3 D Pop Up Card Tutorial

Window Pop Up Card
Hi friends , I have a passion for making pop up cards and one of my favorite objects in card making is "windows".[Here are earlier cards using the Cheery Lynn  window die Fancy Fold CardPop Up Window CardWindow Frame Card, Pop Up Christmas Card]
Pop Up Card
This Pop Up Card stands on its own like a box and can be hung like a decoration too! There are see through windows on all 4 sides and you can see a pearl and sequin studded tree inside [Yes I am still not over the Christmas /Winter effect!!]

I added a Happy New Year inside the pop up card!

And this is how the 3D Pop Up Card folds absolutely flat for mailing!

Pop Up Card tutorial 
I know most people are scared of making Pop Up Cards...I love making Pop Up cards and feel so euphoric when I design my own Pop Up Card design and it actually works!
Ha Ha so yeah...sharing how I made it!
Pop Up Card Tutorial 
Since I designed my Pop Up card to fit my Cheery Lynn  window die, I had to choose a card stock size large enough to fit my windows! I used an Ivory sheet 16.5 x  6 inches and scored at 0.5 inch and every 4 inch.If you dont have such a huge piece of card join together 2 pieces of 8.5 x 6 inch long cards.
Pop Up Card Tutorial 
Die cut or handcut windows on each 4 inch panel.I left a 1.5 inch space below the  windows to add my pop up elements within the card.
Pop Up Card Tutorial 
Fold the score lines and you will get a box like shape. Stick the 0.5 inch tab and you have actually made a simple box style pop up card!
But if you want to add pop up elements within your windows....
Score a 5 x 1 inch piece of card 0.5 inch from either end
Pop Up Card Tutorial 
Fold the 0.5 inch tabs in opposite directions as shown in the pop up card tutorial photo below.I like to snip off tiny triangles on the ends of gluing tabs to get a wedge shape which makes gluing so much more neater.
Pop Up Card Tutorial 
Add your pop up element to this piece of card. I dressed up a Spellbinders tree with pearls and sequins and centered it on my Pop Up Card strip.
Pop Up Card Tutorial 
Apply glue on one tab and stick it to the area under the window.Keep the card strip nicely horizontal or your pop up element will look wonky!
Pop Up Card Tutorial 
Fold over the pop up card strip as shown and apply glue to the other tab as shown in the pop up card tutorial photo below.
Pop Up Card Tutorial 
Making sure the tab is kept folded with glue surface above...fold over your window panel card and stick firmly...your pop up element will have found its place on an area below the opposite window and will pop up nicely on opening!
Pop Up Card Tutorial 
Once your pop up element is looking good...if you want you can add more layers inside in the same way . you can even add pop up elements on the top part of the box like hanging stars or ornaments to accompany your tree!
Pop Up Card Tutorial 
Finally glue the tab on your window panel card and complete your 3 D pop up card!
Pop Up Card Tutorial 
I added Spellbinders Borderabilies to form an arch above my window and  added double arches Martha Stewart  punched elements under the windows.
Pop Up Card Tutorial 
The most challenging part about making a Pop Up card in white was keeping it clean with all the tab gluing that was involved!!
I hope you liked my Pop Up Card design !
Supplies : Dies : Cheery Lynn  Butterfly , Cheery Lynn  Window A, Cheery Lynn  Embellishments, Spellbinders Curved Borders 2  , Spellbinders Christmas tree, Tattered Lace Rose [ the skirt of the tree],Elizabeth Craft Dies Happy New Year Punches : Martha Stewart double arch.

  9. Bee-utiful. Like the look of all crisp white. Do not have cardstock larger than 12" x 12" but see that you indicate that you can use two 8 1/2" x 6". I have a window die of sorts. I may give this a try.
