Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. Today’s card is one I have made several times. I love this Pop-Up fun fold!
I used the Affectionately Your Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card base. This piece is a thick cardstock with copper embossing. Oh how I love it! It is retiring tomorrow so if I were you I would stock up now…it’s even on sale!!! Click HERE to add this to your shopping cart.
To make the pop up card you need a piece of cardstock measuring 4 1/4 x 11. Score at 1, 2 3/4, 3 3/4, 5 1/2, 7 1/4, 8 1/4, 10. Line it up in the personal trimmer in the center (at the 5 1/2 inch score line) and trim from 3/4 inches – 3 1/2 inches. The arrow on the cutting blade makes it easy to see where to cut.
Next, fold the cardstock along the center cut line and trim the opening with paper snips for a clean cut along the score line. Then fold along all score lines. Apply Tear & Tape Adhesive along the top and bottom of the card base.
I heat embossed the sentiment from Big on Birthdays on a piece of 2 1/2 x 5 1/4 Night of Navy cardstock using Copper Embossing Powder. I layered the sentiment on Flirty Flamingo cardstock that’s just 1/4″ larger (2 3/4 x 5 1/2). Notice how I stamped higher on the cardstock to make sure it would show when the card is sitting in the base. I used the Star Blast Edgelits Dies (also retiring) to cut the design from Copper Foil. I adhered it with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen.
The card slides up and down through the slot. It’s so cool how it folds flat for mailing and is free standing once it is opened. I wrapped some of the new Copper Trim around the card and tied a bow. I punched the flower from Flirty Flamingo cardstock using the Pansy Punch and stamped the center with VersaMark using the Love & Affection Stamp Set and heat embossed it before adhering it to the card front. I adhered a piece of 2 1.4 x 6″ piece of DSP to the envelope and trimmed the excess.
Here are some other Pop-Up cards I made previously using the Gift of Love Stamp Set (retiring May 31). You can click on the image to see the original post with lots photos.

Jeanie, this is awesome and yet another card I know will take several attempts before it even resembles yours. I think Jeanie Stark has dictated how I’ll be spending my summer. I can’t wait for tomorrow.
I can’t wait for summer….vacation, beach, and lots of stamping!!!
Great pop up card! I love the infinity shot…..it shows how dedicated you are when doing a swap and I am sure the recipients felt very special.
Thanks Mary Ann! I enjoy card swaps…especially getting to open the cards and see everyone’s masterpieces!
P is for pretty and perfect! I have never made one of these and they are so much fun! I am sitting here playing with my PP kit making donut cards for National Doughnut Day 6/2. Can’t you just see a donut (however you wish to spell it) popped up here on one of these sitting in a Bakery Shop or even a box of those wonderful delights at work with this pop up card with the donut on it saying Happy National Doughnut Day!
I love the infinity shot and that card is so much fun complete with the little butterfly. Oh, one of these days I will try it, I promise!
I think it is so cool that our Paper Pumpkin coincides with National Donut Day! A friend of mine is having a donut birthday party for her daughter on Saturday and I am going to have all the guests make Paper Pumpkin donut cards!! Thank goodness for refill kits!!! Fun!!!
P is for Project ! This is a PROJECT that I definitely want to try because it has that WOW factor !
Love your Swap line up ! How pretty ! My mind is racing with all kinds of seasonal cards using this technique ! Thank you for the time you put into showing us exactly how to proceed in doing these !!
You are right Sonny… This would be nice to make to display on a desk on shelf. I love your idea of different seasonal ones!
I love pop-up cards so want to try this! Fun and so Pretty! That copper embossing makes every card special. I too love your lineup of the swap cards. TFS.
I love heat embossing. It is fun to watch it transform. A quick and easy way to step up a card!
