Pop-Up Card featuring Spellbinder’s Bibi’s Hummingbirds Collection

Updated: Oct 11, 2023

Hello everyone! AND happy Spring! Finally we have warmer weather and the snow is just about gone! Speaking of warmer weather, how about a sweet pop-up card featuring Spellbinder's Hummingbird and Lily and Pop-up Hummingbird! These die sets are amazing! I have rolled both of them together for a special birthday card,

All of die cut elements have been cut from Bristol Smooth Card Stock and coloured with Distress Oxide Inks using blender tools. The hummingbirds were inked with a combination of Mowed Lawn and Forest Wilderness. A touch of Peacock Feathers was used on the wings, tail feathers and breast detail. All of the foliage was coloured with Mowed Lawn and Forest Wilderness. For both flowers, the petals were done in Barn Door and Carved Pumpkin. The stamens and flower centre for the pop-up flower was inked with Fossilized Amber. The tiny flowers on the inside spray were coloured with Squeezed Lemonade and finished off with a dot of Black Nuvo Crystal Drops.


POP-UP HUMMINGBIRD

This interactive element is so easy to put together and has a big WOW factor!

  • The hummingbird was assembled by first adhering the breast details. The main body die cut has score lines to indicate where they are to be placed.

  • The hummingbird die cut was folded in half and one black card stock beak was adhered to the head. The second beak was adhered to the head and beak on the other side. The eye die cuts were also adhered.

  • The wing was attached to the hummingbird's back. The second wing was adhered to the other side making sure both wings were aligned to one another.

  • The two flower petal layers and stamens have score lines. The score lies are creased and, for the petal layers, the end petal is adhered on top of the first one. The stamen has a tab to attach it to the other end.

  • The petal layers and stamens were folded in half so that the tabs were positioned in the centre on each side. Adhesive is placed on the tabs to adhere the three elements together.

  • A dark grey panel measuring 8 1/2" by 5 1/2" was scored and creased in half at 4 1/4" on the long side. The panel was opened up and the die that creates the slots was centred over the crease about 1" from the top of the panel. After die cutting, the die is placed about 2" from the bottom of the panel and cut. There are now two sets of slots.

  • There are two tabs on the hummingbird's tail feathers. These are placed through the slots at the top of the panel. The slots on the flower are positioned in the other pair of slots. The tabs are folded and adhered to the back.

  • Flower sprays were adhered directly to the panel.

  • The panel is trimmed so that it measures 8" by 5". This panel is adhered inside a black, side-folding, A2 sized card base.


HUMMINGBIRD AND LILY

  • An A2 sized panel of dark grey card stock was embossed with Hydrangea Blooms Embossing Folder.

  • The cloud profile die was used to cut two pieces of vellum. The vellum layers were wrapped, creased and adhered to the back of the embossed panel.

  • One of the lily petal sets was slipped into the slot on the other one and adhered together. The black card stock stamens were adhered to the centre and then attached to the stem.

  • The flower buds were adhered to the other stem before layering it on the lily stem. The leaves were attached and the flowers adhered over the vellum clouds.

  • To assemble the hummingbird, the breast detail and mask were adhered. These areas are scored on the body making them easy to position. The beak was adhered.

  • The wings have a layered detail. Once these are attached, both wings and the tail feathers are adhered.

  • The hummingbird is adhered to the card front with foam squares and the little butterfly and dragonfly with their wings bent upward are attached with adhesive just on the body.

  • The card front is adhered to the card base and Aura Hot Foil sentiments on black card stock from Birthday Unboxing Hot Foil Plates and Die Set are added to the front and inside of the card.
