Pop-up 2torial: Pop 'n Cuts "Flying by" card

Pop 'n Cuts will be available in stores this month, so to help you become familiar with the dies and how they work, I'm going to be posting regular Pop-up 2torials both here and on my blog

Here is the video and then photos and a supply list follow -

On the front of the card, the Flagpole is mounted with pop-dots, to give it some elevation. The slider piece, the heart paper clip and the decorative heart (green) were cut using the Love Sizzlit set.

Inside the card, I used the brand new Bigz Borders & Hydrangeas die, by Eileen Hull, to create the grassy border along the bottom.

The white swirly flourish that's wrapped around the pole is one of the shapes in the Love Sizzlit set.

I love the way this "Flying by" card turned out! It fits easily in an A2 sized envelope, all ready for mailing to a friend.

But I couldn't stop there! With dies you're buying shapes and possibilities, not colors and patterns.

I decided I had to try the card again with a different theme. This time I used some fun rubber stamps from The Stamps of Life by Stephanie Barnard. I also switched out the Borders and Hydrangea die for another new Eileen Hull die, the Sweet Treats for You Sizzlit Set. I followed the same assembly steps as in the video.

Pretty cool, huh? All of these card ideas are just blueprints, waiting for your creative interpretation. What else could be suspended in this type of card? A butterfly? Beads? Charms? So many possibilities!

Be looking for the Pop 'n Cuts collection in stores this month. I can hardly wait!

Thanks for stopping by and happy die cutting!

I am a Cricut user orignially with my scrapbooking and cardmaking but sometimes I get really tired of that sticky mat!!(that doesn't stick very well!!) I am looking to get some die cuts to go with my Big Shot.
