My Card Today
My card for you today is a Pop Up card. and I know you will enjoy making one as much as I do. Firstly, the box style makes it great to display and it also folds flat for mailing. Way back in March 2020 (whoa – pre-pandemic!), I created my first Pop Up card, which was so much fun to create that it quickly became a fun fold favorite. Fast forward to today, I have a new one that came together super fast, using the Let’s Set Sail stamp set and coordinating punch, just in time for Father’s Day. However, it makes a great masculine card for any occasion. Since my husband loves the ocean, this bundle was a must-have for me.
My secrets to making this Quiet Meadow project
- Firstly, I had to create the A6 card base, so here are the measurements of all the paper used.
- Card measurements: Card Base #1: 4-1/4″ x 10-3/4″ and scored at 1/2,” 1-1/2,” 3-3/4,” 4-3/4″
- Panels for Card Base:
- #1: Cardstock: 4″ x 5-3/4″ and DSP: 3-7/8″ x 5-5/8″
- #2: Cardstock: 3/4″ x 4″ (2) and DSP: 5/8″ x 3-7/8″ (2)
- #3: Cardstock: 2″ x 4″ and DSP: 7/8″ x 3-7/8″
- Front Panel (across bottom):
- Cardstock #1: 1-3/4″ x 5,” (score at 3/8″ and 1-3/8″)
- Cardstock #2: 3-3/8″ x 1-1/2″ and 7/8″ x 1-1/2″
- Once all of the panels were adhered together and to the card base, I added liquid glue to the edges that would be connecting them to the card base. Secret: Fold the card flat to make sure it is in the right place and straight.
Now, the FUN Part!
- Firstly, I stamped the boat and punched the saila out then colored the masts with Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends. After doing that, I decided to give it more dimension so I punched out two more layers and adhered them all together.
- After that, I stamped the sentiment from He’s All That and cropped it out with coordinating All That die. Then, I stamped the little birds to give the card just a bit of “life.”
- Finally, to finish the card, I made a panel for the back of the card to add a personal message.
