~ Tutorial Thursday - Pop-up Card ~

Hi everyone!

Nicolette here and today I am sharing with you a fun pop-up card tutorial.  Now I know this idea has been around forever, however, in all my years of crafting, I have never made one these before.  Shocker, I know...right?!  So I thought, if I haven't made one, surely someone else hasn't ever made one and would like to know how, too!

My idea all started with the rockin' Hippos in the new Rock On! Clear Stamp Set and the awesome new musical dies that La-La Land Crafts just released.  I thought how fun it would be to create a stage on the inside of the card and when you opened it up the hippos would pop up as if they were performing their latest hits.

Ta-dah! stinkin' cute did my idea turn out?!!!  I seriously couldn't be any happier if I tried!  I chose the blue dotted designer paper from the Blue Christmas Designer Paper Pack for the background as I thought it look liked an actual stage backdrop with stage lighting shining on it.  I really love the effect the paper adds to the design.

To make the words, Rock Star, stand out, I used three different colors of cardstock and offset them from each other to give off that 3-D effect.  Plus, I used my handy dandy tweezers and precision point glue pen and popped the itsy-bitsy teeny-tiny yellow dots into the black Rock Star die cut.  I love how "Rock Star" looks like it is actually lit up with lights.

I, of course, had to add a shaker element to the front of my card.  I offset the stars and added in some yellow, black and iridescent white sequins for some extra birthday fun.

Now let's get down to the fun!

This is a regular A2 sized card with a card base measuring at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".

Step 1

Using the new checkered stencil from the Everything Is Rosy Layering Stencil Set, emboss a
 4 7/8" x 3 5/8" piece of white cardstock.  I used a pieces of low tack tape to keep my stencil in place.


After embossing, leave stencil on cardstock and sponge Dandelion and Cantaloupe Memento Ink through the stencil.  Set aside.

Step 3

For steps 3, 4, 5 and 6 I am using a piece of white paper to demonstrate what you would do to a black piece of cardstock so you can see it better.  First, cut a piece of black cardstock to 8 1/4" x 5 3/8" and score at 4 1/8".  Fold in half with the right side of cardstock on the inside.

Step 4

At the fold, (this should be the wrong side of your cardstock) measure like I have done above and cut as shown.  Do NOT cut tabs off.  Fold tabs as shown to create a crease.

Step 5

Turn cardstock over and fold tabs in the other direction to create another crease.  Lay tabs back down.

Step 6

Open card up and carefully invert tabs to the inside of the card.  Close and re-open the card so the inverted tabs will get a good crease in the correct direction and will pop up when the card is opened.


Die cut a white piece of cardstock using the largest Scalloped Rectangles Die.  Cut a piece of designer paper to 4 7/8" x 3 5/8" and adhere to white scalloped die cut.  Lay this piece on top of black cardstock as shown above.  With a pencil, lightly mark where the tabs will go. 

Step 8

Cut away this portion of the paper slightly wider than the actual tabs.  I used a white piece of paper so you had a visual.

Step 9

Now you can slide this piece in and adhere to card.

Step 10

You will repeat the same steps as you did in Steps 7, 8 and 9 for the floor of the stage except you will use the stenciled piece of cardstock you made in Step 1 and you will leave the tabs attached instead of cutting them off.  *See Step 12.

Step 11

Step 12

This is how I left the tabs.  You can cut them off, however I wanted the hippos to look like they were standing on the continuation of the stage instead of having black tabs behind them.  It's totally your preference.  Adhere this piece to the card.

This is how your stage should look so far.

Step 13

Die cut two sets of curtains using the Stage Curtain Die Set out of white cardstock.  Adhere sides of curtains to card using different levels of dimensional foam tape.  Offset valences together using glue pen.  Adhere to card using a double layer of dimensional foam tape.  I added yellow star diecuts to the valence using the star from the Rock Star Die.

Step 15
Extra Reinforcement Hinge

I needed to create an extra reinforcement hinge to put behind the drumming hippo.  Because I wanted him to sit behind the other hippos, my tab only came out 1/2".  The tab was not tall enough to withhold the size of the image so I created an extra hinge out of a scrap piece of black cardstock and attached it using glue dots.  You can see how it looks in the photo below.

Step 16

Adhere your hippos to the pop-up tabs using strong tape or glue dots.  Fold the card closed so they get adhered really well to the tabs.  Now you can decorate your card any way you would like.  

I stamped and cut out the sentiment.  I adhered the sentiment to the the smaller Folding Banners Die using dimensional foam tape.
