Here's how I made this:
Heart, Stem & Leaves and the Heart & Wing set from white mat board. Cut the Heart & Wing twice, but only the heart, not the wings.
Kites Framelits set, which includes both the dies and coordinating stamps. The piece to the far right is green kraft core cardstock, it looks black on the photo. I used Specialty Stamping paper for the rest of the kite (love this paper). The pieces of the kite were stamped with the same colours I used to ink the hearts (Mustard Seed, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and Rusty Hinge) and I also used them to ink the little flags. The 'frame' was stamped with Archival Ink Jet Black.
heart folder. Then it was sanded and inked.
Winged Hearts pop-up from Specialty Stamping paper. If you don't have the pop 'n cuts base die, you can use the ordinary base tray. Don't fold the pop up yet, it will make the inking harder.
My mask picked up some tiny bits and pieces from my cutting pad. It might have been a good idea to place a scrap piece of paper in between, or a thin piece of acetate.
Kites Framelits set from Specialty Stamping paper. Emboss the two smaller clouds in the Bubble folder.
I wanted to mat the pop-up part on another shade of green kraft core and die cut both edges with the Scallops On the Edge die. Sand the cardstock.
Time to assemble everything. Adhere the clouds and the green hill on a black mat and then glue to the base cardstock. Find a photo that fits and cut it out. My son holds a balloon in the original version of this photo, so it worked nicely with him holding the kite. I also glued an acorn to his other hand.
Assemble the kite and add a piece of twine to it. Adhere with foam dots.
Adhere the hearts with foam dots for dimension, add stems and leaves. Then glue a lot of leaves and branches at the bottom of the card.
The Heart & Wing set Movers & Shapers die coordinate perfectly with the Winged Hearts pop-up die and I added one of the Glossy Accent hearts to the big heart and die cut a small heart from a piece of Specialty Paper which had been stamped with a grid stamp, using Mustard Seed. This was glued to the red heart.

Glue leaves and branches along the bottom.
So many fun possibilities with the pop 'n cuts dies! I will share another two photo pop-ups in a few days time and a pop-up layout next week.
