Pop up birthday card




Good morning!




When I first saw Stampin' Up! pop up cake, I wanted it. But I didn't want to spend that much money ($39.95) for it even as a SU demonstrator we get 20% off everything that we purchased. It's still a lot of money to spend on a die that I am going to use only a few times. And deep down I knew I can make the pop up cake without using the dies. And I did! :) Here it is!



It took me quite some time; about 6 hours of researching and planing and a few mess up (four) and finally I GOT it! I know some of you might think I am crazy to spend that much time. For me, it was all worth it and that was the fun part. Some time I like to challenge myself, just like this pop up cake.

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.

If you add slots at the sides of the cake it gives it a little more pull (see how the it's starting to separate where it's taped?).

I don't need no stinkin' die, either :)
