That got you thinking, right? How, you thought, would a pop-up card fit in a wedding celebration? Read on further for more information on this creative wedding idea.
A pop-up card works like a regular greeting card. Its main distinguishing characteristic is the pop-up mechanism found inside the card that allows card designers to create design elements that flop up and out. Literally, these cards include design elements that will pop out of the card when they are opened. These pop-up mechanisms are created using origami (paper folding), kirigami (paper cutting), or a combination of the two.
These days, designing and creating pop-up cards is made easier thanks to the proliferation of portable laser die-cutting machines like the Silhouette vector XD, Sizzix, and Cricut.
