“18” Happy Birthday Pop `n Cut Card

Hey crafty friends! Gretchen here and I’ve got a new new Pop `n Cuts tutorial to share with you today featuring several Sizzix dies including the Banners #2 Framelits & Stamp Set as well as the Zig Zag Circles Framelits.

Sizzix Die Cutting Tutorial: Gretchen Schmidt "18" Pop 'n Cuts Card

In a few days my oldest son will be turning 18 so I made this card just for him. They get too big, too fast!

Create the base of your card out of cardstock. Add the Label PNC insert into the PNC base, line up the tick marks, lay your cardstock on top and cut. Fold according to package directions.

Cover the front and back of your card with patterned paper. My pieces is 4” x 8”. I scored it 3” in from the back. Outline the front section of patterned paper in black.

Use the Circles Framelits set, the Zig Zag Circles Framelits, and the numbers from the Word Play Alphabet to create your front sentiment.

Stamp ten different banners using the Banners #2 Framelits & Stamps set. Five will be for the front of your card and five will be for the inside.

Color your banners and cut them out using the Framelits that come with the Banners #2 set.

Assemble five of the banners and the sentiment on the front of your card and glue all the pieces down.

On the inside of your card, add the remaining five banners. Cut a larger Zig Zag Circle Framelits shape and glue it to the front of your Pop `n Cut piece.

Using the Birthday Thinlits set, create a gift and bow shape.

Outline the gift and bow in black. Assemble pieces and adhere to the front of your Zig Zag Circle.

Add a square of white cardstock to the bottom of your card that is approximately 4” x 3-1/2”. Add a strip of coordinating patterned paper to the top of the white cardstock that has been edged with the Mini Scallop & Pinking die. To finish of your card, stamp the “happy birthday” sentiment and banner using the Banners #2 Framelits & Stamp set. Color the sentiment and cut out using matching framelit.

Your “18” Happy Birthday card if officially done! Just substitute whatever number you need and you’re on your way to helping someone celebrate a very special birthday.

  1. LOVE IT! However, you're far too young to have another adult child. Surely he's only 8, right? Right? Your color choices are always so bright and fun, and awesome job on the shading!

  2. I was just scrolling down - loving your card, and thinking 'but she looks too young to have a child that old', then saw Karen's comment!

    1. Thanks Helen! My daughter is actually 14 months older... I now have to adult children. *sigh*

  3. Such a great card Gretchen!! Love all the colourful banners and the parcel.
