Birthday Basics Pop-Up Presents Card

Yesterday I shared my birthday frame with you and today I have a super fun matching card to share with you!  This card was inspired by fellow demonstrators Lisa Young and Rose Coleman!

The card itself it pretty simple and straight forward.  A little embossing, some simple stamping and a touch of DSP (the Birthday Basics DSP!).  The magic happens on the inside of this card!  Have a look!

Isn't it fantastic!  The stack of presents pops up and is a super fun surprise for the recipient of the card!

I just love it!  And, the pop-up part could really be anything...a birthday cake or wedding cake, a sand castle...the possibilities are endless!

It looks like it would be complicated, but it's actually really easy.  Here are some measurements and then there's a video for you to see how it comes together.  Remember that the solid lines indicate cutting lines and the dotted ones indicate scoring lines.  The measurements are for the pop-up insert for the card and it's made to fit on a standard quarter-fold card base (4 1/4 x 5 1/2).

And, now, the video!

Remember, until the end of the month DSP is buy 3 get one FREE!  You can find all the details on this special in my online store.  But, before you head to my online store, grab the shopping list so you can order everything you need to create this card at home!
