Spring Birthday Card by Suzanne Cannon

Happy Saturday!  We meet again.  It’s Suzanne back again today with another conversation with her craft supplies…  Some of these supplies have been calling to me for a long time, others I had to coerce to come out to play.  I promised them grand things!

Here is a birthday card for the people in your life who were born in the spring.  They’re going to love the Magnolia flower placed on a rustic wooden surface and displayed on an easel card.

Here is how you make this card —

Pop it Ups Wednesday with Sandy – Bonjour

May 11, 2016

Bonjour my friends, it’s Sandy Diller here. We have a trip planned to Paris this summer so I wanted to share a little of my excitement with you by showing how I made this Eiffel Tower Pop Stand Card. Part of the fun of this card is that you can see the inside of the card through the window but you really don’t get the full effect until it is opened.

Pop it Ups Christmas in Paris

October 3, 2015

Happy Saturday, everyone! It’s Shelly with you today to share a pretty, French-inspired Christmas card using a variety Pop it Ups dies. One of the things I love about Pop it Ups is how easy they are to mix and match. One of my favorites is the Lots of Pops dies – there are so many ways you can use it!

shelly hickox pop it ups joyeaux noelHow gorgeous is that glittery Eiffel Tower?! I love how well it pairs with the Lots of Pops accessories, and of course, with the Paris Edges die set. While this card might look complicated, it’s actually quite simple. Here’s how I made it:

IMG_35761. Begin by cutting a 12″ x 5″ piece of cardstock. Crease down the center, then cut the pop up element with the Lots of Pops die. Because I wanted a contrasting paper on the back, I cut another piece of paper to 6″ x 5″ and cut the bottom edge with the Lots of Pops die, aligning the center points with the bottom edge of the cardstock. Trim to fit around the pop-up, then train the folds and adhere the contrasting paper to the top. Cut the top edge using one of the edge dies from the Agatha Edges die set (not shown).

IMG_35552. Apply Elizabeth Craft Designs Double Sided Adhesive to a piece of beige cardstock, leaving the release paper adhered on one side. With the release paper side up, die cut the Eiffel Tower. Remove release paper and cover adhesive with Champagne Gold Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish with your finger and tap to remove excess. Set aside.

IMG_35803. Cut the elements for the inside of the card using the dies shown above. The banners and pole are included in the Lots of Pops die set, the fleur de lis border is from the Paris Edges die set, and the flourish is from the Agatha Edges set.

IMG_35824. Adhere the banner poles to the narrow pop-up ledge on either side of the main pop-up element. Glue the banners to a length of baker’s twine and tie to top of poles. Add red adhesive pearls to the Eiffel Tower as shown and adhere the tower to the main pop-up. Adhere the red flourish to the top of the card as shown, trimming to fit if necessary (I didn’t want the text on the paper to be hidden by the flourish).


5. Create a pocket on the lower half of the card by applying glue to the outer edges of the fleur de lis Paris Edges border, leaving the top edge open, and adhere to card. Cut elements from decorative paper and insert into pocket. Glue lace trim to top. Note – I also added a small fleur de lis cut from glitter paper to the small pop-up as seen above.

Adhere to card, being sure to avoid getting adhesive on the pop-up mechanism. Embellish with ribbon and a length of lace and your card is complete! The completed card is a top fold 5″ x 6″ card that can be mailed in an A7 (5×7) envelope.

Even though this card is a Christmas theme, all you need to do is change out the paper and you can make it work for any occasion – a special birthday, bon voyage, anniversary…the possibilities are only limited by your imagination!

A Flourish Thank You card

August 25, 2014


Good morning crafty friends,

This is Rita here today and would like to share my ‘Thank You’ card with you. I hope you have a nice cup of coffee or tea in your hand so you can sit back and enjoy my tutorial.

This is how you can create this simple yet elegant card:

1. Cut two card bases (front and back) at 6″ wide x 6″ long and secure the Agatha Edges onto the base with washi tape. Die cut one at a time.


2. Repeat each side rotating the two different Agatha Edges for both front and back of our card. Set them aside.


3. For the inside of the card, cut the card base at 4″ wide x 9″ long and score at 4.5″. Adhere the inside layer to the back of the front card base and mark the cut line on the back card base, then trim along the cut mark.


4. Adhere the inside layer to the back of the back card base and test that the card can open and close easily without hitting any other section.


5. Using a darker card base, die cut the Flourish with Flowers, Thank You sentiment and the larger flower of the Crystal Flower set. Using a lighter card base, die cut two circles from the Accordion Circle Card set and the larger flower of the Crystal Flower Overlay Set 2. The little tag will go with a small gift.

Here you see all the die cuts for our card.


6. Adhere the Flourish with Flowers die cuts onto the front of the card base and place foam squares onto the circle die cuts, which will bring the card to a 3-dimensional feeling. Adhere the ‘Thank You’ die cut to the front of the card.


7. Adhere the smaller circle onto the larger circle with foam squares.


8. Adhere both Crystal flower and overlay to complete our card.

As always, I would like to thank you for following my tutorial and I hope that you enjoyed reading it as much as I did creating it.

hugs, Rita

Hoppy & Lucy

July 7, 2014

Hello my crafty friends, it’s Raquel here today. I am very excited about Elizabeth Craft Designs’ 2014 Summer Release! To continue that excitement, I have created a card with some new and currently available dies.  Let’s get crafty.

1.  Cut blue paper at 4.25 x 11 and score at 5.5 for your backing card.

2.  Cut the largest Lucy Label (label only) from green paper. Cut two of the middle-sized Lucy Label from white paper, leave the die on and trace around the edge with a fine point marker then stamp sentiments.

3.  Cut one oval using the Oval accessory die from the Katie Label Accordion from green pattern paper and snip a triangle out to resemble a lily pad.

4.  Using Hoppy the Frog, cut two shadow layers of Hoppy from dark green paper. Cut two detail layers of Hoppy from green. Cut two sets of eyes from white paper. Cut 4 flies from black paper. Cut two of the mouth areas using the detail layer from red paper.

5.  Using Props 1, cut two lips from red paper and one pair of glasses from black paper.

6.  Adhere Hoppy as shown in picture and set aside these pieces.

7.  For Hoppy on the inside, cut off his legs and glue them to the side of his body to resemble a frog jumping. Adhere acetate to the lens of the black glasses (from step 5) then adhere to Hoppy.  Apply Crystal Effects to lips and mouth of Hoppy if desired, then set Hoppy aside to dry.

8.  Cut pattern paper at 4.25 x 11 and score at 5.5, then cut pop up using Lucy Label. Use an edge from Agatha Edges to cut 1.25 off both ends of the pattern paper and adhere the pieces you just cut off to the inside of backing card (green polka dot). Adhere pattern paper cut with Lucy Label to backing card.

9.  Cut the largest Lucy Label (label only) from blue paper and adhere to label on the inside of card.

10.  Cut two edge dies from Agatha Edges from blue paper and adhere to card as shown.

11.  Cut two sets of Happy Birthday, adhere them together for added dimension then adhere to bottom of card.

12.  Adhere Hoppy to the top bump of the Lucy Label as shown.

13.  Adhere remaining pieces to front of card as shown.

I hope you have “Hopped” right along in the tutorial and feel inspired to give it a try.
