Twist up Pop up card
Dear friends Thank you for sticking by me and giving such amazing support to my post on Stamping Basics. You are the best !! I made this special triple pop up mechanism birthday card for my niece in Kerala.
Pop up cards 1
Interactive 3 D card
Pop up cards are ideal for posting as classically the front of these cards are relatively un-embellished . I used my new poppystamps die to make an Interactive Card!

The arches are Spellbinder die cuts glued only at the ends to make a 3 D arch.
Pop up cards 5
Glitter foam Tiara
I cut the little girl's crown from glitter foam and this earned me a big "WOW a Princess!!" from my own little Princess!!

Interactive 3 D card
The lattice windows swing open to reveal a princess standing on a royal silver glittery carpet!I secured the windows closed with a bit of pink satin ribbon which you may have noticed in the earlier picture.On opening the card the little Princess sitting on a strawberry  swings up at the center of the card with Pop Up Strawberry plants on either side and floating clouds atop.

Now a bit of Pop Up Card making jargon to pique your interest!The 3 D pop up scene has 3 types of Pop Up mechanisms.Most pop up cards in which the image spans the central card fold tend to have folds in the middle of the image[eg Pop Up Christmas Card].You can shift the image from the center of the card fold like I did in this Fairy Home Pop Up Card or use the V fold as part of your Pop up like in the Wishing Well Pop Up card.

Floating cloud Pop up
The Clouds are made by a floating pop up mechanism like in this tutorial : Christmas Wreath Pop up card tutorial .The little girl springs up in the center of the Pop up card by a twisting up Pop Up mechanism. And the 3rd pop up mechanism is a super easy accordion fold pop up [tutorial link :Pop Up Card tutorial ]which makes the strawberry plant and strawberry pop up on either side of the little girl in this triple action Pop Up Card

I am trying to get over my dislike of videos and made my first Video!! Tried making the Pop Up Card Video on You tube but was not happy with the quality [Does anyone have any tips on software or editing tools to make better You tube videos?]so sharing a short 36 sec video on Vimeo.

            I usually share tutorials [see more than 135 tutorials on Craft tutorials page] on most crafts I blog about but the twist up pop up card is a difficult one !!Yet if I get enough requests I will gladly tackle the task of making and posting a tutorial !! [I am guessing 2 pop up card enthusiasts Pooja and Sindhu....??!]
Do tell me how you like this interactive card.
PS : I have been missing from blogland...will soon drop by and visit you all!

  7. Hi Doc, wow this is stunning and you are one amazing creative lady...I just love any kind of card that's different but time is an issue sometimes. The cameo, if you got one you would never regret it...now instead of buying dies I am teaching myself how to use it to it's fullest.
    Thanks for joining my candy, sometimes I wish I could give to everyone. but as they say 'there can only be one winner''. Goodnight doc...and I must say I miss my nursing now...was an RN with eye surgeons. great job...cheers.xx

  9. You are correct It has piqued my Interest !! I was like peeking n tilting my head while watching the video just to get the glimpse of pop-up mechanism :D !! I have some idea but not complete...so here comes the request for tutorial :) ! The card front could not be more beautiful than this one,perfect for the theme and for a B'day Princess too.loved the lattice door and the scene inside is so lovey ! I also liked the use of silver glitter !Though videos take time to load ,they are perfect to show pop-up cards in action !

  12. Like the style of card that opens up so bee-utifully. The dies you used are wonderful. It is indeed a Princess of a card. You can enter this at Cuttin' & Stampin' Ch14-9 Butterflies since the front of the card has a Butterfly on it. Please leave a comment at Cuttin' & Stampin' letting them know I sent you.

  27. Dr Sonia,
    Your art is beautiful. I always look forward to getting one of your new blogs when you post. Instead of a video, I would like to see a couple photos of the pieces before you put the card together and would be grateful. I went to all the links you provided, thank you, but could not figure out exactly the center mechanism. I do not have much luck with videos, the only way I can make them is to be exact the first time, as I make a mess when I try to edit. Keep up the great works. Cannot wait to see more. Your creations are magical. Thank you for sharing, Petrina
