Hello friends. I couldn’t resist making a baby pop up card with the Lawn Fawn Elephant Parade stamps after seeing the one Mona from the Lawn Fawn design team made (Baby themed pop-up box card with Mona). It was so damn cute!
Granted these pop up cards take a very long time to make so I made two! LOL. Actually I originally made this card for my mom to take to a baby shower but wanted to share it with you all and I just had to make a “masculine” and “feminine” card. Obviously you can make this in the color scheme the parents choose or go with a gender neutral color if you don’t know their colors.
I used C00 & C3, R20 & R30 for the elephants; C00 & C3, R20 for the mice; and BG000, Y000, & R000 (blue card) and BG10, Y000 & R000 (pink card) for the bubbles; Y00 & E55 for the peanuts; BG000 & 0, B32 & B37, Y02 & Y15, BG11 & BG34 (blue card) and BG10 & 0, G12 & G82, Y000 & Y02, R00 & R20 (pink card) for the bottles; BG11 & BG10 (blue card) and R000 & R00 (pink card) for the banners; Y00, Y02 & Y15 for the crown; G12 & G82 for the bow; Y000, Y00, & Y02 for the balloons; and Y000, Y02 & Y15, B32 & B37 (blue card) and R00 & R20, Y000 & Y02, G12 & G82 (pink card) for the rattles.
All images were die cut using the coordinating dies.
These cards fold flat to fit into a regular A2 envelope. My balloons go outside the box top so I made a custom envelope to fit it better.
Thanks for reading this post. I hope I’ve inspired you to give this fun pop up baby card a try for yourself. Leave comments or questions below or feel free to email.
Hello friends. In honor of Pride month I made these two rainbow cards using the Catherine Pooler Designs Retro Love Dies. This die produces a very cool sentiment that allows you to use the word by itself, with the shadow or even cut out an outline of the word. You can also use it to create shaker cards.
For this first card, I cut a piece of Neenah 100lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base, as well as another piece cut to 4 x 5-1/4″. I added double sided tape to the panel and then cut 1/2 inch strips of colored paper from DCWV Double-Sided Mat Stack 4.5″X6.5″ Brights (may be discontinued – link to similar stack below), Stampin’ Up! Pacific Point 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock (retired), and Stampin’ Up! Highland Heather 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock.
I trimmed the excess paper and die cut the word “LOVE” from the center of the card. I die cut the word 3x more from Simon Says Stamp 100# Black Cardstock so I can stack them and create dimension and added a piece of the black cardstock behind it.
Hello friends. Father’s Day is in a few weeks and today I’m sharing a masculine card that was so much fun to make and didn’t actually take too long. The most time consuming part of this card is the heat embossing. And as you can see mine didn’t come out perfect but I left it so you can see that things don’t always work out how we want and that’s ok!
Hello friends. I had to use the free stampset, Furever Friends, I received from Lawn Fawn with the purchase of products from the new Spring release. The kitties and mice are so cute! They’re very simple images but so sweet.
Hello friends. It’s time to start my Easter series! It’s going to be a Lawn Fawn Easter this year. I got lots of goodies from the new release and happy to begin sharing some creations with you. Lots of cute stamps and dies in this release!
I colored the images with Copic Markers. I used N1, N2, N4, and R20 and blender for the bunnies; RV25 and RV55 for the egg; YG25 & YG17, YR07 & YR14 for the carrots; and R20, YR14 & YR07, Y11 & Y15 for the butterfly. I used the coordinating dies to die cut.
Hello friends. I am in love with the Ranger Simon Hurley Lunar Pastes! So many beautiful colors and I love the metallic sheen too! Need to get more of them! I used it a stencil created from shaped dies. So much fun to use!
For all the above bags, you can just decorate one side or do both sides if you like. I added the trim all the way around on some of the bags.

Hi friends. A quick way to create a dimensional background with little effort is to use an embossing folder. We all have a bunch of embossing folders we bought when it was all the rage to emboss everything and now they sit in a drawer or craft room shelf collecting dust. Am I right?!? Come on, you know it’s true??? LOL Well thankfully they are coming back in fashion and there are so many techniques you can do with them. Today we are keeping it simple — just some ink and a blender. No fancy tools needed either.
For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 8-1/2 x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. Then cut a piece measuring 4 x 5-1/4″ and embossed with the Stampin’ Up! Cobwebs 3D Embossing Folder (retired); any spiderweb embossing folder will work here.
