Hello, it’s Sue of Ully Cat’s World and today we are making an autumn birthday pop-up card for a gardener using Karen Burniston dies.
Cut the two printed papers to 4 15/16 inches x 7 inches. Position them inside the card base so that there is a gap between the papers where the fold can be seen. Using removable tape, tape them together and place the chair die with the nibs over the fold.
Run taped papers with die through die-cutting machine.
Glue printed papers inside card base, adding matching scraps of papers to cover the brown spaces let where chair is cut away.
Cut chair, arms and seat from woodgrain paper. (I made my own woodgrain paper using a woodgrain stamp that I heat embossed with watermark ink and clear embossing powder.)
Fold woodgrain chair folds as shown on packaging. Glue wood grain chair to patterned paper chair matching up the seat, back, arms and leg pieces. Train the chair to pop-up by opening and closing card a few times.
Decorate card with the garden charm set cutting off the charm loops. (I dirtied-up the tools and gloves with brown ink.)
The chrysanthemum-like flowers are made with the smallest flower from the Flower Pot Pop-up or Flowers and Bee set cut like fringe around the center circle. Cut two, fringe, push up fringed petals and glue one on top of the other. Glue three flowers onto foliage from charm set. Trim foliage as needed.
Round flowerpots and watering can over a marker or glue bottle. Add oak leaves from Tiny Tree Pop-Up to potted flowers and around card.
Make flowerpots and watering can pop-up taking printed paper cut into strips, fold and glue into squares. Glue pot to square and onto card.
The front of the card is made with a label die and a sentiment from Karen Burniston Word Set 7 – Autumn.
(I used a fine tipped glue bottle to added glue to the die-cut words that worked extremely well. Then I used a fine-tipped brown pen to mark stitches using the die as a stencil.)
Inside, the “Happy Birthday” is another Karen Burniston die that has been colored with Distress Ink. A label die-cut is used for a personal message.
Hope this fun card has put a smile on your face and provided some inspiration for your crafting. 😊

The details you put in your cards…just wonderful. I’m so glad you explained how you did the wood grain on the chair…because when I looked at it, I couldn’t figure out how you got it to run two ways when it was a one piece die. You are amazing!

I have been using the Stampin’Up wood grain stamps lot for this series of chairs. The watermarking and clear embossing powder really make it look like varnished wood.
