Happy Monday!  Allison Cope here for Inspire Me Monday.  Today we’re going to make a fun Free Standing Pop-Up birthday card using a whole bunch of fun stamps!

Here’s your supply list for today’s card:
  • 4 1/4” x 11” card base cardstock
  • 2 3/4” x 5 1/4” tag matting cardstock
  • 2 1/2” x 5” tag patterned paper (You may want 2 pieces)

  • SCORING LINES: 1”, 2 3/4”, 3 3/4”, 5 1/2”, 7 1/4”, 8 1/4”, 10”

Join me in at my crafty desk today and let’s make this fun card!  Grab your favorite beverage and away we go…

For our card today I used the cups & cupcake image from the Under Glass stamp set.  Our birthday sentiment on the back of the tag came from the Floribunda stamp set.

To decorate the card base we used the cake on a plate from the Party Time stamp set, the forget-me-not flowers and the butterfly from the Soothing Sympathy stamp set, the potted Primroses and the single Primrose bloom from the Potted Primroses, the tea cup and saucer and the little daisy and the strawberry from the Tea in the Garden set and finally the champagne glasses from the Dream Wedding stamp collection.

Here’s a photo of the front of the card…

This is the back of the card again…

This is the card from the side showing how it stands up…

And finally, this is the card folded flat to fit inside an envelope!  Hooray!

Thanks for joining me!  See you again soon!  Happy stamping!
