Stand-Up Pop-Up Card Tutorial

Ok, I spent a good hour trying to figure out how to upload my finished printable tutorial to this site, but there just isn't a way that I could find! So here goes...

Main Color CS: 1 each of 4 ¼ x 11”, 2 7/8 x 5”, & 2 3/8 x 2 7/8”
2nd Color CS: 1 each of 3 x 5 ½” & 2 ½ x 3”
3rd Color CS: 1 each of 2 ¾ x 4 7/8” & 2 ¼ x 2 ¾”
Stamps of your choice-Fabulous Flowers used here
Cutting & Scoring blade with paper cutter, bone folder
Tombow Mono Multi glue or Sticky Strip
Ink pads of your choice- Pixie Pink, Pretty in Pink, Only Orange, Yo Yo Yellow, Green Galore, and Gable Green used here.
Embellishments of your choice- 2 way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Scallop circle & 5-Petal flower punches, CAD, and Pewter jumbo eyelets used here.

With the 4 ¼”x11” piece of CS, Score along long edge at 1”, 2 ¾”, 3 ¾”, & 5 ½”. Then flip to other end and score at 1”, 2 ¾”, and 3 ¾” again. The 5 ½” line is already scored.

Now line up the 5 ½” scored line with the cutting line in your paper cutter.
Notice the arrows in the center of your cutting blade handle. These mark the location of your blade. Line the arrow up with the 1 ½ cm mark on the cutting arm, and cut from 1 ½ cm to 9 cm mark

After you have decorated all of your pieces, assembled the matted panels, folded all score line and creased with bone folder; put glue or Sticky Strip on the “front” side of the 1” flaps on each end.

Slip the top of the large panel through the slit cut in the 5 ½” score line. Line bottom of panel up with edge of folded up 1” flap and then fold main piece in half, matching bottom edges up to be adhered to each other.

Take your small panel and line it up on the 1” section on the front of the card so it is placed where you want it. Then apply glue JUST IN THE 1” SECTION. Adhere you smallest panel.

Now to open your card, push down on the top fold and it turns into a Stand-up Card!
