Gift Stack Pop Up Birthday Card

My husband’s birthday is December 31st, so I decided that this was the perfect time to create a birthday card with three of my favorite dies – two from Elizabeth Craft and one from Impression Obsession.

  • Elizabeth Craft 782 Agatha Edges
  •  IO-DIE239-S Gift Stack Cutout


  • Pebbles 751396 Black Dot Cardstock
  • The Paper Cut Black Licorice
  • Georgia Pacific White
  • 2.5” wide Scor-Tape
  • Zva Self-adhesives crystals, small
  •  Sparkle N Sprinkle Cloud Nine microfine glitter
  •  WeR Memory Keepers scoring paper trimmer 
  • WeR Memory Keepers Evolution die cutting machine

The Birthday Pop Up card is a Karen Burniston creation and is absolutely brilliant. I started with a 4.25” x 11” black card base, scored it at the 5.5” and folded it over. I then took a 12” x 12” piece of American Craft’s Pebbles Black Dot Cardstock and cut it to 4” x 11”. This is part of the Pebbles Basics collection and features a gingham print on one side and polka dots on the other

I used both sides of the cardstock to create this card. I cut out the stars with a white cardstock background on Scor Tape and dipped them in my Microfine Glitter to add some twinkle to the project. Of course, the photo doesn’t do the bling justice, but it works great.

I love, love, love the Impression Obsession Gift Stack cut-out and discovered that it works well in a variety of format. I used it as a “window” cut on some of my Christmas cards. And I discovered that it works great as a 3-D pop up on this card. I can’t wait to use it on some scrapbook layouts!

Be sure to check out my grandbaby girl’s birthday card on January 28th. Her Birthday pop up card looks totally different. Oh! And HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
