It’s Sandy here with a Pop it Ups card celebrating my Dad’s 93rd birthday. I’m so fortunate to have both of my parents with me. They are in their 90’s and living independently near me. I have many birthdays on my May calendar but none more important than my Dad’s. I made this card for him and I’m sure he will get a little chuckle out of it.
Here’s how it came together –
Finished size of this card is 5.5″ X 5.5″ with a top fold.
- Cut card base 5.5″ X 11″, crease in center.
- Cut decorator panels – one 4.5″ X 4.25″, one 4.25″ X 4″, one 2.25″ X 3″, one 2″ X 2.75″. These can be any other size you like.
- Cut decorator panels for inside of card, one 4.5″ X 2.5″ and one 4.5″ X 2.25″.
- Using Jinks the Monkey die set, cut out one Jinks.
- Using Cake Pop Up card, cut one cake on the center fold of the inside panel of card. Inside panel on this card was cut 9″ X 4.5″ then creased in center. Cut decorator pieces.
- Using Occasions Clear Stamps, stamp “Happy Birthday to You” on white cardstock and cut out using Labels and Circles die.
- Using Labels and Circles die, cut out backing for stamped greeting.
- Using Twist Circle Pop Up, cut one “Hi”.
- Using Props 2, cut two balloons with strings and bow, one party hat and one party favor.

I think Dad will love it. I certainly got a chuckle. Mary
