My Pop-Up Greetings Card today would be perfect for a special lady in your life and I dedicate mine today to my Mother-in-Law, Monica whose birthday was in this month. She was a very kind and caring lady.
I found this beautiful Greetings Card on YouTube recently under a lady called Deb Valder who made this card well over a year ago, but I have since seen a few others similar to this on YouTube so I am not really sure now who was the inventor of this card. It is a BIG thank you from me to the original inventor!
This is a really good size card measuring 6 x 6″ and I really love how this card is really very easy to make yet looks stunning! For this card you will need a pretty Stamp Set that includes some sentiments which makes it so economical to make and Blooms & Wishes is perfect for this. Then all you will need is some card and ink. Of course it goes without saying that you will need a Trimmer and Scoring Tool and the Stampin’ Up Trimmer Board is perfect for this as it has both the cutting tool and scoring tool in one. There is also a compartment underneath it to store your spare blades and other bits and bobs.
My original card uses Island Indigo, Pool Party and Whisper White Cardstock with the same colour inks and a bit of Garden Green Ink for the leaves around the flowers. I made my own envelope for this card too so used my Envelope Punch Board and a piece of Stampin’ Up Envelope Paper which has been cut to 9 1/2 x 9 1/2″ and scored on the EPB at 4 3/4″. In my video I have used the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set and Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White Cardstock with the same matching ink colours. I think you will agree that this is indeed an extremely pretty card.

Pool Party/Pink Pirouette Cardstock cut at 5 1/2 x 11 1/2″ (14 x 29.2 cm)
Place in Stampin’ Up Trimmer on the short side. Position the Cardstock at 3/4″ and using the CUTTING tool cut from 1 3/4″ down to 9 3/4″ (4.5 cm, to 24.7 cm) Repeat this cut on the opposite side.
Now SCORE on the same piece of card on the LONG side and SCORE at 3 3/4″ and 7 3/4″ (TOP and BOTTOM only)
Score at 5 3/4″ (all the way from the TOP to the BOTTOM). Leaving the Cardstock in the Trimmer on the LONG side go back to the 1 3/4″ mark and score between the cut marks, then score at 2 1/2″, 9″ and 9 3/4″ (This forms part of the mountain and valley folds described in my YouTube video).
