- Have you ever made something so cool together with someone else that you wished there were a commemorative birthday card for it?
- Do you love pop-up paper crafts?
- Are you not easily despaired by exact mm measurements and craft knives or alternatively have the patience for multiple trial and error?
I'll explain some basic techniques for pop-up cards, and show you the extremely specific design example of my card in more detail. I'll also show you a slightly more transferable way to use one of the individual pop-up designs (the cake) in a card.
Step 1: Materials
For one DIN A5 card (double postcard size) I bought:
3DIN A4 pages of white cardstock, 300g/m2
2 DINA5 pages of contrasting background colours, in my example grey and light brown.
1 extra tacky birthday card (optional alternative: 1 DIN A4 page of contrasting colour)
I also used:
all purpose glue
