Pop Up Birthday Wishes

Front View

Inside View

Used My Craft Studio Encyclopedia and printed off template using 120gsm for the inside. with a scalpol I carefully cut around the sentiment then coloured in with shop bought marker pens, when dry I applied glitter paint.
Centura pearl pink cardstock was used for the main card, cut to size and scored then used a corner punch on all four corners. Embossed two heart shapes using Crafters Companion board and cut out, put the largest through a heart embossing folder to give effect,these then were coloured in added fine glitter around the edges off the hearts to make them stand out.
Attached ribbon with finger tape and used a strip down the middle and dipped it all into fine glitter. The balloons were attached using silicone glue then the hearts were attached on the top with silicone glue to hide the sharp wire for safety. Added peel off stars and sentiments to bling it all up,
Used wet glue for the popout on the inside making it easier to attach and then added peel off strips to hide the workings off the popout. I hope my Grandaughter likes it.

Love And Best Wishes

To Make this landscape card I took two pieces off card and scored the top off the back card 1" deep and attached both together with finger tape
Using The Window Of The Hearts collection by Hunkydory I used an A4 topper blinged it up with fine glitter,  used a die cut oval image from the collection and again blinged it in the same way.
Paper doily was used to frame the die cut oval, used pro marker duck egg blue and added self adhesive gemstones to decorate and attached all to topper using glue pen, flowers for embelishment used to finish off design then attached completed topper onto the card using finger tape.
I will display this card on

Mans Birthday Card

Image was taken from My Craft Studio CD Rom. Printed it out several times making each layer smaller. Used a pre scored scalloped 250gsm white card blank and inked around the edges. Attached all layers to form pyrimage using silicone glue to give dimension. Quickie glue was used along with fine glitter to highlight parts off the water and boat.
My brother- in- law loved this card, it is my first mans card.
Insert made from blue marble 80gsm paper.
