Hello and welcome! It’s time for yet another challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time, it is my turn to choose the topping and I chose ‘Make it Pop!‘ Basically, you can use bright colors, funky images, or actually make something pop on your birthday project! If that isn’t your cup of tea, then go for the ‘Anything Goes‘ challenge and join us with your birthday themed project! Choice is yours!
And here’s what I made –
I got inspired by these cards made by Jennifer McGuire. The pop ups are in the card front, instead of the inside, which is where I have usually seen them.
I started with the images I wanted to incorporate in the card. I used My Favorite Things Piggy Pebbles (2019 stamp) and Scene Builder stamps to stamp the image on white cardstock using Versafine Onyx black ink, and colored them using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I then fuzzy cut them and set them aside.
For the card base, I chose a light blue cardstock, over which I adhered the tree & bush background and then added the pop up elements and the cute piggies. I then added a few small die cut flowers from Paper Smooches Flowers and Flowers 2 dies, colored using Zig Brush Marker pens and finally added the sentiment from Concord & 9th Tiny Tagalongs.
And that’s my pop up card! I’m joining the following challenges –
