3D Double-Sided Pop-Up Card With Tutorial

Sunday, May 28, 2017
Made this awhile back with detailed step-by-step instructions to create this pop-up card. I doubled the fun by adding pop-up elements on both sides of the card. Check out the following pictures to see what I mean! When the card is open it can sit on the wide base, perfect for mantelpiece display.

It's like glueing two separate pop-up cards together and since it's thicker than it usually is, I had to make a card "box" instead of using the regular envelope. If the box is sturdy enough, it can even be mailed as it is. I think it would look very cute.


Step 1: Prepare two construction cardstocks size 5 ¼" x 10", score and fold in half.

Step 2: Make two small cuts (about 1" long each) along the folded line (as shown in picture above). Fold inward to form the pop-up base for the card, as illustrated in third picture above. Do the same to the other construction cardstock.

Step 3: Prepare all the cut-out pieces to be used as decorations. These mixed media dies can be cut on different mediums such as (chipboard, foam felt and so on). 

Step 4: Color the foam flowers (if preferred) with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers.

Step 5: Prepare the patterned paper for the card base, trim paper accordingly to accommodate the 3D pop-up piece. Adhere the patterned papers to the card base and start embellishing the card as desired.

Step 6: Connect two finished pop-up cards together with double-sided tapes. 



Step 7: Decorate the outside of the card with patterned paper.

Step 8: Make the envelope box for the 3D pop-up card using the measurement in picture above.  Embellish the box with butterfly shape cut-out and ribbon.

Remove the card from the envelope box and a back-to-back pop-up card will be revealed

Rock On Card With Groovin' 60

Thursday, May 18, 2017
Sharing a card created using Sheena's Groovin' 60's collection stencils and Just For Men collection stamps set. Loving the 60's feel? This collection is for you then. I typically like the shadow's stamp set of the board skater and the birthday sentiments that come with the set. It's so groovy and beautiful. Check out this other project I made with other Groovin' 60's stencil here and another card here using the stamps set, you get what I mean now? It's just too cute to pass on! 

The stencils are great for creating backgrounds for cards, scrapbook layout or even mixed media canvas! I decided to use it as card background by tracing the shape of the stencil's patterns on a watercolor cardstock using Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers and fill in the rest of the traced area with the same markers but using the brush nib this time instead of the fine nib which I used for tracing. Lastly I stamped the board skater image in black over the colored flowers.

You Fill My Heart With Love Card With Foiling Kit

Friday, May 5, 2017
Wonder what you can do with the Crafter's Companion foiling kit you bought? What type of projects are your favorite when it comes to paper crafting? The two main paper crafting I do are scrapbooking (this is actually what that got me into crafting in the first place) and card making but since it takes longer to scrapbook so I decided to make a card instead today (I should probably get back to scrapbooking soon I hope, pictures of my kids are piling up!).

Here is the card I made using the foiling kit, no heat no mess. Like I mentioned in my previous posts, it's like rub-ons and it works like a charm every time! Of course I had to use my favorite gold and silver cardstocks from the Together Forever collection by Sara Davies (if you don't know by now how much I looove gold and glittery cardstocks). hehe. The thickness of the cardstock is also perfect for dry embossing, it gives you the depth and beautiful texture you can feel on your fingers. Simply love! See end of post for the complete list of supplies.
