Happy Birthday Popup Card Freebie

Hi everyone

It's been a while since I posted anything what with being away on holiday and then having to catch up with things. I have also been getting to know my new Cameo 3 and have to say that so far I am really impressed, it's a great step forward from my old faithful Cameo 1. Best of all it cuts thicker card but I love the automatic adjusting blade and the dual carriage plus the small storage area is quite useful too as I'm always forgetting where I've put my tools !!


Anyway on to the freebie. It's the first thing I've cut on my new toy and it's a popout card. I haven't decided what I'm going to put on the front yet but I hope you can make use of it.

  1. Hi Shirley, great freebie as usual. Can I ask what is the thickest gsm you have used with the 3 ... is the freebie on thick card, guessing not as an insert, but is fairly intricate. I need info as trying to decide if woth upgrading the original Cameo that I have, thanks, Jackiex

    1. Hi Jackie, haven't had chance to try cutting really thick card yet but I will and post the results on the Blog for you. It shouldn't be a problem as the new machine has a 2 mm clearance and you can get a deep cut blade as well. I only used 180'gsm for this card seeing as it is just an insert and quite intricate as you say. Will keep you posted. Shirley

  8. I've been on the fence about getting the Cameo 3 as my original Cameo is serving me well (I never got the Cameo 2 as there wasn't enough of a change to warrant it...to my way of thinking). But yours is an opinion I'd take to the bank! Guess I better start saving my pennies! Thanks! And the popup is lovely. Thank you so much!

  11. I looked at the svg file but I really didn't see how to assemble the card. How do I make the card once I cut out the pieces?

    1. Valley/mountain fold the dashed lines as per the photo. Put glue on the back avoiding the popup areas, align the centre fold line with the centre fold line of the base card and glue together. Tip - carefully close the card flat before the glue dries making sure nothing moves out of place. If you need more help email me, you can find the address on my website (link at top of page)
