Pop Up Cards

Craftwork Cards recently brought out some pop up cards.  These are fun and easy to make and look really impressive.

Here's a birthday card which I made using the Flower Shop kit.  This kit contains printed paper panels which you cut out and add to the box.  There are also die cut flowers and two different sizes of pop up box - this one is made with the larger of the two.

I also used some die cut white flowers in addition to the coloured ones in the kit.

I added Stickles glitter glue to the centre of the Candi to give the card some extra sparkle.

The beauty of these cards is that they fold flat to go into an envelope and so the recipient gets a lovely surprise when they open up the boxes.

Long Time, No Post!

I can't believe it's been so long since I posted!  I'm sharing a birthday card today which I have made for a friend using the Opulence Collection from Craftwork Cards.  This is a really versatile selection and is suitable for men's cards too which is always a bonus.

I cut my own bunting and added letters from the collection to it.  The letters are attached with foam pads to give a little depth.

Here's a picture of one of the pin wheels - the image doesn't show this but the numbers are cut from card which is actually embossed with a paisley patter so it works well with the papers.

I'll no doubt be in trouble when this is received but Happy Birthday Gary, hope you have a great day xx

That's all from me for now but I will post again very soon.
