“How to make a pop up card” is a question I get asked time and time again, so I thought I would show people how it’s done.
Below you will find a detailed step by step guide how to make a pop up card using a simple technique and a few embellishments.
Pop up cards make people smile as they are fun and give the recipient a nice surprise when they open the card. This particular card was really fun to make and can be easily adapted to suit the embellishments you have in your supplies.
Begin making the pop up cards template by folding a piece of white A4 hammered card stock in half. I have used a bone tool to ensure the edge is folded properly. I have used hammered card stock because it gives a nice texture, however plain will also work just as well.
When your pop up card template is closed, the outside should look like this.
I wanted to make this card for someone that loves cakes but you can make a pop up card for any occasion by simply using different wording and embellishments.
Next, put together the decoupage or embellishments you are going to use for the seats. Here I have used a number of different cup cakes.
Place your card message above the cup cakes or alternatively you can place the message on the bottom half, and hand write your greeting at the top. The choice is down to you.
Cut a sheet of themed scrapbook paper slightly smaller than the pink card. The reason we are cutting each piece smaller than the other is to give a mat and layered effect when all the papers are attached to each other.
Tie a length of organza ribbon around the left hand side of the themed paper and secure it on the back using tape.
Place the entire panel onto the front of the folded card using tape. When you are happy with both the inside and the outside of the pop up card you can adhere the two together using double sided tape.
You do not have to be an experienced card maker to learn how to make a pop card. So what are you waiting for?
