Happy Birthday! x3

Hello Friends!     

Edited: Sept. 23, 2017. FB Live started at 9:00 a.m. on FB Business Page. 

A free pattern was given to those who attended live. Thank you so much for your support!

If you missed it, the pattern can be purchased here.

I needed to create a couple of birthday cards for my nephews and my sister.

I have not played with the pop up twist in a while, and wanted to be different. I wanted a WOW factor for my nephews and my sister (who is also a cardmaker) so I decided to work on a Happy Birthday insert to work with the pop up twist. After fiddling around with the measurements, I finally got it to work.

Card 1:
Nathan turned 19. His goals are to become a certified mechanic. He has been dwindling on beefing his car, so I made this card using the Lift Me Up set. This set reminds me of GO FOR YOUR DREAMs.  
Here is the inside of the card.

Although there is some effort in fiddling around with the pop up twist to make sure that the elements are not creeping out the sides. I am constantly folding and positioning the hot air balloons.

I brought the Hot Air Balloons and clouds inside the card. Below, I inserted money so that he can purchase whatever he wants.

Stamps: Lift Me Up
Inks: Pacific Point
Papers: Whisper White, Pacific Point, Birthday Memories DP, Basic Black, Lemon Lime Twist, Lift Me Up Coordinating Dies
Accessories: Big Shot, Softly Falling EF, Mini Dimensionals, Regular Dimensionals, Large Numbers Framelits
Personal Files: e-Cutter, Happy Birthday Pop Up

Card 2:
Owen turned 16. I know he plays a lot of soccer still, so this card was perfect for him. I don't have any soccer stamp set so I was going through my stash of embossing folders and dies, and came up with my own background.

The soccer ball was remnants from the dies, so I just used a 2" circle punch to create the soccer ball. The grass was cut and tucked the soccer ball between the grass.

Inside also contains the Happy Birthday Pop Up, and then I printed soccer ball images and fussy cut them out. Behind the pattern paper also holds money so he too can buy whatever he wishes.

Stamps: Love Sparkles
Inks: Basic Black
Papers: Whisper White, Basic Black, Birthday Memories Suite DP, Old Olive
Accessories: Big Shot, 2" circle punch, Hexagon Die, Honeycomb EF
Personal Files: Soccer Ball, Grass, Happy Birthday Pop Up, e-Cutter

Card 3:
And then my wonderful sister! I won't mention how old she is. She just loves to cook and bake.

When I assembled the inside of the card, I realized that I should have done the background in a different color. Needless to say, still happy with results!

Instead of giving her money, I gave her 5 precut cards so that she can make her own Pop Up Twist for someone special.
Stamps: Birthday Delivery, Beautiful You,
