Hey there, here is a super easy Pop up card to make. I happen to be using Graphic 45 Papers, but you can use any 12x12 scrapbook paper. Pick 2 pieces you like (I like double sided papers
Fold each in half, then trim the main card paper to 8 inches long. Then trim the other piece 7.5 inches long, then trim off .25 inch of the long end. You want the inside piece to be just a bit smaller
On the INNER card, make a one inch long line about 2 inches down and 2.5 inches in. Don't go over 2.5 inches in, or your pop up will pop outside the margin of the card- make this line RED
Now with a pencil draw a heart, starting at the top of the RED line, and then from the bottom- my pencil is pointing to the RED line. (use a different color than pencil- I just had red handy)
Cut out by following the line, but stopping at the RED line. I REPEAT DO NOT CUT THROUGH THE RED LINE!!
now you look like this! I decided to go ahead and cut another heart inside of the first heart- but cut the entire heart
Now you should be looking like this. Gently take your finger and push the inner folds towards you, and then re crease the folds but going outwards
Take the inner card and glue to inside of outer card
now its all up to you to decorate!I added some Graphic 45 stickers, but you could write a personal message
I tool the inside heart I cut out and used it on the front and my focal point- glue down
I added some stickers- this cards for Mom
Then I added a chipboard frame, also form the Graphic 45 Mon Amour Collection. I added so foam dots and put in on top of the heart
For a little extra, I added a black and white Twine from the Twinery
now here we go! Pretty on the outside...
and fun on the inside!
