Pop-up Card - Birthday Bakery

How about a Pop-Up card with the Hostess Level I set from Stampin' Up! Birthday Bakery? This is a card we made several months ago at a Fun Folds Technique Class. There are several ways to make pop-up cards, and this is one of the easiest.

We stamped the cake line-up a few times across the strip of Whisper White and then colored them with a variety of Markers. The sentiment here is from a retired Hostess set, punched with the Wide Oval Punch and tucked behind the Elegant Eggplant mat. 

The inside of this card has three pop-up elements, which fold flat, but stand up when opened. The center cupcake piece is die cut with the Big Bold Cupcake Sizzlets die for the Big Shot.

To create the pop-up element for this card, cut a liner 1/8 shorter and 1/4 narrower than your full card - in this case 5 3/8 x 4 is the size of the liner. Fold it in half and then make two snips into the fold line to create one or more pop-up pieces. We didn't measure these, but cut a wider element in the middle and then two smaller ones on each side. Fold these in the opposite direction of the liner and then adhere the liner to the card base - no adhesive on the backs of the pop-up element. Finally, attach your stamped or Big Shot pieces to the front of each. Here's a side view:
