Send love with pop up cards

Pop up cards seem to be all the rage in the shops at the moment, so I thought I'd have a go at making one myself.  Love how it came out.  I used Kaisercraft cardstoock for the bottom section and then Botanical Tea flowers and Banners pop outs, a couple of paper butterflies and the Botanical Tea stamp set for the embellishments.  

the great thing about this little card is that it folds flat and can be posted in a little envelope made to fit perfectly with the envelope punch board which I'm loving.  We used it on saturday to make the file tab on the side of our Junque Journal.  there are so many ways to use it, its definitely a great thing to invest in if you don't have one already.  I'll post instructions on how to make one of these cards next week along with how to make bows using the envelope punch board too. 

Before I hop off  I just wanted to mention that there's still time to leave a comment on our March Giveaway post if you haven't done so already.  Here's the link.  The winner will be announced here on the blog on March 31st. 

Thanks for calling by and catch up again tomorrow with a special post :-) C 


  1. Morning Clare, Wow !! I love this pop up card, the papers are gorgeous. I love the 'idea' of these type of cards, especially as they fold flat for posting, but I wouldn't have a clue how to make one. Thankfully you are going to show us, and also the bows, ohhhhh, I'm so excited !!!
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

Good afternoon Clare, I'm afraid I cheated a little because whilst having a "mooch" around your fabulous blog a few days ago I stopped by the Hints and Tips section and was fortunate enough to see this great project before this post. Hope you don't mind but I left you a comment there as did Pauline, who was hot on my trail! Loving the idea of this card and as I mentioned previously I would soooooo love to see a tutorial for this when and if you have the time. Thanks for sharing this with us and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

What a week!

IndigoBlu Tags  Happy Friday everyone If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!    I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-)  As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love.  Tag 1 IndigoBlu

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall se
