This Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Pop-Up Fun Fold is a cute 3 x3 inch Valentine’s card which is easy and fun to make.
Measurements: Rococo Rose Card Stock (CS) card base: 3x 6 inches with a score line at 3 inches; Blushing Bride CS: 2 1/2 x 4 inches.
You will also need 4 scalloped hearts. Two Rococo Rose CS and two Brushing Bride CS hearts punched with the scalloped heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack.
Start out stamping with the large sentiment heart. Stamp with the Rococo Rose ink onto the 2 1/2 x 4 inch Brushing Bride CS. Note: Be sure to use the Stampin’ Pierce mat or a catalog to get the best stamped image with the Photopolymer (see-through) stamps.
Next stamp the little lacey heart in Rococo Rose ink onto the center of the two Blushing Bride scalloped hearts. Continuing in the Rococo Rose ink, stamp the sentiment “Love You Lots” onto the center of the remaining Rococo Rose heart.
Scoring the Hearts
Set up the Trimmer to make score lines. Start by placing the right-hand edge on the 1/4 inch mark to the left of the center. Make a score line. Now move to the right so that the center of the heart is in place and score. Lastly, move the heart to the right again so that the left-hand edge is on the 1/4 inch mark and score. Repeat for all 3 hearts.
Each of the three hearts should look like this when you are finished scoring.
Putting It All Together
You will want to use a strong tape to adhere the pop-up portion of this card. I used the Tear & Tape that Stampin’ Up!® carries. The tape will be applied to the scalloped hearts as shown above.
To assemble the pop-up, start by using your Bone Folder on the center score line for the two Blushing Bride CS scalloped hearts. Remove the protective covering of the Tear & Tape on the Rococo Rose CS scalloped heart and lay it on the table face down. Adhere the Blushing Bride CS scalloped heart folded in half as shown on the right. Next adhere the other Blushing Bride CS scalloped heart on the left.
When you open it up it should look like this.
To continue to assemble the card pieces, use the Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the large sentiment heart piece to the remaining Rococo Rose CS scalloped heart.
The next step is to adhere the Square Vellum Doily. I just applied the glue to 3 small areas that will be covered with the scalloped heart.
To finish up the front, apply the Rococo Rose CS scalloped heart with the large sentiment heart stamped on it to the card front.
Installing the Pop-Up
To install the pop-up, first fold the pop-up heart in half as shown.
Lay the folded heart card piece onto the inside of the card as shown. Close the card and push firmly to adhere the pop-up to the inside.
When you open the card it will look like this!
The Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels are perfect for this card. I added five to the front of the card. Note: An odd number of rhinestones is visually more appealing than an even number.
Voila! You have made a fun pop-up to wish someone special a Happy Valentine’s Day!
