My Stamp Group friends will be coming over again on Saturday and here’s a preview of one project that we will be making. I’d like to give fellow demonstrator Julie Davison credit for sharing instructions on Pinterest for constructing this fun pop-up card that’s easy to make, but so impressive for the recipient!
The white piece inside is cut 7 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ and scored down the middle. Small pencil dots are marked on top at 2 1/2″ on either side of the middle score line, and also 2 1/2″ down on the score line. Then a diagonal score line is made on each side, from top dot to middle dot, which allows the card to be folded in a “V” as shown. (Erase the pencil marks after scoring.) After folding, the white card is attached inside a regular sized colored card, and the butterfly is secured to one side of the “V” with a foam dimensional. When the card is closed, the butterfly is folded inside,
ready to pop up as the card is opened!
I decided to follow a similar color scheme as the example on page 75 of the Annual Catalog illustrating the Watercolor Wings stamp set used here. Here are all of the materials that I used to make this unique card. Click on any picture for more information or to order:
