MFT July Release Countdown Day 4



Day 4 of My Favorite Things July Release Countdown features Birdie Brown's
Beary Special Birthday and some fun Pop Up dies. If you've ever made pop up
cards before, these new dies will make your crafting life so much easier!

Here's the outside of the card which was decorated simply with patterned paper
and a stamped sentiment from Big Birthday Sentiments.


And here's the inside. I had so much fun creating this card!
Aren't these bears the sweetest?


A panel of white card stock 5" by 8" was ink distressed with three colors of
Distress inks and spattered with water, then folded in half. I placed two of the
pop up dies along the fold and ran it through my die cutting machine.


 Gently pull the die cut portion forward while you close the card to form the
pop up feature. Three bears were adhered to the front of the pop up strips.
When the card is closed, everything lies flat, but when opened, the bears pop up
and you get this great little scene. So.much.fun!

Visit today's countdown post at My Favorite Things to see more from the
design team and don't forget to leave a comment there for a chance to win
a $100 MFT gift voucher!

  1. Thank you for explaining the pop up feature. It is hard for me to see on my screen exactly how it's done. I love the use of bright colors on this card and the fact that there is a scene inside the simple exterior of the card
