Quick and Easy Pop-up Card

This technique was demonstrated in the August issue of Scrapbooks Etc. and I just had to give it a try. There are lots of different ways to make a pop-up, but this one is super easy. You can easily modify the pop-up tab by making it larger or repositioning it on your card. I made a vertical card but it works just as well on a horizontal one. Please scroll down to see the video.


I so wish you could see him wobble. To view my video on how to make homemade wobble springs please click here. If you would like more information on how to use Microsoft Word for your sentiments, click here.



You could add a larger pop-up image or use a sentiment for added variety. You could even make an entire background scene.



Hope you are having a great day and stay tuned for Fab Five Friday.

Love the card! I think the Action Wobbles are great. Before I got some of them I did use your idea-thank you for that!

I'll have to try the pop up now.
Thanks, Marcie

Cute, cute card! Halloween seems like the perfect time for a wobble card. I wonder if you could use a wobble spring inside behind the pumpkin, so it would pop up AND wobble??? Thanks for the super sweet comments you left on my blog! ~Hugs, Cheryl

Linda, I too just finished making cards using this vampire - he is just so cute.

Your idea of adding the pop-up just makes this card over the top.

Thanks so much for sharing this - I look forward to your next video.

Awesome card and thank you so much for the video instructions. My 9 year old daughter actually showed me this technique last year (a little bit different, but same concept)! I have to now check out your video on the wobble!

Thanks so much for sharing your videos with us. I feel like I now have a chance to learn some of these awesome techniques! God bless, Smoochie
