Birthday Present Card Tutorial

Popup birthday presents card (front)
Here is the card I made for swapping last week at the Close To My Heart Convention. I was hoping to make 50 cards to swap in Dallas...but I only had enough supplies for 30. 

Thanks again to Split Coast Stampers & LeeAnn for the inspiration for this card!

Cardstock to coordinate with Dotty papers
Dotty for You pattern papers
White Daisy Cardstock
Sweet Leaf ink pad
Lagoon ink pad
Sunset ink pad
Creme Brulee ink pad
Party Pennants stamp set

popup birthday presents card (inside)


Cut White Daisy to 5 ¼” X 8 1/4” scored at 4 1/8”. Fold in half. Mark the folded end at 1/2", 1 1/4", 2 3/4" & 4 1/2" - see below. Using your cutter cut onto the folded edge to 7/8" on the first mark, 1 1/2 on the 2nd mark, and 2" on the 3rd & 4th mark, cutting through both layers. Next, fold each of the cut lines back. Do this both ways using a bone folder to reinforce the folds.

Open the page and push the ‘presents’ into the inside of the card so they pop out as shown below. Don't adhere the white cardstock to the card until later. 

Cut 3 strips of patterned paper at 3/4 x 1 3/4, 1 1/2 x 3, & 1 3/4 x 4. Fold patterned paper pieces in half and adhere to your pop-out areas. Adhere a small bow made from bakers twine with a mini glue dot to the top smallest gift.

Cut cardstock for card base at 5 ½ X 8 ½. Adhere popup to base. For the front, cut white cardstock 3 x 4. Stamp with Party Pennants stamp. Cut Dotty paper 2 1/4 x 4. Adhere both pieces to front. Cover seam with 4 in Kraft border. Using the Cricut AP cartridge, cut a scallop circle that coordinates with the "Congratulations" scallop circle on the AP exclusion stamp set. Use foam tape to make it pop. Finally, tie bows using bakers twine & attach with glue dot to your stamped banners.

I'd love to hear your feed back on this card. Thanks for stopping by!
