Fun and Easy Pop-Out Cards | VIDEO

Have you ever looked at a particular stamp and it brings back a memory of a technique or a special card that you had forgotten about it? This is what happened to me when I first saw the birdcage and crow image in the "Ghoulish Goodies" stamp set:

Years ago, my friend Alison Solven, who is also a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, shared a technique at a regional seminar for a 'pop up card'. Alison used an adorable stamp set with bird cages (LONG since retired) and I knew I wanted to make my card using the birdcage in the "Ghoulish Goodies" stamp set. I also pulled in products from the incredible "Magic in this Night" Suite

This 'pop up' technique is surprisingly easy to do but it sure packs a "WOW" factor! 

Here's my video tutorial for you:


  • Crumb Cake card stock: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", folded in half for card base ; 4" x 5 1/4" for front layer
  • Whisper White card stock: 8 1/4" x 5 1/4", for the inside layer. Use a pencil to draw a line up the centre at the 4 1/8" mark (along the 8 1/4" side). Repeat on each end at 2 1/16th. These pencil lines will help you to line up the images when you stamp them so that they are placed along the crease lines of the cardstock.

Supply List:

Here's my Christmas version using the pop-up technique. I also went landscape, rather than portrait, so that you could see the difference...
