Below are the pictures of the pop up card that I showed on my blog yesterday!
Below is a picture of the side of my completed card with the pop up's. Now I will try to explain how I made the folds on the inside of the card. Here goes!
Cut a piece of card stock at 10 1/2"x5 1/2" for your card base. (After everything is scored and folded, it will become a 5 1/2"x4 1/4" A2 card.)
With the 10 1/2" side at top of your score board (I used my Stampin' Trimmer), score at
4 1/4", 4 3/4", 5 1/4", 5 3/4", 6 1/4". See picture below.
Now, do a valley, mountain, valley, mountain and valley folds (accordion style). Your card base should look like the one in the picture below and take on the shape of a M:
Flip your card over. Your card now has a W shape as in the picture below. Add two sticky strips as shown in the picture below and adhere each adhesive fold to the next fold.
Flip your card back over. If done correctly, your folds should now take on a V shape as shown in the picture below. Add one piece of sticky strip to the inside of one of the folds.
(You are now ready to add your pop up's and decorate your card.)
Cut some 1/8" strips from a piece of acetate or sturdy window sheets. Adhere your decoration to the top of the 1/8" strip. Remove the protective liner from your sticky strip on your card base and adhere your decorated piece of acetate or window sheet to the adhesive.
When you have all the decorated pieces done and adhered on the sticky strip, put another line of sticky strip on the opposite inside fold and adhere the two folds together.
You should be all ready now to decorate the rest of your card.
I hope this inspires you to try a pop up card.
