Hello! Nichol here today with a set of Book Buddy pop up birthday cards and bookmarks! The new Book Buddy Creative Cuts Dies mix and match beautifully with the Inside Pop Bunny and Cat Dies. You guys, I love when we can mix and match our products and breathe new life into them. Even better than these two sets working seamlessly together? They pair perfectly with the Favor Bag Add On Creative Cuts Dies. I love this look and can't wait to share these cards with you.
Let's start with the front of the three cards I'm sharing here today. The frames for each were die cut from Bristol Smooth Cardstock and die cut using the Framed Tags Hug It Out Creative Cuts Dies before being inked with two colors of Distress Oxide Ink colors, spritzed with water from a Distress Sprayer and blotted dry. The frame and inside panel were adhered to the front of white top fold card bases and adorned with a large Favor Bag Add On Dog, Bear, and Bunny peeking up from the bottom of each frame. All the components for each critter were die cut from cardstock, inked a bit and then glued in placed. Glossy Accents, a white gel pen, and Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard were used to embellish components of the design.
The word "hugs" from the Framed Tags Hug It Out Creative Cuts Dies was die cut from black mirror cardstock adhered to Fun Foam with Stick It Adhesive and place in the upper portion of each window.
I created custom cardstock "colors" by taking the Distress Ink pads and doing direct to paper. Once the ink was dry (I sped up the process with a heat tool), I stamped "happy birthday" from the Oh Happy Day Stamp Set using clear embossing ink, heat embossed with white embossing powder, and trimmed the sentiment into a thin strip before adhering to the card with foam adhesive.
For the insides of the cards, pop ups were created by combining the new Book Buddy Creative Cuts Dies mix with the Inside Pop Bunny and Cat Dies. An additional sentiment from the Oh Happy Day Stamp Set was stamped with black ink inside the card.
Much like the inside pop ups, matching bookmarks were created with the Book Buddy Creative Cuts Dies mix and Inside Pop Bunny and Cat Dies and assembled as shown in the video. These go together so fast and make fantastic party favors or little gifts! These critters are so adorable!
