Crafty Today: Get Well Pop Up Card

Get Well Pop Up Card

Another pop card I made last year for two very special people.  Same steps as this tutorial and I selected all of the doodads from the All Occasion Box Cards Cricut cartridge.  A very cheery, get well card that was well received by the recipients.  I created the card using the original Cricut and now that I have the new Explore Air 2, I might have to try making it again.

I know I have been away from the blog for some time, but my life has had some changes.  Mostly for the good.  I will continue to share my creations and thoughts about crafted living with all of you.  The look and feel of the blog will be changing for the better and I look forward to interacting with you more.  If you are a lover of my photography, then please follow me at on Instagram.  Spring has been quite inspirational here in California so please join me.


Crafty Today: Anniversary Pop Up Box Card

Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary!

This first pop up box card I created was this one to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.  Still can’t believe it!  I followed the same process outlined in this post. Unfortunately, this line from Jillibean Soup isn’t available anymore.  Too bad as it is adorable and lends itself well for Valentine Day cards also.  My husband was definitely wowed by this card.  This year we will be celebrating 22 years of marriage and no clue what I am going to create.  I better get on it.


P.S. Please follow me on Instagram  See you there!

Crafty Today: Birthday Pop Up Box Card

Make a wish!

Make a wish!

These pop up box cards are all over Pinterest and I have been obsessed with them for about two years.  I will share my cheater way of creating these fabulous cards without using rubber stamps.  You need the following tools and supplies to create this card:

  • Jillibean Soup paper
  • Jillibean Pea Pod Parts
  • cardstock
  • scoring board
  • adhesive
  • foam dots and tape

Follow this tutorial from Splitcoaststampers to create the box.  Add assorted pea pod parts to the flaps, straps and inside front of card using the foam tape and dots.  Add embellishment and sentiment to the back of the card.

You want to add the pod parts to the straps in ascending order so it doesn’t block the inside front of the card.  Also, having varying thicknesses of foam tape and dots gives you the flexibility to stack the pod parts and adds emphasis.  I used my favorite Cricut cartridge, Tiny Treasures, to create the 80 on the inside front of the card.  You also can make an envelope for this card using the Envelope Punch Board and choosing size 6×7.  This card has enormous wow factor so you should make it for that special person in your life that will truly appreciate it.  I created this card for my mother-in-law and she had it on view for weeks.  I hope you try it!
