Blue Mountain Cover

Blue mountains
Another year has gone by. This moody cover showing a solitary blue mountain sets the recipient up for the perfect pop-up surprise. They will open the card to discover a colorful  slice of cake with wishes for a happy birthday, an invitation to a New Year’s party with a martini glass, or whatever pop-up you choose to pair it with.

Order prints to be shipped in bulk

When you want to mail out cards to a large group of people, printing and making them all yourself is not the best option. Most home printers can’t handle the thick card stock which is standard for greeting cards, so a DYI printed card won’t feel as satisfying. Please fill out the form below to request a quote for professionally printed cards in bulk.

All cards are professionally printed on heavy 13pt matte cover stock.

Restaurant Gift Card

The best presents are often those which can’t be wrapped in a box: experiences. Give the gift of dinner, a movie, tickets to a sports event or concert! Unfortunately, as wonderful as these are to receive, it is hard to turn experiences into an exciting tactile gift.

Here is your solution!

restaurant gift cardrestaurant gift card with coverDownload and make this very easy and quick pop-up card designed to present a restaurant gift card. The template includes a cover announcing that “Your Table Awaits…” with a simple design, printable on either white or colored card stock. Open the card and discover a table with two chairs. Notches will fix any standard plastic gift card prominently in place. 

Restaurant Gift Card “A la carte”

Download and make this printable template in just a few minutes (especially if you have the right tools) for a one stop solution, or customize it and decorate to your heart’s delight.

  • Use the cover which is included with the download, glue the pop-up interior to any standard 5″ by 7″ card, or design your own cover! 
  • Attach the restaurant gift card either on the wall above the table, or on the floor, like a carpet.
  • Add a table cloth (in the photo above, this was a piece of tissue fixed to the table with double-sided tape).
  • Draw on some plates, glasses, wall-paper, a hovering waiter, a bottle of wine, and presto! You have turned a generic plastic gift card into something really memorable and personal.
  • Add printed text to your design. Since this card is symmetrical, you can easily use the template as a background image to position any text you’d like to print on the front of the pop-up (the cut and fold lines are printed on the back of the pop-up elements, so they are not visible when the pop-up is glued to the cover).

3D Kaaba

Celebrate Eid al-Adha, the festival of the sacrifice, with this 3D pop-up representing the Kaaba at Mecca. This is the building the Prophet Ibrahim built with his son Ishmael after he proved to God the strength of his faith — and God spared him from making the sacrifice of his son’s life.kaaba-3d

This template is for the pop-up element only. You can attach the Kaaba to the card of your choice, whether that be a home-made creation or a store-bought printed card. It will fit on any standard sized card.

Although the printable pattern is formatted for a standard letter sized sheet (8.5″ by 11″), you can also print it on A4. After you cut out the shape with a pair of scissors, folding and gluing is very quick and easy. Download the template now and start crafting! No need to wait for shipping. Print and make as many as you wish for your friends and family.

The download includes two versions:

  • US version starts the week on Sundays and can be printed on 2 sheets of standard letter-sized paper (8.5″ by 11″).
  • A4 European version starts the week on Mondays. Months and days of week are written in English.
