Fun Fold Friday - #17 Peaceful Poppies Pop Out Card

Hi Everyone,

Today's card is a simple pop out card. I wanted to use the beautiful Peaceful Poppies designer series paper for one last time as it retires in a few days.  The new Stampin' Up! catalogue is available to order from soon and it is filled with some awesome new dsp's and stamp sets, so if you would like a copy let me know.  The dsp that I have used for the front of this card is one I have been hoarding, it's so pretty I didn't want to cut it, but here goes...

There is a video tutorial over on my YouTube channel, click the link below:


1 piece of  blackberry bliss card stock 10" x 7" and 1 piece 6" x 4"
1 piece of whisper white 2 1/4" x 3 3/4"
1 piece of dsp 4 7/8" x 6 7/8"
2 pieces of contrasting dsp 4 7/8" x 6 7/8"
Scraps of whisper white, old olive and blackberry bliss
Blackberry bliss ink
Painted poppies stamp set
Sending You Thoughts stamp set
Pretty Label punch
Paper snips
Leaf punch
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


Score the larger piece of blackberry bliss at 5" on the long side and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Score the smaller piece at 1/2", 3" and 5 1/2" on the long side and fold and burnish to make the pop out mechanism for the inside.

Adhere the dsp layers to the front and inside of the card.

Add adhesive to the 1/2" tab sections on either side of the smaller card piece. Attach to the inside of the card so that the fold in the mechanism is level with the fold in the card. The tab pieces fold under and the centre fold will pop outwards (see picture).

Stamp a sentiment on the piece of whisper white and adhere to the left hand side of the pop out section.

Stamp three of the large poppies on the scrap of whisper white using the blackberry bliss ink and then fussy cut them out.

Stamp the sentiment for the front on a scrap of whisper white and punch out with the pretty label punch.  Punch a second pretty label shape using a scrap of blackberry bliss card stock.  Cute the blackberry bliss one in half and arrange on the back of the stamped one so that an edge of the colour can be seen top and bottom of the label (see picture).  Add to the front of the card with dimensionals.

Punch out 3 leaf shapes with the leaf punch from the scraps of old olive card.

Arrange the flowers on the right hand side of the pop out section with the leaves around them, I've added dimensionals to the flowers and tucked the leaves around them.  make sure that the flowers don't overhang the edges of the card when it's closed.

I hope that you will give this a try.
