Photoplay Serendipity Pop Up Birthday Card Tutorial
Hello, Friends! It’s Make & Take Tuesday, and I have an adorable Photoplay Serendipity Pop Up Birthday Card Tutorial to share with you. This vibrant collection has a fresh, modern vibe that makes it perfect for an upbeat birthday greeting.
Our middle son’s birthday is in a few days, so I designed this card with him in mind. When Andrew was a toddler, we played a little game every night after dinner. He would snuggle up in my lap and I would say to him, “You’re my little strawberry shortcake.” Then he would say, “You’re my little apple pie.”
And the game would go on an on, each of us naming a favorite sweet treat in turn until one of us either repeated a dessert that had already been named or could not come up with a new idea for a treat. Many times we changed the name of the dessert by adding the words, “with a cherry on top.” That was the inspiration for this card design.
A Cherry on Top
This collection is what I call “happy paper.” We’ll take a little tour of the collection and all the ephemera bits that are available before we make the card together. I know how much you enjoy getting a sneak peek of new collections.
TIP: Try adding a circle or circular shapes to a square card and see what happens. The rounded edges soften the harder edges of the card base, and they help to make the focal image stand out.
A Peek Inside
And here’s the pop up! I’ll share my quick and easy, fool-proof pop-up method with you in the tutorial.
How cool is it that this collection prompted such a happy memory for me? I’m hoping Andrew will remember, too.
