Bugs and Hugs Pop up Birthday Card

Welcome to the Universally Crafty Die-Versions Blog! Karen Hasheck here again and today I am sharing a birthday card I made with the brand new Bug Friends die set from Die-Versions. I love to make cards for kids and when I saw this cute set of bugs in the newest release, I knew I had to play with it. I created a top folding A2 card base and attached the Happy Birthday Corner to the top. I die cut the Momma and baby snail out of green, plaid and black scraps and paper pieced them together. I die cut “BUGS &” out with a Die-Versions alphabet die. The best part of this card is what pops up when it is opened:

Four panels of cute bugs and hugs twist and pop up to surprise and delight the recipient. There are many ways to make this twist and pop element, but I did a tutorial on the easiest way I have tried here if you would like to try one. I die cut three more bugs from the new Bug Friends set for three of the panels and added Die-Version’s “hugs” too. I think my grandson will like this “bugs and hugs” pop up card. Here is a close up of those cute bugs:

Thanks for visiting the Die-Versions blog. I hope our projects inspire you to try some of the many great Die-Versions dies available at the website!
