Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here.
Today I want to share with you a fun technique, a gatefold double pop up card. I continue to be impressed by all of the things that you can do with Pop It Ups dies since you are not limited by your card size and design. Let me show you how I made my card.
1. Cut and score your card bases as well as your layering pieces and accessories. You will need to cut a piece of ivory cardstock at 10” x 7” and score at 2.5 and 7.5”. You will also need to cut a piece of pink cardstock at 9 ¾” x 6 ¾” and score at 2 3/8” and 7 3/8”. I also cut two panels of patterned paper at 2 ¼” x 6 ¾” for the front of the card. Additional paper panels were cut at 3 5/8” x 5 5/8” and at 3 7/8” x 5 7/8” to layer together for the belly band. Cut a strips of paper at 10 x2 7/8 and one at 10” x 2 ¾”. Cut an ivory panel with the Lorna Label and an ivory panel with the Lucy Label Pop Up die. Cut leaves from the Rose die and fussy cut a few roses from the patterned paper.
2. Place Lucy Label die on the 2 3/8” score line of the pink paper and run through your die cutting machine. Repeat the process with the 7 3/8” score line. Train your Pop Up to pop up.
3. Adhere your pink cardstock to the middle inside of the ivory cardstock.
4. Adhere the left and panels together avoiding you pop up area. Repeat the process with the right side of the panels.
5. Adhere your labels and decorator piece inside the card.
6. Adhere the two 2 ¼” x 6 ¾” panels to the front of the card.
7. Adhere the 3 5/8” x 5 5/8” panel to the 3 7/8” x 5 7/8” panel. Also adhere the two 10” strips together and score at 2 ½”.
8. Attach the panel to the 2 ½” scored side of the 10” strip. Wrap the other side of the strip around the card and attach the panel making a band around the card. This will keep the card from popping open prematurely.
Your card is now complete and is a 5 x 7 size card when folded up.
