Liberty Pop Up Shaker Card for the 4th of July

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to Authentique Paper Summer Celebration Week! The Design Team will be sharing Independence Day and Summer themed inspiration projects all this week.  And I'm getting the party started with a Red, White and Blue Pop Up Shaker Card made with the Liberty Collection. 

This card design doubles as home decor and would look fantastic in a table scape or on a 4th of July mantel.  Here's how to put this festive card together:  

  • First, create a 5" x 7" top fold card base from red cardstock.
  • Next, cut a background from a 4 7/8" x 6 7/8" panel of blue designer paper.
  • Then cut a 4 7/8" x 2 1/2" belly band from the stars/text panel.
  • Now stitch around the perimeter of these panels if desired.

  • Cut (2) 2" x 6" fishtail banners from complementary patterns and adhere to the left hand side of the background panel.
  • Now fussy cut around the edge of the 3x4 flag image and mat on red cardstock.  Adhere in the center of the card.

  • Use a nested star die to cut 2 (3 3/4") stars from patterned paper. Set one star aside to form the back of the shaker element.
  • Place a smaller nested die in the center of the other star and die cut to create a frame.
  • Now cut the large star a third time using clear cardstock.
  • Adhere the clear cardstock to the back of the star frame.
  • Then add 3 layers of 1/8" foam strips to the back side of the frame.
  • Next fill the frame with your shaker elements.  Adhere the die cut star to foam tape and press in place to seal.
  • Die cut several more small stars from red and blue metallic paper.  Use these to embellish the card.
  • Finally add flowers, ribbon, buttons and letter tiles.

Create a fun pop-up scene inside the card.  You can find a tutorial for making this style of  pop up card HERE.

Decorate with more die cut stars, fussy cut elements and stickers from the paper collection.  There's even a fun little flip down sentiment panel located at the bottom of the card.

I hope you all enjoy a safe, happy and fun 4th of July!  You'll find a linked supply list below this post.
