Every Day Pop Up Cards

Hi Everyone!  This is Erika from EKittyscraps.blogspot.com.  Today I would like to share two cards I made using Every Day Pop Up Cards.  I have always liked pop up cards and was very excited when the cartridge was released.  So on to the cards.  The first card I made for my DH's birthday and the other card was for my MIL's birthday. 

Here is the front of the card with Cricut driving the birthday cake.  The truck was cut at 5 inches and cricut and 1".  Here is the pop-up:
I used the frosting background paper and cut the pop-up of the cake at 4 inches.  I used Bazzil cornmeal paper for the cake and this paper has raised dots on it for texture. This was a very simple pop up-two slits in the middle of the paper folded out.

The next card was a more complicated pop up and took me awhile to figure out.
My MIL loves elephants so here is her card.  I cut out the elephant at 3 inches nnd used the Marth Stewart punch for the Happy Birthday.  I added some silver bling to the Happy Birthday and the elephants ear.  Now for the popup.
  The elephant was cut a 3 inches.  The pop up took a while to get the folds correct on the base.  I did use two light blue brads to secure the sides of the base since the glue was not holding very well.  The brads worked out great.  The ears and tusks were folded out to add dimension. There are four cuts through the pink paper to secure the base.to the paper underneath. I added some Martha Stewart flowers for fun.
I hope you enjoyed these projects and would love to see more pop up cards.
