Check out this fun fruity rocking card I made! I have seen these cards before but never tried to make one myself. You can make them any size but I chose to make mine so it'd fit in a regular A2 envelope.
The fruit and scalloped circle were cut using my Cricut. The design was already available in Design Space as a pop up card but I only wanted the fruit bundle.
Using multiple colors from CutCardStock Pop Tone and Basis, I was able to create a fun and bright bundle of fruit! See the list of colors below. If you click on my affiliate link, I get a small commission for all purchases.
Figuring out the placement of all the cut pieces:
To create the rocking base, you basically fold a circle in half and then decorate! Yup, that easy! I used a white base since there was so much color with the fruit and scalloped circle. The scalloped circle is 5" and the circle is 5.5". You can fold the scalloped circle to decorate both the front and back but I decided to cut mine in half and only adhere it to the front since I am adding an easel to the inside.
White pen was used to add highlights to some areas and I popped up the sentiment using foam adhesive.
The important things to remember is the placement of the decorative elements - you don't want it to exceed the 4.25" height in order to fit in the envelope and to keep the card balanced. In other words, don't put too many elements on one side of the card.
Now, you can either put your sentiment and greeting inside the card or create an easel for the inside and writing the sentiment & greeting to the back like I did.
