These pop-up cards form part of a new range which went on sale at my stall at the Handmade Christmas at The O2 market in London, December 13-15. http://www.handmadechristmas.co.uk/
The graphics were designed by me using hand-drawn illustrations and finished with Adobe Illustrator. Printing done in the UK, the pop-up pieces were cut using my craft cutters and the cards were all hand-assembled by a friend and me.
The roundness in the 3D shapes was achieved using 80gsm paper with 160gsm internal parts using a technique I patented in the UK.
Below are photos of all eight new pop-up cards; each set begins with a picture of the front cover. There were four other new card designs developed alongside these using a new mechanism which will be showcased in another project on Behance.
The pop-ups go from flat to 3D, and back to flat again, smoothly and easily as you open and close the cards.
These received a great reaction from customers at the market and I'd love feedback from anyone seeing them here on Behance.
The reindeer moves from right to left as you open the card, making it look like it's flying through the air.
