Party Pop-up Stair step card




These Party Pop-Up Thinlits dies are not just for pop-up cards, oh no. The beauty of them is that, if you want to create a pop-up card like this one, you add the score-line yourself, by scoring your cardstock first then lining up the line with the guides on the die. 

That gives you the flexibility to create projects like the one above, where the Happy Birthday is used on non-scored cardstock to create a fabulous cut-out design element. I’ve added just a hint of yellow ink to the candles and saved some of the die-cut pieces from previous projects to use as additional embellishments. I keep the leftover pieces in an old button pot  - don’t throw away those tiny stars and streamers as they’ll come in useful next time, for projects like this and this.

The DSP shown here is FREE with a £45 order but only until the end of the month. It’s a really nice set of designs, in some of my favourite colours; in fact if you purchase the Farmers Market cardstock assortment you’ll find it co-ordinates perfectly. Top tip there. No charge.
