Big Hugs – Pivot Pop Up Card

Interactive cards take more time to create, but the results are almost always definitely worth the effort..I wanted to try making a pivot pop up card but make it simple rather than adding too many elements to it and make it over the top time consuming kind…well, it can be done….and here’s is my card..

Firstly, I ink blended the front panel as well as the inside of the card base using Distress Oxide inks…I have used squeezed lemonade, spiced marmalade, candied apple and black soot shades here…I also splattered a lot of water on both these blended backgrounds…
I started with the front panel by adding the stitched trails on it and then added a die cut oval frame…I adhered a hilly edge at the base of this oval for the elephant to stand on and then adhered this frame to the panel…I added the large scripty stamped and die cut sentiment below it…I adhered a couple of clouds as well and embellished this panel with tiny star sequins before adhering it to the card base..

Next, I die cut the pivot pop up mechanism and adhered it to the inside of my card…the base of this mechanism is die cut from white cardstock and the yellow pop up panel from Lawn Fawn really rainbow paper pack…I also added a the hilly edge at the base for all the animals to sit on..

On a separate piece of white card stock, I stamped and coloured in all the images I required for my card…I then cut them out by hand and placed them on my card…I added some die cut trees at the base and a party banner at the top..I also added a party hat for each of the animals…finally, I stamped the sentiments and a couple of hashtag stamps and the inside of my card was ready as well…

Pivot Pop Up Birthday Card

I have had an awesome time making this pivot pop up card…the Lawn Fawn die makes it super easy and so much fun…I had already seen how it works in a few youtube videos,but the very first time I opened my card after the pop up element was added inside it – I may have squealed like a happy¬† little child!!!

It was a bit hard to take pictures of how the pop up element works in this card so I’m sharing a video of my finished card first and a few photos as well…
For this card, I have used a plain white top fold card base and simply added a die cut striped purple paper from the LF Really Rainbow paper pack for the front panel…I adhered a coloured in giraffe image and stamped the sentiment directly on the panel…I have also added a little bird above that sentiment and to make the giraffe and the bird look bright and shiny,I applied some Nuvo glaze on them…

Now to the fun part…the pivot pop on the inside of the card…I just had to die cut and assemble the elements which was quite easy…but before I put it all together,I created the scene on the long pop up panel…I used Distress inks to create the background and the trees and then added the coloured in and cut out animals and the tiny die cut clouds…I also stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment on this panel…once this panel was ready,I first adhered the pop up mechanism at the center of the card inside and then adhered the panel to it…

I also added some die cut clouds and grass borders on the inside of the card as well as a tiny branch with a parrot on it and my card was ready..I did have to open and close it a few times so that the mechanism starts to work properly and after a while it did..
