Hello everyone !

I hope you are having a great day and week so far. Today I was intensively brainstorming and sketching as I received an order for a card on demand for a birthday and as it is for a young girl I really want to create a wow effect.

I came naturally to the pop up card design, which is one of the cards I find the most spectacular, while my pictures for the birthday card are drying I have been creating one with dots. Don’t ask me why dots, but it was matching my mood of the day 🙂

I have created a little video to support the blog post and you can watch it by clicking here below !

In case you want to give a go yourself to this splendid card, here are the measurements :

  1. Card stock for the base: (Mine is white pearl but you can of course pick any color)
    • 1 piece : 28 cm x 10 cm
    • 1 piece : 25 cm x 9 cm
    • 1 piece : 20 cm x 9 cm
  2. Card stock 2 (for the layers) (Mine is Golden, you can find the same by Crafters Companions
    • 2 pieces : 13,5 cm x 9,5 cm (back and front)
    • 4 pieces : 6 cm x 8,5 cm (inside pictures)
    • 2 pieces you will need to measure according to your own placement in case you put the mechanism a bit below mine.
  3. Designer paper 
    • 2 pieces : 13 cm x 9 cm
    • 4 pieces : 5,5 cm x 8 cm
    • 2 pieces adapted to your inner layers
  4. Ribbon, about 30 to 40 cm matching your color scheme
  5. Glue (I recommend Tombow, but the glue you like is absolutely fine !)
  6. Rim Stones, pearls, or whatever you like to add to your card !
  7. Embossing folder with the dots is from Sizzix

That is it ! If you have questions or any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me, I am always happy to help 🙂

I hope you like it and I see you tomorrow for a new card 😉

Your Alba
