Did you see the Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies in the Occasions Catalog?  They are on page 7.  You can use the dies to make a pop up card or trim the pop-up shape to use as a fun element on a card front, scrapbook page or other project.  For this card I did both – the Hip Hip Hooray! pops up on the inside and the Happy Birthday element was added to the front.


I got this card idea from one I found on Pinterest – it’s the best source for ideas and inspiration.  Another fun element is the black dots – those are actually the White Perfect Accents colored with a Black Sharpie Marker.  It adds a fun touch to this birthday card.

Here is a peek at the inside.

There is one change I would make to this card – I’d add a Bermuda Bay card stock layer on the inside of the card so it would show behind the pop-up.  With the white behind it it just doesn’t pop enough.  But I already had mine all glued down before I thought of that.  The next one I make will have that.

You can purchase the Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and the Party with Cake stamp set as a Bundle and save 15%.  I’ve been using them a lot right now to make birthday cards.  I’m starting a birthday club in March – if you would like to be part of it and receive a real hand-made card from me in the mail – then email me with your birthday and mailing address and I will add you to my list.

here is a video from my Stamper’s Club meeting where I show them how to use the thinlits and make this card.  I didn’t do any editing on the video – I think it turned out ok.  I’m working towards posting more videos and to start editing them too.  It’s a start.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I’ll try to be back soon.
