Explosion Pop Up Card

Explosion Pop Up Card 
Hi friends...sharing a fun Pop Up Card perfect for the  festive season as it folds flat for mailing and packs a punch when you open it!
Explosion Pop Up Card 
The folds are origami folds...tricky to get right the  first time you try it [ I followed a tutorial from Mixed Up Crafts to make it]!
Explosion Pop Up Card 
I die cut cute little presents from metallic paper to make the  present. I love the  Presents die set from Crealies  and I think you can adapt the  same card design to make a cute birthday card.

I added a Merry Christmas to the  lower flap of the  card. I created my own pop up mechanism in the  center using 3 strips of card stock Here are the  Measurements and score guides
Score all strips on the  long side :
Strip A 3 x 4 inches : Score at 1/2, 2 3/4 and 3 1/2
Strip B 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches  : Score at 1/2, 2, and 2 3/4 
Strip C 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches : Score at 1/2, 1 1/4 and 2

Mountain fold all the  strips at the  scorelines as shown

Strip A will go at the  bottom followed by Strip B and then Strip C. These measurements are just guidelines. You can fashion your pop up to fit the  theme and size of your central pop up.
