Exquisite Pop-Up Cards Open to Reveal Intricately Detailed 3D Architecture

Memorable greeting cards offer more than just a kind sentiment–they double as works of art. For the architecture lover in your life, Bogdan Zolochevsky has created a series of unforgettable pop-up cards that depict stunning miniaturized structures. Each elegant creation folds flat but opens to reveal intricate buildings such as Prague's The Church of Our Lady before Tn and its astronomical clock.

To produce these spectacular gifts, a structure is first modeled to tiny scale. Afterwards, its parts are laser cut into flat shapes using high-quality cardboard. The individual elements are then assembled so they can be both flattened or displayed as a three-dimensional model on a table for your heartfelt message to live on as a cherished art object.

Zolochevsky sells the unique cards through an Etsy shop called ColibriGift.
