Hey there! It's Ashley Cannon Newell on the blog today to share a fun card tutorial. If you make cards, you probably tend to focus all of your creative attention on the exterior of the card. But, what about the card's interior? I thought it would be fun to showcase an interactive pop-up technique. Since the card has an interactive function, I thought a video tutorial was the best way to show you how it all comes about.
Using the Party Day collection, I focused on birthday cards. I stamped the three candles and created the greeting using patterned paper.
What the recipient doesn't know is that inside, there are three cupcakes that will pop-up to surprise them!
Here is a video tutorial showing how I created the card interior...
I also created another card using the same technique.
For this card, I layered patterned papers and used standout layered stickers.
I added a bit of stitching around the borders to add a bit of texture.
On the interior, I used cardstock die-cuts from the emphemera pack.
The quotes are around the centered "Happy Birthday" greeting.
Creating an interactive card is very easy to do. I hope you will take time to finish a card interior too, and perhaps, even make a pop-up card! The main thing to remember to do is to have fun. I just know the card recipient will appreciate all of your efforts in creating such a fun, interactive card.
