Hello and Welcome to Fun Fold Friday! Today I have a Springtime Joy Pop-Up Easter Card using the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series paper. Thank you to Jana Muller of Jana’s Paperdreams for the pop-up card idea!
This fun Easter pop-up card is actually fairly simple to make. I made about 20 of them to sell at a Bazaar I did last weekend. I also sent one to each of my siblings.
Measurements: Gorgeous Grape Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper (DSP): 4 x 5 1/4 inches; Basic White CS: 1 7/8 x 2 3/4 inch oval die-cut (from the Layering Ovals Dies) and 4 x 5 1/4 inches (not pictured); Gorgeous Grape CS: 3 x 4 inches scored at 1, 2 and 3 inches and 3/4 x 2 1/4 inches with a score line at 1 1/4 inches.
Using the Gorgeous Grape ink stamp the sentiment “Easter is a lovely reminder of new beginnings” toward the bottom of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS.
Stamp whichever critter you like in the Memento ink and color with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. For this card I ended up using the cute sheep and the basket of eggs. The colors of Stampin’ Blends for the sheep are Gray Granite and Smoky Slate. The flowers are colored in Highland Heather, Melon Mambo, Just Jade and Daffodil Delight. I colored the Easter basket with Crumb Cake and Soft Suede and used Petal Pink, Purple Posy, Balmy Blue and So Saffron for the Easter eggs.
Assembling the Card
Adhere the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Hydrangea Hill DSP to the front of the Gorgeous Grape CS card base by applying the adhesive ONLY to the outer edge.
The next step is to use the Stitched Shapes Die Cuts and cut out the center of the card front. We will not be using the DSP oval for this card. We will be using the Gorgeous Grape CS stitched oval.
Use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold at the 4 1/4 inch score line on the Gorgeous Grape CS card base. Open the card and adhere the Basic White CS sentiment card piece to the inside.
Assembling the Pop Up
Use the Bone Folder to make a crisp fold at the 1, 2 nd 3 inch score lines on the 3 x 4 inch Gorgeous Grape CS. Fold in half with the open end on top.
Apply a strong adhesive to the upper 1/4, turn the card piece around and adhere to the center of the inside of the card. The open ends should be on top.
Apply a strip of adhesive to the upper edge of the folded 3 x 4 inch Gorgeous Grape CS and then close the card to adhere it.
When you open the card it should look like this. This is the pop-up box for your sheep.
Fold the 3/4 x 2 1/4 inch Gorgeous Grape CS card piece at the 1 1/4 inch score line. The lengths will be uneven. Apply adhesive to the top portion of the longer side.
Turn the card piece over and adhere it to the center of the Pop-up box.
Adhere the Basic White CS oval to the Gorgeous Grape CS stitched oval. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sheep and the Easter basket to the oval.
Apply adhesive to the tab and press the stitched oval card piece into place. Hold until secure.
Viola! You have just created a cute pop-up Easter card!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you give this a try. The first time may be a little challenging, but then it is a breeze!
Sorry I missed a few days this week. I was more busy than I expected for the craft bazaar I did with my friends Amanda and Christy. And I was totally exhausted afterward! I just needed a few days to recover. Bazaars are a lot of work!
Have a great weekend and a Blessed Easter!
