As a paper crafter, card making fascinates me. When I create with paper, I make scrapbook layouts or pocket page projects that are typically (with the exception of a few embellishments) flat and 2-dimensional. I love how DIY card makers are able to get so many details into a relatively small space, and I am even more fascinated when their work literally pops off the card! When I started exploring the 3D and pop-up card trend, I expected the techniques to be difficult and hard to achieve, but I was pleasantly surprised. I found many ideas that, as a novice card maker, I felt comfortable that I could recreate. I love these cute and simple pop-up card ideas that are perfect for the beginner. Once you become more comfortable with your pop up card creating skills, why not try making an exploding card? And once you tackle that, the sky is the limit and you may be ready to dive into creating a pop-up card in a box.
I have gathered 20 of my favorite pop up card tutorials to share with you. Some have step by step instructions and some even have videos. There are cards for everyone . . . flower cards, cards with cute animals, cards for kids, Christmas cards, easy cards, and ornate cards. You name the occasion and there is a pop up card you can create for it!

Have you ever created a pop-up card? What was the occasion?
I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
