Graphic 45 Cafe Parisian Pop-Up Card: The Best Things in Life Are Sweet!
Hello, G45’ers! Have you ever heard of a pop up restaurant? They are becoming quite a craze. Also known as supper clubs, these eateries operate out of a private home, club vacant factory or some other temporary location. Well, today I have a Graphic 45 Cafe Parisian Pop Up Card to share with you.
Ooh-la-la! Cafe Parisian is one scrumptious paper collection! Having never made a pop up card in my life, this project was quite a challenge for me. But I think I might be hooked on this fun style of card, so you might be seeing more in the future!
This portfolio style card measures about 6.25″ square with a magnetic side flap opening. Working with these papers is a sweet experience! As someone who loves to create desserts, it is right up my alley. It was such fun to add special details to this card, like the bead filled spoon, Staples ornate keys, cup of cappuccino, delicate Petaloo Flowers and wooden Eiffel Tower.
I found one of the original G45 Ornate Door Plates in my stash and painted it white to match the delightfully shabby chic vibe of this gorgeous paper.
Graphic 45 Cafe Parisian Pop Up Card: Come and dine!
Fussy cutters will love working with this collection. Just look at all those tantalizing treats!
May I invite you in for some coffee and a sweet?
Perhaps you’d like to sit beneath this pink striped parasol.
Or do you prefer to dine in the rose garden?
I couldn’t agree more! Especially if you have a little tray of tea cakes at your side!
There was a pretty steep learning curve involved in creating this card. The Brave Boots came out of the Closet of Shame and they did not let me down!
I think I watched at least 100 YouTube how to make a pop up videos! LOL
This whole collection reminds me of a darling French Pastry Shop that Dale and I used to visit when we were newlyweds in St. Augustine, Florida. We were poor as street urchins, but would save our pennies to share a treat every once in a while. Such sweet memories!
Here’s a view from the top…so you can see all the various pop up mechanisms that make the card work.
If you’ve never tried a pop up card, I will not lie to you. It is challenging….but so worth the effort!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go find a cookie.
Thanks for stopping by!
