It’s time for a new Creative Creases challenge. Firstly, thanks to all those who participated in my last challenge! If you haven’t played in my challenge yet, I hope I can inspire you to join me in the challenge that’s starting today! The Top Pick for the last challenge can be found in the Creative Creases post that you can find HERE with the link to enter the current challenge. I finally got a chance to make a Foldback Popup card and it was so much fun to do! Firstly, I just had to play with the Honeybee Home bundle, because I loved the delicate images. Then, I paired it with the gorgeous designer paper in the Heart & Home collection. Although I made a couple of adjustments, I have posted the tutorial that guided me below so keep on reading!

Honeybee Home Foldback Popup Card by Secrets To Stamping

My secrets to making this project

  • Firstly, here is the Splitcoaststampers tutorial I used for a guide to make this card. My A6 card measures 4-1/2″ x 6-1/4″ when closed.
  • Cardstock measurements:
    • Fresh Freesia Card Base: 9″ x 6-1/4″ and scored at 2-1/4″ and 4-1/2″ on the 9″ side.
    • Misty Moonlight Cardstock:
      • 6″ x 2″ (2)
      • 2-1/4″ square (2) and cut diagonally (Triangles on inside)
      • 1-3/4” square (2) (diamonds on card front)
      • 2 3/4” (2), cut 1 in half diagonally and trim off 1″ (middle square on card front)
    • White Cardstock:
      • Stitched Rectangle square for inside sentiment (for top of 2-3/4″ Misty Moonlight square)
      • 2-5/8″ square for middle square
    • DSP #1:
      • 2″ square (2) and cut diagonally (I also embossed them)
      • 1- 5/8″ square (2) cut from small Stitched Rectangle die
    • DSP #2:
      • 5-7/8″ x 1-7/8″ (2)

Now, the FUN Part!

  • Firstly, I colored the flowers and bee and cut them out with their coordinating dies.
  • Then, the fun part of this card was putting it all together! I actually started from the inside/back panel and worked my way to the front except leaving the sentiment panel till the end so I could work the layers out right. They aren’t perfect but not bad for my first try! (Next time, I might make the back panel just a tad smaller to give me more “wiggle room.”
  • It was the middle panel that I did differently from the Splitcoaststampers tutorial, because I wanted to hide the trimmed square behind it. By doing that, I was able to add the flower for more decoration.
  • Once the middle and back panels were complete, I placed the two front squares around the back done. Then, I placed the flowers onto the squares. Once they were in place, I decided a little pearl bling would really dress them up!
  • Finally, I glued the sentiment panel and lined it up with the front panel so that the front one would completely cover up the sentiment on the inside.

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:
