A248 Wizard School Card

NEWSFLASH! Phoenix Trading is no more BUT many of the designs on this page and fabulous NEW ones are available from me as an Independent Flamingo Paperie Partner. I have written a new post 3D Pop Up Cards with current designs (click link to view) or you can just visit my shopping website and order if you’re in the UK. There are now at least 6 Create A Scene cards like the Wizard School pictured here + other pop up greeting cards to choose from. I look forward to helping you find the perfect pop up greeting cards to buy online!   Phoenix Trading cards are such amazing quality with wonderful detail in the designs that so many of them are worthy of framing as a piece of art. Add a 3D or pop-out element and you have a selection of fabulous pop up greeting cards. They look amazing framed or on display! Indeed many traders and customers buy the greeting cards just to frame them. I will share some examples further down this page (use the contents list below to jump ahead if you like). A248 Wizard School is new for October 2016 – magic isn’t it? Framed artwork makes a fabulous gift idea or decoration for your own home. For example: baby designs in the nursery, butterflies in a little girls room and transport or dinosaurs for the boys. Although I have to say my daughter also loves her dinosaurs and enjoys her girly stuff too with having 3 brothers!

3D pop up greeting cards

Create-A-Scene Greeting Cards

The image above shows five of the create-a-scene greeting cards. The Fairy Door was the first design released. It was so popular among Phoenix Traders and customers that it sold out within a record breaking 24 hours! A quick reprint was ordered and more designs followed in the next product release. You can view images of current designs on the shopping site.

Maybe what makes them so popular is the receiver of these greeting cards can set the card up as a scene.  There are characters and features that pop out of the card. Doors and windows pop open, the popped out features have fold back tab on them enabling them to stand upright.

What designs are available?

  • A241 Dragon Castle with a castle with gate that pops open, two knights and a fire-breathing dragon!
  • A231 Party House with a Happy Birthday banner on the house, doors that open and presents.
  • A242 Stables with opening stable door, horse, hay and child.
  • A230 Woodland Party with a tree house, hedgehog, fox, owl and other woodland animals.
  • A227 Fairy Door is a delightful fairy house with pop out toadstool and fairy.

NEW Wizard design available – not pictured in this post!

Pop Up Christmas Cards

You’re possibly wondering how much you need to pay for these wonderful, imaginative greeting card designs?

Each card is the Phoenix Trading regular greeting card price of  £1.75. But wait! If you choose 10 or more greeting cards from the £1.75 range (over 400 designs to choose from) you will only pay £1.40 per card! Amazing value I think you will agree.

Butterfly Baskets Pop Up Greeting Card

L309 Butterfly Baskets Greeting Card

Stunning is this beautiful greeting card with tiny butterflies that have wings to fold. The butterflies appear to be literally flying around the baskets!

You may need some help to construct this greeting card yourself upon receipt. Admittedly it is a little fiddly the first few times you fold them. I have constructed 100’s of them – yes they are a bestseller! LS309 is order code.

Due to popular demand Phoenix Trading released a video on YouTube (or watch below) with a demonstration on how to fold.

The top image is the front of the card with the lower image being the baskets on the inside popped up.

Hint: There is space on the back for your messages so as not to spoil the pretty design.

Pop Up Greeting Cards Features.

When you’re browsing the range online or in the brochure you will notice that some have pop-out or pop-up in their description. Also, when you send these designs to someone they can look on the back and see the shadows indicating which bits pop! Trust me none are as tricky as the Butterfly baskets!

In the 3 images above you can see that the elephant in S212 Party Elephant has rather large pop-out ears. The dragonflies of LS07 all have wings to carefully pop-out and fold back slightly so they look more realistic.The painted butterflies is one of my bestselling designs. Because when I was doing markets I used to take the framed one off my daughter’s wall with me, oh and it’s gorgeous!

I used a white box frame from Ikea and put a piece of coloured paper or card behind it. With all 9 sets of butterfly wings popped up you get little glimpses of the backing colour and it looks amazing! Note: I removed the glass for 2 reasons: so it didn’t smash at market or during an earthquake – thank you New Zealand for those shaky memories!

Pop Up Birthday Cards

All Phoenix Trading greeting cards (except most of the Christmas cards) are blank on the inside so you can personalise for any occasion. Find the pop up birthday card you like and write your own birthday greeting inside. Some designs do have Happy Birthday or Birthday Wishes printed on the front, while others can be used for occasions other than birthdays.

There are more designs with pop-out or pop-up features in the brochures – just look carefully at each description and you’ll get the idea. The photos don’t always do the designs their full credit as to how much fun they are!

One image below is Sailing Away (order code: DC76) which is a pop-up card – the card folds flat and has a large envelope for safer posting. I always suggest folding out flat for posting to avoid damage to the details along the popped edges. Up to you whether you pop or let the receiver pop – not quite as addictive and therapeutic as bubble-wrap but it comes close! DC55 is the Sewing Machine code you need if you just have to send one to a sewing fan. My Mum received this one from us for a birthday recently – may have been her 60th – shussh don’t tell everyone!

A Tri-fold design gives a 3D effect too.

TF20 trifold tea garden pop out greeting card

Tri-Fold Tea Garden Card TF20

Tri-fold greeting card designs as in the beautiful tea garden are a little like pop-out greeting cards. In addition they seem to create a 3D or three-dimensional effect. The card is long, but folds neatly in to 3 sections. Enabling the 3D greeting card to fit within a 5x5″ envelope (all Phoenix Trading greeting cards come with an envelope).

The three layers need to have their features popped out so that the depth in viewing can be fully appreciated with these designs.

Bonus: plenty of room for your message on the back. Although if you are my Gran she always sticks gold numbers on the front for our ages – yes even though I just turned 42 I still get gold stickers. I think it’s in case I forget!

Plenty more designs that make use of this effect including butterflies and daisies.

Butterfly Cupcakes Greeting Card

LS20 Butterfly Cupcakes Pop Up Butterflies

LS20 Butterfly Cupcakes was designed for the UK Butterfly tea parties to raise funds for charity.

The card design was so popular it has remained in the range since and regularly tops the monthly best-selling greeting card list.

Gently pop out the wings of each butterfly so they look amazing!

Beautifully painted in pastel colours and flittered to perfection it truly is a beautiful greeting card!

When I did markets I always had plenty in stock because sometimes one customer would just buy 10 to get them at the reduced price of £1.40 per card. That’s lots of friends and family getting gorgeous butterflies fluttering through their letterboxes!

3D Christmas Tree Card

XM56 Christmas Tree pop up 3D xmas card

3D Christmas Tree Card XM56

Time for a seasonal pop up card. My favourite Christmas Tree card since I started my Phoenix journey is this one.

It’s large, it comes in two halves that easily slot together and fold open for standing upright. I used one as a Christmas table centrepiece for years until I eventually replaced it with an advent calendar that was even bigger! The great thing about the advent calendars and this card is that they can be used for decoration and display year after year!

I believe this design is now in the Last Chance to Buy section of the website so don’t miss out!

At only £1.75 per Christmas Tree card they are great value. Combined with other everyday cards to get to 10 cards and bring the individual price down to £1.40 per card. Basically buy 10 and save 20%.

The Christmas house comes with Santa, reindeer, sleigh and a snowman to arrange.
