Hi there! Nichol here today with an interactive birthday card. I adore the adorable puppies in the Mama Elephant Playful Pups Stamp Set and coordinating Playful Pups Creative Cuts dies. I added birthday hats from the Ella & Friends Stamp Set from Mama Elephant for a sweet birthday card. The stitched rectangle, scallop rectangle, and banner from the Basic Die Creative Cuts die collection made the perfect background and place to stamp the greeting on the front of the card. The Pop Up Trio Creative Cuts dies are so easy to use and make the inside of the card interactive!
I die cut a 6x6 sheet of patterned paper using the stitched rectangle die from the Basic Dies Creative Cuts collection. I layered a die cut scallop rectangle over the top to mute the intensity of the patterned paper.
I stamped four of the pups and the food dish from the Playful Pups Stamp Set and four birthday hats from the Ella & Friends Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock and colored them in with Copic Markers. I die cut all the images with the coordinating Playful Pups Creative Cuts dies and Ella & Friends Creative Cuts dies.
I adhered three of the pups and hats to the front of the card as shown. I added Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen to the hats, the black Sakura Gel Pen to the eyes on the pups and Glossy Accents on the noses.
I die cut a banner from the 6x6 sheet of patterned paper. I stamped a greeting from the Playful Pups Stamp Set on the banner using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the greeting with white embossing powder.
I trimmed a sheet of red cardstock 1/4" smaller than the inside of the A2 sized card. I used two of the Pop Up Trio Creative Cuts dies to the score line of the red cardstock to create the interactive pop ups. I adhered the red cardstock to the inside of the white card.
I stamped a another greeting from the Playful Pups Stamp Set using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the greeting with white embossing powder. I added stamped paw prints next to the greeting using red ink.
I glued the last pup, birthday hat, and dog dish to the pop ups to complete the card.
