I added decorative elements to the card using cutouts from dies.
Hi all! This is Alexia and I’m back today with my last project for CutCardStock. Time flies, another term went by and I want to take this opportunity to thank CutCardStock for the amazing journey! The project I’m sharing today is a multi-dimensional pop-up card, something I have been playing a lot lately. I tried creating different depths, dimensions to achieve the look I want and it was fun to know the possibilities are unless! You can add layers of dimensions by just changing/adding the cut lines, let me show you what it means!
Here is the front of the card, the theme is house warming.
Prepare a cardstock size 6 1/2″ x 10″ and score in the middle at 5″ horizontally.
Cut small opening where the folded line is, the short lines are 1″ and the longer ones are 1 1/4″ long.
Open the cardstock and fold the cut lines inward as shown in picture above.
Prepare and trim patterned paper and colored cardstock to fit inside the card.
Adhere the patterned paper and cardstock to the card using double-sided tape.
Die-cut and adhere decorative elements to the card.
This is how it looks like! Print desired sentiment,adhere to the card and done!
For the outside of the card, trim a patterned cardstock size 6 1/5″ x 10 1/16″ and glue to the card. Trim off the excess if the patterned cardstock is too long (this is because the pop-up element will add some thickness to the card so you will need a longer patterned cardstock to cover the entire surface of the card).
Print or stamp sentiment for the front of the card if desired.
I hope you like the technique I’m sharing today, it’s actually quite easy to add three dimensional effect to the card and using this technique you are able to make many different dimensions of card! Like I say, the possibilities are endless! I hope you have a fabulous time making this and good bye for now! See you around the web! 🙂 – Alexia
