Shabby Love Pop Up Card

Welcome to another edition of Crazy 4 Challenges! This week we were asked to be inspired by the word POP! I decided to make a pop up card!

So the front is pretty cute right? in my signature simple shabby style. Which includes the aqua paint splat I accidentally but happily spilled on it while I made a mixed media canvas (you’ll see that in the next few days) but inside…

… is a fun pop up! This one is very easy to do. All you need are two symmetrical die cut shapes with a bit extra hanging off the bottom edge. I partially die cut mine but I suppose you could also glue on a tab. Glue each tab a bit away from the fold line of your card and glue the tops together. That’s it!

This photo shows the alignment a bit better. I added jump rings, chain and some chipboard hearts covered in liquid pearls. I added some detail to the frame with liquid pearls too. If you make one of these, be sure to use sturdy cardstock. I thought lightweight would be better because this is an intricate die and then it wouldn’t fall over under it’s own weight. Well… I hadn’t thought to add all the dangly stuff then! It looks a bit drunken when you first open it but it eventually sways into place once the card is fully open. Then the hearts swing back and forth for a bit. It’s quite interactive!

I hope you will play with us at Crazy 4 Challenge this week. It’s a great time to check out all those fun pop up card tutorials you know you’ve been saving on Pinterest! Right??!!

Enjoy, Rebecca
