Card Samples, Thursdays with Sandiebella

Thursday with Sandiebella: Create a Vintage Farm Animals Pop Up Insert Card

Sandiebella is sharing a great idea for using the new Edgar & Molly stamp sets to create interactive cards. Even better, she’s showing us exactly how she did it! I love Thursdays.

Vintage Farm Animals Pop-Up Insert Card


White Card
Distress Oxide Inks – Mowed Lawn & Broken China
Other Dies: Grass Border, Barn, Pennant, Fence (optional)
Craft Knife
Scoring board

How to:

Cut 2 pieces of card to make a card base and card insert.
Card base – 5 7/8″ x 11.75″. Score at 5 7/8″ and fold
Insert – 5.5″ x 11″. Score at 5.5″ and fold.

Cut 2 pieces of card measuring 5.5″ x 5.5″. Use distress oxide inks to colour one piece blue and the other piece green.

On the blue one, splash some water droplets and dab with a dry cloth. This will give a marbling effect.

Using a grass border die, cut 2 pieces from the green card and layer on the bottom half of the blue piece.

Adhere the panel to the front of the 5 7/8″ square card base. Set aside.

Taking the card insert repeat the inking on the top inside section of the card, down to the centre scoreline, as shown below.

On the scoreline, measure in 1″ from the edge and make a mark with a pencil or craft knife. Then, using the ruler as a guide, cut 1″ up and 1″ down from the centre scoreline.

Repeat on the opposite side.

Score from cut line to cut line, on both sides of the scoreline.

Fold the centre section inwards and fold over the card. Crease with a bone folder.

When you open the card insert, it should look like this.

For the inside, use green card, or use ink on white card and make another 5.5″ wide grassy hill using the grass border die.

Apply adhesive to the bottom section of the pop up mechanism

Adhere the grass hill, ensuring it doesn’t go below the scoreline.

Apply wet glue to the back of the card insert, making sure not to get any on the pop up section. Adhere it to the inside of the large card by matching up the scorelines on both pieces.

Stamp the sent sentiment from Edgar and Molly Vintage Sentiment set onto the centre of a 4 3/8″ x 5 3/8″ piece of white card.

Stamp the Vintage Farm Animals onto white card and colour with your preferred medium.
Used on this card:
1 x Cow, 1 x Pig, 2 x Sheep and coloured with copic markers.
Colours used:
Cow – C1, C3, C7, C9. E41, E42, YR00, YR01
Pig – YR00, YR01, YR02, YR12
Sheep – E41, E42, E43
Use the coordinating  CUT-IT-OUT Dies or fussy cut the animals with a precision scissors.
Layer on any dies/elements as desired. Adhere the sentiment panel beneath the grassy hill.
Adhere the animals using wet glue or double sided tape.

When creating the scene on the outside, adhere the animals using foam tape/dots.

Finally, stamp the Birthday Greetings from the Vintage Sentiment set and cut out using a pennant die.

Trim to size and adhere at the top of the card.
