The Cutting Cafe Inspiration-Popup Cards

It's time for some Cutting Cafe Inspiration!   This time around we're sharing some popup cards with you!  I used the Assorted Popup Cards Templates and Cutting Files.  This one comes with a few choices for the popup on the inside ... you'll have to wait a few minutes to see which one I chose... don't you peek now!

I decided to make the front of the card a shaker.  The front is blank and you can really do whatever you want with it... I used a die to cut the frame and a clear PML card with the gold sentiment on it already for the shaker window.

I decorated this corner with some flowers... the white and pink were premade flowers from my stash and the red one is from the Layered Flowers Cutting File... I like to cut a bunch to have on hand...

Love this PML card... I should tell you that I made this card special for a co-worker... she's turning 75 this year and will be retiring soon so we wanted to make this celebration extra special and I decided that called for a special card...

There's the inside!  I used the cake... you can also choose a cupcake, a three tiered present, and a couple of flower options... I uploaded the card base pieces separately and saved them... this style you could use for a lot of different shaped popups and I wanted the card at the ready for the next time I want one...

I thought the Live Beautifully papers from CTMH... this woman is a girly girl and I just know she'll love all of the flowers, sparkle and these colors... and the gold!!  I decided instead of adding the actual numbers anywhere I'd just load up my cake with LOTS of candles... it kind of makes the point without shoving it in your face I think... 

I'm playing along with the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge for the Month of May to use the Live Beautifully paper pack.

For the sentiment I used the Everyday Words Stamp Set from The Cutting Cafe Shop... I love it because you can put together lots of different sentiments... I had a stamp with this sentiment on it, but the font was so small... I was able to build it with the Everyday Words set.. 

And another one of these flowers.. I love that they have some stitch marks down the middle of the petals... it's a great way to bend the petals to give them a little dimension...

So thanks for stopping by!  I'm so happy to see you again.  Be sure to come back soon!  And on the 21st you can check out all of the Design Team's popup card creations!  In the meantime, why don't you join the Cutting Cafe Be Inspired Group on Facebook here so you don't miss anything!
