Summer: 2 Pop-Up Cards

Cards don't always have to be 2-dimensional. Why not create a pop-up card the beautiful @pinkpaislee collections. See how @lisafonseca1985 created two summer cards using the #summerlights and #turnthepage collections.

Hey friends, it’s Lisa back on the blog. This week is all about Summer and I created two beautiful and fun cards for you. If you want to surprise someone and take them to the beach for the weekend or spend a whole week under the palm trees, these are just perfect for you.

I started by choosing a cut file to make this pop-up cards. I cut out everything on white paper and used the pieces as a stencil to create the same pieces out of patterned paper. I didn’t let the machine cut them right out of the patterned paper because I wanted to figure out exactly which papers I wanted to use for each piece and I felt more comfortable doing it that way.

So, I cut the different pieces out of patterned paper by hand and put everything together. Then I chose some ephemera pieces and stickers that I used for the middle part of the box. I had three strips on which I could attach them. Then I decorated the rest of the cards using ephemera pieces, chipboard stickers, cardstock stickers, and fussy-cut elements.

You can fold the card together and fit it in an envelope and when you push the sides together it becomes 3D and pops open.

To make the cards more whimsical, I attached some butterflies and paper planes on a piece of wire and attached the wires to the box, giving the illusion as if they were flying. For this first card I used the Turn the Page collection. For the second card, I mainly used the Summer Lights collection.
