Pop-Up Vase Card

Hello! It has been a while since I last created something to share for Mother's Day. After seeing Jennifer McGuire's video tutorial, I got inspired to create what Jennifer created. At first, I was going to use whatever supplies I have on hand. But after visiting my local craft store, I was not able to resist buying  the supplies I used for this project. 

The supplies I used for this project are:

  • Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Daisy Layering Die Set
  • Memory Box Sunny Orange 110lb 6x6 Cardstock Paper Pad
  • Memory Box Lush Green 110lb 6x6 Cardstock Paper Pad

I die cut the daisy using the colored cardstock, layering it from dark to light. I used a slider die to create the stem. I doubled the stem/slider die cut to make it sturdy. I adhered a solid daisy die cut to the back to make it seamless, covering the tip of the stem/slider die cut. I added dots to the flower centers using a Sakura Black Glaze pen. I think die cutting and adhering the layers are the most tedious tasks for this project aside from the addition of details here and there. 

I don't have the die that creates the vase which Jennifer used in her video. I created my own vase by trimming a white cardstock into 5 1/2" x 3". I scored this at 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 3 3/4" and 5". After I folded the cardstock at the scored line, I adhered the ends together by adding double adhesive tape to the 1/2" tab. I added a layer of silver cardstock to each side of the vase. Each silver panel was cut at 1" x 2 3/4". I created the holding tabs for the flower by trimming a white cardstock at 2 1/4" x 1". I scored this at 1/2" and 1 3/4". After folding the scored lines, I added liquid adhesive to these tabs and adhered it to the inside of the vase.

I arranged three flowers per vase. I added the leaves after. I would have wanted to make the stems seamless too by covering the back part where the leaf is adhered, but this will cause some problems with the mechanism of the pop-up so I decided to go against it.

I decorated the vase with an embossed sentiment strip which I layered with two more sentiment strip die cuts. I punched a hole on one side of the sentiment strip so I can thread the ribbon through it. 

I wrapped the sheer ribbon around the vase. I threaded the ribbon through the hole of the sentiment strip. I adhered a silver glitter foam bow die cut using a glue gun. I added a gem to the center.

Now, it is ready to be given away.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Mother's Day! Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
