Pop Up Card Tutorial

Thank you all for your patience.  My parents have been visiting from FL, so I’ve been busy this week!  I cannot take credit for inventing this technique nor these dimensions.  The original tutorial I used came from Splitcoaststampers, but I doubt that was THE original either.

Oh my goodness.  I had no idea HOW MUCH WORK making a tutorial is!  A HUGE thank you to all those who have created tutorials from which I’ve learned.  Wow.  Now I need a nap.  And a HUGER thank you to my DH, the photographer.   If you’re in New England and need an awesome photographer for your senior pictures/wedding/Bar-Bat Mitzvah, check out Blueberry Photo.  He’s the best!!  Ok, shameless plug over. 



Supplies Needed:
Paper cutter with cutting & scoring blades and/or bone folder
4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of cardstock or Designer Series Paper (base – here Razzleberry Lemonade)
2-1/2″ x 5″ piece of cardstock (tag – here Whisper White)
2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of cardstock (tag matting – here Melon Mambo)
Scraps of cardstock for tag pull embellishment (here Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo)
Sticky Strip™
Hobby Blade
Self Healing Mat or Mat Pack
Round Tab Punch
3/16″ corner rounder punch
Accessories (whatever you want to use for embellishing)


If not using DSP, stamp 4  1/4″ x 11″ paper as desired.

score(web)Score along the 11″ side at 1″, 2-3/4″, 3-3/4″, 5-1/2″, 7-1/4″, 8-1/4″, and 10″. 

Crease with bone folder.  score lines


5-8-mark(web)Turn base over.  On the middle score (5 1/2″) make a pencil mark 5/8″ in from each side.





Use your hobby blade and self healing mat to cut along between pencil marks.  If you use accessories on your tag (like I did on the Sweet 16 Pop Up card), you’ll want to make the slit wider to accomodate the width of the accessories.




Stamp your tag and round the corners.  Round the corners of the mat and adhere tag to mat.  Decorate top of tag with a pretty pull.  Make sure you check the full size of the tag with the pull next to your envelope so that you don’t make it too big to fit!



folded(web)Fold your score lines of the base up so that you can see how the the base goes together.  




sticky-strip(web)Apply Sticky Strip™ to the stamped side on the end 1″ scored sections. Put one strip on the inside (next to the score line) on one side, and at the edge of the paper on the other side.



attach-tag(web)Slide the tag through the slit.  Line it up with the bottom of the base and make sure it’s centered.  Peel the red liner from the Sticky Stip and adhere to tag.




close-bottom(web)Fold up the other side of the base and make sure it’s even.  Remove the red line from the sticky strip and adhere to tag and other side of the base.





Add embellishments to the front 1″ section of the base.

This card will fold flat and fit into a standard envelope.  envelope(web)
