Creating a Pop-up Card

   Hello, Mandi from MJ's Kraze, here again. Last week, I shared with you are love card and today, I will be showing you how to use die cuts on the inside of your card with a simple pop-up feature. 

   First off cut liner card base a 1/4" smaller than your card base. Here I did a folded 5 1/4"x 4" so it fits an A2 card. I wanted two pop-up features so I did 4 horizontal cuts along the fold, 2 cuts are about 1" and the other 2 are about 3/4". Then connect the matching cuts with a vertical scoreline.
   Push the two pop-ups in so it looks like this. Adhere cardstock liner to your card base. 
    When it comes to adding the die cuts, you want to adhere to one side of the folded mechanism so the fold is free to move. I used the lovely butterfly dies from Jeanine's Art.  I had one die-cut on the right side of the top fold and the bottom fold it is on the left. To tie the front card design to the inside, I added some of the Tim Holtz Funky Floral die cuts from Sizzix to the writing area. Here is what the inside of the card looks like.
   Now let's look back to the outside. See how decorating the inside can make a handmade card look even more special. 

Don't forget to come to join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

  1. TFS, Mand! Such an easy approach for pop ups. Love the gorgeous butterflies. I am going to try this, for sure. Pop up cards are becoming one of my favorite things to make.
