Hello, friends! I finally joined the Pop-Up craze! I am normally not much of an interactive card maker, but this die set from Lawn Fawn is so fun and has endless possibilities. I paired it with a digital stamp that I just bought from Jane’s Doodles. This is a special stamp because the proceeds all go to Yana Smakula in support of Ukraine.
Making the Card
I am not going to go much into the process of making the pop-up elements because there are endless videos on YouTube showing you how to make them. Here is the video that Lawn Fawn put out to introduce the product – it shows all the steps. The hardest part in making this specific card was coloring the images, so that tells you something! I colored the images with my Copic markers.
I take that last part back – the hardest part of this card was deciding between using the grass die or the hill die that comes with the pop-up set. I initially adhered hill die cuts to my center tabs. Then I changed my mind and added grass, but that was after I had already added the little house and trees. I added a second, shorter layer of grass because I wasn’t thrilled with the first. It’s a bit of a hot mess, if I do say so myself, but that’s okay. Since this is my first pop-up, I have learned to take a little bit more time to decide exactly what I want to adhere to those tabs!
You’ll notice in the photos that I made a score line down the sides of the Jane’s Doodle image. I matched those score lines to the platform so that it would nestle inside properly. Basically I used this stamped image in place of the Add-On die that Lawn Fawn sells.
I love how this card folds up and fits into an envelope. Such a fun surprise for the recipient when they take it out!
The Lawn Fawn set does come with dies that create a ribbon and bow to finish off the platform. I just used two thin strips of black card stock that I cut on my trimmer and then added a sweet little bow from Waffle Flower. I also added one of the sentiments from the digital stamp set to the front tab. It happened to fit perfectly!
That’s it for today. Thanks for joining me, and I hope this card brought a smile to your face!
