Botanical Tea Pop Up Birthday Card

Botanical Tea Pop Up Birthday Card with Natural Burlap String Bow

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Natural Burlap String is one of my crafting staples!  I love it and use it so much that I purchase it by the spool.  It’s a great way to add texture to a card design.  It looks fabulous when threaded through a button.  Wrap it around a card to create a border.  Tie a little loopy string bow and add it to a bow cluster.  The possibilities are endless!  I used Natural Burlap String to make the fluffy string bow on this Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Pop Up Birthday Card, and I just love the way it turned out.

Burlap string comes in a rainbow of colors, but I love the rustic feel of this big, loopy Natural Burlap String Bow. It really sets off the soft pinks and blues in the paper collection.

A Zutter Bow-it-All Tool makes quick work of tying this bow style.

The inside of the card has a lovely pop up gift card holder!

The best thing about Natural Burlap String, apart from it’s amazing versatility, is that it is also incredibly affordable.  You can’t beat that!

I hope I’ve shared some tips and tricks that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Feeling Run Down?  Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Pop Up Get Well Card

Hello, G 45’ers!  I created this whimsical and fun Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Pop Up Get Well card back in January for CHA…and I’m so excited that I finally get to share it with you today.

Winter brings with it a flurry of colds, flus and viruses. You might not be able to send chicken soup to a friend who’s knocked out with a nasty bug, but you can let them know that you care and lift spirits with a handmade get well card.

I’ve always loved the whimsical wind up lady from Olde Curiosity Shoppe.  Every time I see her, I think, “Feeling run down?”  That’s why I chose her as the focal image for this interactive pop-up card.  It’s so much fun to open this card and find a pop up panel of mini envelopes decorated with fussy cut butterflies.  It’s the perfect pick me up!

Here’s a Quick Tip

I love Staple Laser Cut Tags and I use them all the time.  But  have you ever been stumped over what to do with those odd letters on the Alpha Tags?  Heres’ how I use them.  Just ink the edges and tuck into your card design to add an extra layer.  The beautiful shaped edge and vintage grommet add so much to a card!

Color Match!

Color plays a huge role in my designs so I always try to be careful to choose embellishments that are color matched.  Since Olde Curiosity Shoppe uses a lot of blue and green, I chose embellishments that enhanced the paper.   The flower has the same tones of green and blue that are found in the paper.  To color match the  metal embellishments, I tapped them with Vintaj Patina Moss Paint.  Now they pop off the card base and make all the greens and blues come together harmoniously.

Decorating the interior of this card was a blast!  I found an online tutorial for this panel pop up card mechanism, then took it to the next level by die cutting Tammy Tutterow mini envelopes to go on each panel.  Fussy cut butterflies add a touch of whimsy and a feeling of movement.  Imagine how much fun it would be to open this card!  You can tuck a tea bag, throat lozenge or cheery note into each pocket for even more fun.

A hand written sentiment adds a wonderful, personal touch to any card.  After fussy cutting some bottles and borders from the paper collection, I added them to Staples ATC tags.

These little tags on the inside tie in with the large tag on the cover and serve to unify the design.
