Pop Up Fun Fold Card Tutorial

Yesterday I shared a fun fold pop up card for the Pals Blog Hop. I have lots of photos to share with you in today’s tutorial so you can make one too! This pop up card is much easier to make than it looks and it really is fun! I can’t wait to make more!

  • Fold and burnish score lines using a bone folder. Fold Old Olive cardstock forward, fold Pressed Petals DSP back
  • Adhere Old Olive DSP to the Old Olive card base.
  • Put Tear & Tape (or other strong adhesive such as Multipurpose Liquid Glue) along the 3/8″ score line. Fold up from 2nd score line and adhere.
  • Stamp sentiments on Very Vanilla cardstock with Golden Glitz Metallic Ink and Soft Suede. (I masked sentiments from Country Home and To A Wild Rose Stamp Sets.)
  • Punch and die cut leaves from Gold Foil using Leaf Punch, leaf from Every Season Punch Pack, and die from Botanical Tags Dies. Adhere to Very Vanilla panel.
  • Emboss sentiment layer with Subtle Embossing Folder for a linen look. Adhere to Pressed Petals DSP.
  • Add adhesive along 3/8″ strip of DSP panel and along bottom of card base. To adhere to card base:  Fold card base flat, center bottom of DSP along bottom of card base and adhere. Then fold adhesive on top of DSP down and adhere to card base.
  • Stamp sentiment for back of card on Very Vanilla. *Tip: For an easy masking technique when you want to stamp 2 colors, use the Stamparatus and a sticky note. First I stamped the sentiment in Golden Glitz Metallic Ink on to my cardstock.  I covered the words I didn’t want to stamp with a sticky note then inked my stamp again with Soft Suede and stamped. So easy!
  • Add leaf die above sentiment and adhere to DSP layer and to the back of card base.
