Baby Blocks Pop-up Card






This pop-up baby card be made with 2 different die sets. A couple of years ago crafter’s Companion sold a die called Pop-up Confetti box. This is the one I used for the card because it was in my stash. Currently, Karen Burniston is selling a die called #1226 Surprise Cube Pop -up and it also makes pop up cubes that can be used for the card. I got the idea for this card from the Karen Burniston die. It had not occurred to me to glue the cube in the card and use it as a pop-up until I saw her do it. She also sells a smaller rectangle pop-up for cards which I think is genus. I used that one in my December 30 video. I love cards with moving pieces and am a huge fan of her dies.
