{Spotlight Project} Cornelia Puts The Spotlight On A Pop-up Card

Hi, Cornelia here today, showing you how to make a pop-up card.


You may already know how to do that, or perhaps you own special dies to make one. I have never made one and this was on my to do list now for quite a while.....So I gave it a try. It is quite easy.

My STAMPlorations supplies:

I started out cutting a card base 5 1/2 by 8.5 inches  and scored it in the center to get an A2 card.


I laid my dies onto it to get an idea where to cut and how wide the cuts should be. I folded the card over and marked my cuts. The deeper you cut, the further away from the base your figures/animals or what ever you choose to put there will be.


I cut my marks with a scissor and then you fold the cut the opposite way your card is folded, so you get those squares to stick out.


I die cut and colored the giraffe, elephant and balloons and glued them to those squares.



That's how the card looks when it is folded.


I then stamped the sentiment inside - would be easier I you do that first.....




And I took a piece of PP from the same 6x6 block of papers and covered the outside to hide those cuts and indentations. Added another sentiment to make it look more like a card.


I hope you liked this and perhaps you'll give it a try!


Remember if you try out any of the techniques from our Spotlight posts, make sure to hook your project up at our Spotlight Project Showcase gallery.


See you in March!
