Happy Halloween!  Have you been creating with the Monster Madness collection?  I just can't get enough of the adorable little monsters!  I made some more using the new Sweet Tooth and Party Animal Doodle Cuts sets, and decided to use them in a birthday pop up card... take a peek...

I just love these little guys... and the fun balloons, cupcakes and presents are too cute!

For my sentiment I pulled out my Doodle Cuts Happy Birthday Dies.  I cut the words and glued them together, then to the monsters to  make it look like they are holding the words like a banner.  The "from all of us" sentiment is from the Spooky Fun Cardstock.

I love how the pop up gives so much dimension to my little scene. And of course we can't forget the front of the card... I used one of the cut-aparts on the Spooky Fun double sided cardstock, and added a little balloon from the doodle cuts.

The pop up card was really easy to make.  I've put together a little tutorial below.

1.  I started by cutting my card base and an insert.  The base is 10"x7", folded in half.  The insert is 9.75" x 6.75" also folded in half.  I then glued the insert into the card base.

2.  Next I added my bottom pop out.  This pop out piece is 6" x 4".  I scored it at .5", 2" and 3.5".  I then added double sided tape to the two .5" tabs.  I centered the piece in my card base, making sure that the center score line was aligned with the card base fold.  I then took off the tape cover strip, and while holding the piece in place, folded the ends under and secured.

3.  This is what the card looks like when finished.

4.  I then added the second pop out piece.  This piece is 3.75" x 3".  I scored it at .5", 1.5" and 2.5". I opened up my card,  then aligned the center score line on this piece with the top of the first pop out piece.  I held it in place, removed the adhesive cover and tucked them under like I did with the previous piece.  

5.  This is what the card looks like when the two pop ups are done.

All that was left was to add all of my monsters, balloons, presents etc!   

That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
