Pop-Up Pumpkin Card

Pop-up ball cards always remind me of the jack-in-the-box toy when you open them and something pops up to make you smile. This pop-up pumpkin card was designed for a baby’s first Halloween.

The card front pumpkin and easel base are a die set by Anna Griffin and the pop-up pumpkin inside is made using dies by Karen Burniston.

Follow the assembly video to make the mini pop-up ball

I made a band to hold the card closed from leftover pieces of decorative cardstock. The sentiment is by Karen Burniston.

The card fits into a 6 x 9 inch envelope. I stamped the front and back of the envelope with stamps by Tim Holtz.

I often add a CRX slip that helps the card recipient know how to open the interactive card. (You can download the sheet with four slips on it. for free.)
