Vase Pop Up Card for Mother's Day ☆ CottageCutz

Happy May Day friends!

This one has been around for at least a couple years, but this was my first time trying a Vase Pop Up Card!  The wow factor is on the inside ☺  I decided to make it a Mother's Day theme featuring the NEW Spring Daffodils from CottageCutz. 

First, I'll show you the inside of my card 

and below is the front of my card...

Here's a short clip of how the vase pops up when you open the card ☺  
If you can't see it here, please click HERE.

I followed a video tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers by Gloria here.  Although I found Dawn's video a bit more clear to follow HERE.  It may be most helpful to watch a video ( there are others on YT if you search Vase Pop Up ☺)

The patterned paper I used is called Sunshine and Rainbows from SU!


I started with a white A2 card base:  5-1/2" x 4-1/4"

Mango Melody mat = 5-1/4" x 4"
White cardstock = 3-3/4" x 5" 

 • Blue patterned paper (same DSP) = 5-1/4" x 4"
• Rainbow striped patterned paper = 2-1/4" x 5"  
- then score along the 5" side at 1" and 4"
- then score along the 2-1/4" side at 3/4" and 1-1/2" just up to the scored line!
- then cut as shown in photo 
• white cardstock = 3/4" x 2"
• white cardstock = 3/4" x 3-7/8" 
- then scored at  3/8" on just one end

It's best to watch the video to see how to create the vase with moving mechanism ;)  

I die cut the Daffodils from yellow (Daffodil Delight), orange (Mango Melody) and green cardstock then gave some shadowing with Copics.

I glued a few of the flowers/stems to the blue layer above the vase, and some I glued to the top back-side of the vase so they pop out along with the vase when the card is open. 

I then decided to print a poem for the right side of my card since I didn't have any big Mother's Day sentiment stamps.  So I cut my white piece down to 3-1/4" x 4-1/4", then I matted it with a piece of blue/white patterned paper that I first die cut with largest Nested Scalloped Rectangle.

For the front, I die cut the Stitched Alphabet in oranges and yellow, and the Daffodils in green and yellow, then I used Copic markers to give the orange shade into it.  The li'l hearts were die cut from the Celebrate Banner die.  And the blue inverted scallops frame is just what was left after I die cut the scalloped rectangle from the middle of it for the inside mat!  



I hope I've inspired you to try something NEW to you using your favorite CottageCutz dies! 

Happy Inking! ~Kristine
