How to make a coil pop-up card

Some convention-going demos posted samples using a coil to make pop-ups inside & I decided to try my hand at one, too! It was quick, easy, and looked pretty cool! I'm looking forward to playing more with this idea...here's the first (of many, I hope!) of my coil pop-up cards:

I used all retired colors along with Only Orange for the card base. I punched big stars out of Cool Carribean & stamped with small stars tone-on-tone and used a little Tempting Turqoise for the greeting.
I made the pop-up "mechanism" for inside the card...just cut out a big circle with your Coluzzle or any jumbo punch you might own & cut a freehand spiral into the center. You'll have to leave a big enough spot in the center to add adhesive & then add a little adhesive on the opposite side of the circle on the end of the "tail" of the spiral.
Check it out! I just added punched out stars using the big and small star punches from Stampin' Up & a little glitter here & there, of course!


Can anyone name those colors? Probably you guessed Purely Pomegranate & Cool Carribean, but the green goes way back before the In Colors were even a glint in Stampin' Up's eye...anyone else remember Luscious Lime? Yeah, I'm such a hoarder that I still have a stash of Luscious Lime cardstock (and just finally parted with the ink pad!)...discontinued back in 2000 along with the ever-hated Rocket Red!

I made this card for my friend & fellow demo, Patty Bennett who was just named to SU's advisory board...and maybe even more importantly, she gave me a catalog to tide me over until my shipment arrives! :-P
