Something very special happened last Sunday. My gorgeous mum turned 80 and we went out for a special lunch to celebrate her birthday. Happy birthday Mum!!!
Mum is an amazing crafter and we love to craft together when we can, which unfortunately is not often enough as life and work keeps getting in the way! I love making special cards for Mum because she really appreciates them, so I decided to make a fancy fold card I’ve never made before – a pop-up vase card!
Here is the front of the card, featuring the stunning free SALE-a-bration Dainty Flowers DSP available from this Thursday.
The 80 has been die cut using a new set of alphabet and number dies called Alphabet A La Mode Dies and the “Happy Birthday” sentiment is from the Something Fancy stamp set, both available from this Thursday in the January mini catalogue.
A little trick to create the “th” for 80th – stamp the “happy birthday” sentiment again and cut the “th” from the word “birthday”.
Inside the card is where the magic happens. In the video below you can see how as the card opens the vase of flowers pops up!
Here is the card folded flat, ready to open…
Halfway open …
Laid flat with the vase fully popped up…
The flowers in the vase are all die cut using the Dainty Delight dies and the beautiful sentiment inside the card comes from the Something Fancy stamp set.
A special card needs a special envelope – this was made using another sheet of the SALE-a-bration Dainty Flowers DSP.
Did you notice the gorgeous Brushed Brass Butterflies that embellish the card front? They work perfectly with this DSP!
I’ll be back tomorrow, Wednesday January 4, with the AWH Colour Creations team to showcase Pacific Point and some more gorgeous SALE-a-bration products.
I hope you can join us then.
