Birthday pop up card

Well, I decided to try my hand at a couple of new things. First of all, I designed a card in my Gypsy and I used the Imagine application. THEN….as if that wasn’t crazy enough (ha ha) I decided to make this one into a pop up card.

The Gypsy layout with the Imagine was no problem at all. I thought it was pretty straight forward…just like using the on-screen Imagine. I wish the Imagine application for the Gypsy was more like the Cricut application and we could move stuff around, but it’s not so I’m not going to dwell on it! Some of these folks spend a lot of time being mad!

I used the sentiment from a cricut cartridge (can’t remember which one) and then used the Imagine Better Together to fill the image with color. I think that’s a great feature because you can coordinate your sentiment with the colors/patterns of the Imagine image that you use.

The inside of the card is the butterfly and flower from Better Together (Imagine). I printed them in layers and then used a dimensional adhesive dot to make them pop out a bit. I had directions for the pop up card but I just kinda winged it. I was in a hurry and didn’t want to read directions. One mistake I made is that I should’ve put the pop up image a little higher on the pop up mechanism. But, it works, so I’m going with it!

I just found Stickles, so I am a bit of a Stickles freak right now! I am bling’ing everything right now.

I am hoping to try out the pop up cake card and the waterfall card this week. The kids are on Spring Break and it’s raining. I hear tales of warmer weather coming this week and I am anxiously awaiting said weather!

Have a crafty day….
