wanted. I stamped 3 balloons in 3 different colors, cut and matted them and attached with some pop-dots to give it a 3-D look.
POP-UP ELEPHANT BIRTHDAY CARD (FRONT):
I decided to make it simple in front since there's a lot of things going on inside the card. Card size is A2.
POP-UP ELEPHANT BIRTHDAY CARD WITH ENVELOPE:
As you can see, I have several elephant images, I guess, I love elephants too...LOL. I always make sure there's a space for special message in my cards so, that is what that blank panel is for...I got some inspiration from the book "Fabulous Folds for Cardmaking" in making this card...Got some ideas but managed to make it my own...This was fun to make but sure took me a while to gather the right combination of materials...Thanking the Lord for His inspiration each day.
