Time for another fab DT Thursday tutorial from Sandiebella!

Stamping Bella DT Thursday: Create a Pop Up Card with Sandiebella

Pop Up Card


(you can buy both the LOVEY Gnomes rubber stamp and die as a bundle HERE)
White card
Patterned papers
Circle Die
Scoring board and bone folder

3D foam tape/dots

How To:

Cut a piece of white card measuring 11 1/8” x 4”
 Score at 3.75”, 7”, 7.5” and 10.75”

Fold and crease all the scorelines.

In the panel beside the 3/8″ section, cut a circle in the centre. This will be the window you will place the image behind. Be sure to keep the circle you just cut out, as you will use it later, on the front of the card.

Cut one piece of white card, , measuring 3 5/8″ x 3 7/8″, for the font of the card,  and one piece, measuring 3 1/8″ x 4″, for the inside panel behind the image.

Cut some patterned papers for the front of the card.

The large piece here is 3.5″ x 3.75″.
Adhere the patterned paper to the card front panel and set aside.

Stamp the images onto white card and colour them using your preferred medium. These are coloured using copic markers. Ensure to leave plenty of white space around the SMOOCHIE Gnomes, preferably stamping them into the centre of a 3 1/8″ x 4″ piece of white card/paper.

Take the white card you cut for the inside panel and adhere it down, then adhere the image on top. This just gives the back of the card extra weight, for stability.

Fold over the window, ensuring the edge of the card doesn’t cover the first scoreline. If it does overlap, trim the 3/8″ piece.

Apply adhesive to the 3/8″ strip

Then fold the front of the card down. Use a bone folder to burnish the edge where the adhesive is.

When you open up the card, your window should pop up.

Using the LOVEY gnomes CUT IT OUT Die to cut them out. Also, cut a scalloped circle slightly larger than the circle you cut out from the window panel.

Adhere the circle and scalloped circle together. Apply 3D foam tape/dots to the back of the Gnomes and stick them down onto the circle. Adhere the whole thing to the front of the card

Stamp and cut out the sentiment from the SMOOCHIE Gnomes set.

Adhere it under the window.

To finish the card, embellish as desired. I simply added some die cut hearts and a bow.
