Pop Up Birthday

October 29, 2020

Yesterday on my Facebook Live, I shared my way of creating a Pop Up Cube Card. Today’s card is another one using my templates. I began by cutting all of the pieces for the cube bases from Night of Navy card. I cut any layers from Balmy Blue card and then all of the Whisper White pieces. I embossed all of the Whisper White pieces using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. Each of the smaller Whisper White panels are attached to the Balmy Blue panels before being attached to the card base. The larger Whisper White panels for inside the cubes are simply attached to the Night of Navy card.

I stamped the two anchors and the compass image from the Sailing Home stamp set onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink. I cut out the anchors with the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing Die. The compass is punched out using the 1-1/2″ Circle Punch. I stamped the large ship and two small ships from the Sailing Home stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the images using Night of Navy and Light Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends. I cut all of the images out using the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing Dies. Lastly I cut Night of Navy card using the rope and knot dies from the Smooth Sailing Dies. All of the pieces are attached straight onto the relevant panels. I stamped “Happy Birthday” from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink.

I punched the ends of the banner using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch before attaching the greeting to the inside of the smaller cubes.I love this style of card and have now made quite a few. I will let you in on my little secret. I created templates for each of the cubes from some retired card. I attached the panels where they need to go and the tabs for the greeting panel. This allows me to add most of my pieces to the card bases before I create the cubes and attach them together. The only thing I have to add once everything is assembled is the greeting.

You can download a copy of my basic instructions with photos of the templates here.

Bye for now,
