Savanna Pop-Up Birthday Card

This has to be my favourite card I've made so far. I used a yellow chevron card blank from Pebbles. I wanted to keep the front quite simple so I could really go to town on the pop-up on the inside. I used a lion stamp from Lawn Fawn's Critters on the Savanna and backed it on a stitched circle of white card die-cut using the Stitched Party Banners die, also from Lawn Fawn. The sentiment is also from Critters on the Savanna and I completed the front of the card using a few sequins from my stash.

I had so much fun making the centre of this card. I used patterned paper from #Summer by American Crafts (I also used a couple of scraps from other collections but I'm afraid I can't recall where they came from). I created three layers of scenery to act as the main pop-up mechanicm, using the Mama Elephant Landscape Trio and Lawn Fawn Grassy Border dies. The trees, animals, birds and rocks all come from the Lawn Fawn Critters on the Savanna stamp set. They were stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils and blending fluid. I added white accents with a Uniball white gel pen and fussy cut them. I created the bunting in the background using a Stampin' Up banner punch and green bakers twine from the Dovecraft Riverbank Revels collection. The 'birthday wishes' sentiemnt was stamped and die cut using the Wplus9 Basic Banner set and Hero Arts Green Hills ink. I completed the card using sequins from my stash.


  1. What a fabulous card Jennie! The savanna critters lend themselves perfectly to a pop up scene and you did it so well.
