Birthday Pop-Up

Good morning friends of Dies R Us ~ Do you have a special birthday that you want to celebrate with more than just a typical card?  Birgit here with you today and I've got a fun pop-up card for you.

Let's start with the inside of the card first.
Elizabeth Craft Designs offers many Pop-Up choices.  They're so easy to use and the design possibilities are endless.
I chose this wonderful cake plate from Elizabeth Craft Designs Christmas Pudding which I have enjoyed using since it was first released.  I add a bit of color using Distress inks, add the trim pieces and embellish with Stickles.  The Impression Obession Cake Set is colored in the same way and I added some Glossy Accents to the frosting.  YUM! 
These banner posts are part of the Lots of Pops die set.  I cut four of them so that I can double them up for stability.  This is what the banner will be strung through.

I cut several Poppystamps Celebration Balloons out of white card stock. I added color using Distress Inks and attached them to some balloon strings.  

Assemble the inside of the card using each pop up for different design elements.
I cut a Marianne Designs Basic Shapes Square, which was purchased during one of the many Dies R Us Special Order events.  (Be sure to sign up for their newsletter so you can be notified when these take place.)  

I like to keep the front of the card fairly simple.  I added this adorable Panda / Bear from Marianne Designs (another special order die) and gave him a little cupcake to hold and added a candle from the Impression Obsession Cake Set.  Two more Poppystamps Balloons float above the panda to add fun this special celebration.  

Here is a list of dies that I used that can be found at Dies R Us:

The other dies I used can be purchased during their next Special Order event so please sign up for their newsletter.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
