Spinning Pop Up Ball Card

Spinning Pop Up Ball Card
           Hi friends, its been quite some time since I shared an Interactive card and this one is rather special...it is a Rubber band activated Pop Up Ball Card which also spins.I first made a similar Pop up ball card several years back by handcutting  a template from a website which is no longer active [by artist Linda Lucine]
Spinning Pop Up Ball Card
Making the hexagonal Pop Up ball using a template was cool but after getting a die cutting machine I found it tedious to trace and cut templates!This particular Pop up Card was made using a Pop Up Ball die by Karen Burniston.
Spinning Pop Up Ball Card
My Pop Up card has a spring theme and features heat embossed flowers[ heartfelt creations sun kissed fleur stamp and die set] and Sizzix and Cheery Lynn  butterflies.
Crackle Paint
Used a Sizzix Brick die cut as a stencil to ink a brick pattern across the pop up card and added crackle paint and glossy accents to highlight parts of the brick pattern.
Glossy Accents
The glittery heat embossed parchment flowers are bordered by Cheery Lynn grass die cuts and I added liquid pearls and glossy accents on the butterflies.
Rubber Band activated Pop Up card
The golden heat embossed plant near the lamp post, the spring sentiment and golden heat embossed bees are all from a stamp set gifted by my sweet and generous blogger friend Lisa . She also gifted me the glossy accents and the beautiful green lacy trim I used on this card.Thank you so much Lisa!!
Heat embossing
The white flowers and the white butterfly you see on this pop up card were all stamped on parchment and heat embossed. Parchment is much stiffer than regular velum and maintains its shape after bending or folding so your flowers/ butterflies wont become flat even if you add them inside a card.
Heat Embossed Butterfly
I also added a tiny golden gate at the bottom of my spring garden so that the spring fairies can enter and frolic around in my garden!
Spring Pop Up Ball Card
The Pop up ball has 3 rubber bands inside and can be folded absolutely flat inside the pop up card.

Another super cool thing about this design is that the Pop Up ball is attached to the base card with a brad so it also rotates.Here is the super short video showing how the pop up card springs open and the ball rotates.


 
I hope you liked this interactive Pop Up card.

  43. I've never seen anything like this popup card. Had to keep going back to re-look at the photos, and then enjoyed the lovely video. Can only imagine the time it took to create all the wonderfully dimensioned textures, and the gorgeous colors of the butterflies. The parchment embossed flowers are so realistic, and each of the interesting embellies that you've added, created so much more to a splendid card. Lisa's gift lace is truly perfect trimming, as was the tiny golden gate to enter your fairyland world. TFS & Happy wkend.
