I have had quite a few of my blogger girls want the directions for this pop up so I thought Why not do a tutorial for you all on it .. ok you will need your cutter , bone folder , sticky strip and of course card stock and a stamp set to decorate . and I used white gg ribbon with mine today so if you may want that also :-). Remember you can click on any photo and view larger . Also I have added the quick link to this turorial under Dawns Turorials on the left hand side for future use .
Now you will fold all your score lines & also add your sticky strip to both ends where the 1" score line is as shown in photo. This is also the time to will stamp the base of your card . I am using the new holiday mini set Seaon of Joy
Ok now measure your cut line and this will be your main size so your pop up can slide through . Make sure to cut smaller then the slit so it slides smoothly ( Dawns Side note for my whisper white pop up piece it measures 2 3/4 X 5 1/4 the purely pomagrante piece to layer my whisper white onto measures 3" x 5 1/2 ) Stamp your pop up piece before you insert or go to next step .
Ok now that you have your pop up piece cut and stamped you will slide this piece from the back side of your base card through the cut slit center as shown in photo ... Make sure your stamped images are all on the same side Here is a view of what it looks like from the back side adhere the center pop up piece to one of the sides with sticky strip ( Place the pop up piece right to the edge of the 1' score line. Click to enlarge photo ) it will look like the photo of the back side .
You did it ! Yahoo!! Here this is what your card will look like opened up and sitting upright . To add ribbon just feed underneath and wrap around to front and tie easy peasy Right ? Here is a photo of the side view. This card will fold down flat and will fit in your standard size envelope( as shown in photo) .
Thanks girls Have a Fabulous weekend and let me see yours when you make one & post to your blog :-) Have FUN!
until later .. Happy Stampin!
