Window Pop-up Birthday Card!

Hello Crafties!

I am back with a new DT post for Itsy Bitsy.

Birthdays are special and giving a handmade card for a birthday expresses our feelings towards that person.
Also we love surprises on our birthdays, don’t we? 😍
So today, I have a different type of birthday card for you – a surprise window pop up card!

You can see the card in action below :

Read on to find out how to make one….
Step 1 :
I first used the Victorian Window thin cut die by Little Birdie on a blue paper from the Chevron in Aquarelle paper pack.
Step 2 :
Then, I watercolored different colors on a watercolor cardstock and used the little flowers and leaves dies (that come in the Victorian Window thin cut dieset) with it. I assembled the flowers and leaves on the window panel.
* You can use colored cardstock instead of watercoloring *
Step 3 :
I then trimmed a sheet of textured white cardstock by Little Birdie to 5″ × 10″ and scored at 5 inches creating a 5 × 5 inches square card base.
On the front, I stamped the brick stamp with vintage photo distress ink.
Step 4 :
In the next step, I traced the inside of the window on the stamped panel. And then using a cutter, cut the traced part. After this, I adhered the completed window panel (from step 2) on the front panel.
Step 5 :
The next step I did was stamping and coloring these pretty images with various coloring mediums including distress inks. These are from the Jungle Birthday , Birthday Wish and Happy Bird-day stamp sets by Little Birdie.
I also adhered them together in a cluster.
Like this :
Step 6 :
Now, let’s make the inside pop up mechanism.
Cut a strip measuring 0.5″ x 4.25″ and score it at 0.75″ and 2.75″ and 3.5″.
Step 7 :
Stick double-sided tape onto the scored parts as shown.
Place the the strip with 0.75″ scored side close to the fold of the card as shown .
Take out the backing of that part and close the card.
It will look like this:
Step 8:
Now turn the strip to the other side and fold it at the 2.75″ scored part, taking out the backing from the last scored part, close the card again (like before).
It will look like this:
Step 9:
The next step involved adhering the cluster of the colored images (obtained from step 5) onto our created pop up.
* Add details with a white pen to enhance your images *

Step 10 :
I stuck a piece of Vellum on the inside of the window to recreate a real window. I also added strips of black washi tape onto both sides of the front panel to add interest and stamped a sentiment from my stash on the bottom.
And our Window Pop-up Surprise card is ready.
I am sure you would want to make it for your loved ones. Would love to see your creations!

A Glowing 2019!

Hey Crafties!

Glow-in-the-dark is such an awesome invention right after the light bulb. Don’t both light up the dark! 😉

I have an hexagon easel card for today which, yes, you guessed it right- glows in the dark! Yay!

All the images were heat embossed with Wow Glow in the dark embossing powder.

It gives such a pretty no-line coloring effect!

The stamp set I used is Happy Village by Lawn Fawn.

I added an extra element (the house) inside the card to add dimension.

This is how it looks opened up :

Even the sentiment is heat embossed with Wow Glow in the dark embossing powder.

Just love how it glows at night!

The background is done using distress oxides and the hexagon cuttingdie is by Gina Marie Designs. The number stamp is by Itsy Bitsy.

Thank you for stopping by… Have a great day ahead!

For this card, I used the Donuts & Treats stamp set by Itsy Bitsy and colored the image with my Inktense pencils.

Inktense pencils are so bright and intense. Just love them!

The sentiment stamp is Painted Inspiration by Altenew with Hero Arts dye ink.

This stamp set has such bold beautiful sentiments.
