Pop-Up Vase Card... No special die needed

Creating a pop vase template|Shopping your stash|Relooking at cut files

As many of you, I am often inspired and enabled by the great Jennifer McQuire. However after a year of serious COVID buying I am trying to use inspiration to create from what I have and only buy those things I think I will use over and over to fill gaps in what I have.

I created the sketch above... not to scale, to create a six sided vase. The main base is made of 2 pieces.


VASE

Vase piece 1 is a created from a 5 1/2 in X 3 1/4 in piece of CS. Scored at 1 1/4 in. , 2 1/2 in., 3 1/4 in, and 5 in.


Vase piece 2 is created from a 3 in X 3 1/4 in scored at 1 1/4 in. and 2 1/2 in.


The 2 pieces are connected by the 1/2 in. tabs created.


POP UP PIECES


2 pieces - 1 in. high by 3 1/2 inches long. Scored at 1/2 in., 1 3/4 in., and 3 in.

I am putting a screen shot below of Jennifer's video to show you placement. The second piece goes under the first in the opposite direction.


DECORATIVE PANELS


Cut 6 3in Height X 1in panels Length. I cut a 5 in. and a 1 in. length piece first a ran them through my Spellbinders 6 to keep the embossed pattern consistent. Then I cut them into the 1 in. lengths.


Here is my advice about creating yourself vs. buying the die. The die is more accurate in measurements and the edges and score lines will be more finished vs. cutting yourself. I did not find it a significant enough difference for me. If you are going to make many of these types then the die may be worth it. I don't want to take away from the Scrappy Tails idea. As many, I am trying to be smarter about my purchases. I am not sure how often I will make this card. Cutting the flowers, glueing etc. is time consuming. With relative ease I was able to figure out how to create my own pop up. You also can look at many cut files for pop up cards or draw and create my template for your Cricut, Silhouette or whatever you own. If you want to purchase the die I link it here: Scrappy Tails Vase Die

She also has many other great dies.


The pink, yellow and purple mums are modified from the 3D Mums and Fall Flowers from SVGcuts.com.

Batini Mum - Grouped large and small flower sized at W: 3.5 H: 2.011

Black Eyed Susan - W:1.8 H 1.845 Centers grouped pieces W: 1.748 H: 0.445

Leaves and foliage are from various dies I have in my stash.

Some of the Broader leaf pink/coral flowers: Altenew Build A Flower Sakura blossom die only. I did not use the stamps to keep a consistent die cut look.

Stems for larger flowers: I used the die from Altenew Delicate clusters stacked with 2 die cuts. I just used the stem portion of the dies. (does not look to be available anymore). Look at any of your flower dies or cut files.

Smaller flowers & stems: The Greetery Wildflower BontaniCuts

Bow: The Greetery Put a Bow on It.

Vase Panels: Darice wood grain embossing folder. Vanilla CS inked with Walnut Stain Distress ink.

Bow: Hero Arts Wish Ornament Yellow Glitter CS from Memory Box

Sentiment: SSS XL Greetings 2 White Heat embossed on Tim Holtz Black CS

Vase Panels: Diamond plate embossing folder (mine is not longer available, link is to a comparable one from Spellbinders) with DCWV Metallic Silver CS

Butterfly: Miss Kate Cuttable Monarch Butterly- cut one sing off to may it look as if the butterfly is landing on the flower.


I think I am going to make a mini envelope and note card to insert to the flower with the message to the recipient...just like a real bouquet.


These all fit in a 5X7 (a7) Envelope.


I hope this give you some ideas on how to recreate an inspirational look with items you may already have in your craft stash.
