Thursdays with Sandiebella


hiya sistahs, happy Thursday-with-Sandiebella!
Today Sandiebella teaches us how to make a beautiful CENTER-POP=UP CARD

Scoring board and bone folder
Ruler and pencil
How to:
Stamp Tiny Townie Big Brother onto white card and colour using your preferred medium.
Set the image aside to work on the card.

Cut white card: 
10″ x 5″
10.5″ x 5″
4″ x 5.25″

Score the 10.5″ x 5″ piece at 4″, 5.25″ and 6.5″

Measure and mark at 0.75″ on each side of the 6.5″ score line and 0.75″ in from the edge on the line. Score diagonally as shown. Repeat on the opposite side.

Valley fold the diagonal lines and mountain fold the centre scoreline.

On the 5.25″ score line mark at 0.5″ from each side. Cut a slit approx 1/8″ wide from between the 0.5″ marks.

Mountain fold the centre score line.

Score the 4″ x 5.25″ piece of card at 0.5″ on the long side.

Score the 10″ x 5″ piece at 5″ on the long side.

Fold the 0.5″ section back and apply adhesive to the under side of it. Line the score line up to the 5″ score line of the base card, centered across the width of the base.

Cut a selection of papers to cover the top of the card and the pop-up flap.

Slide the pop-up flap through the slit on the top layer.

Apply adhesive to the underside of the top layer.

Line up with the edges of the card base and stick it down.

Repeat with the back section.

Cut the image to size, ensuring it is below the slit when the card is open. This will ensure it doesn’t snag when opening and closing the card.

Stamp the sentiment on to a strip of white card and mat with a piece of coordinating paper

Using foam tape/dots, adhere on the section in front of the pop-up mechanism

Cut a selection of papers for the outside of the card and decorate as desired.
