H2H Birthday challenge "It's Party Time" - a pop-up card

I have to thank Lora at Crafts Are My Thing for this card.  She brought a pop-up card to a fall card group we had and I was immediately hooked! I had to know how to do it.  And as of September 21, 2010 I had never made a pop-up card before.  Now everything has changed.  I HAVE made a pop-up card.  I've made three now and I am just getting started. 
I will post the other two soon so check back (There's a nativity one and a PIANO ONE!)
 I forgot how much I love the whole paper folding aspect of paper.  I originally fell in love with paper when I was growing up and my family hosted a Japanese exchange student and she taught me how to do origami.  I LOVED the paper folding and I REALLY LOVED the beautiful rice paper she gave to me as a present.  I don't remember which I liked more.  Too hard to choose between the two.
 I am submitting this pop-up birthday card to the Heart to Heart Challenge.

I think I will give it to my older sister who just had a birthday.  Hopefully when she opens it up and sees how amazing it is, she won't care that it is late.

  1. That's a lot of popping presents, so cute!

  2. Love the pop up idea. I'm always looking for ideas to create out of the box type of cards so this was perfect to share on the H2H Birthday challenge. Thanks for playing along.

  3. Awesome pop up card! If it was late for my birthday I would forgive you!

  4. Ha! I think it's great that you went with presents and I went with cupcakes. Hilarious! We traded ideas and didn't even know it. HA!!

  5. Wow!!! Fabulous card, that must have taken FOREVER to make! (Certainly worth it, in my opinion). Love those pastel colors and fabulous papers (so sad when they went away). Nicely done! Thanks for playing along with Heart 2 Heart challenges!
