Pop-Up Cards

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Earlier this summer, I received a copy of Pop-Up Cards by Mari Kumada via Netgalley. It's a craft book about, what else? Pop-up cards.

Pop-Up Cards by Mari Kumada

The book has more than 50 different designs to follow for cards for all sorts of occasions such as birthdays, weddings, holidays and more. 

Each design is photographed and templates are given for each card. The cards look intricate and hard to make, but surprisingly, the cards are easy to make. (There's your secret! Intricate cards that are easy to make!)

I followed a card design that was supposed to be given on Valentine's Day, but I changed the design a little to make it into a Spring-theme birthday card. 

Card stock or similar double-sided paper was supposed to be used, but I used scrapbook paper which was the type of paper that I had on hand. 

The result is shown below:

If you can't tell already, the coil is a blossom shaped thing. The template I followed is the same one as the card that's displayed on the cover. 

I loved this book for its versatile designs and easy to follow instructions and so will you!
