Pansy Petals Fold Back Pop Up Card

 Hi Everyone,

I am taking part in a Blog Hop today and the theme is 'Fun Fold' cards and if you follow me, you know that these are my absolute favourite cards to make. You may have arrived at my page from Kelly's blog, or be one of my followers, however you got here, welcome and thank you.  I thought I would choose my favourite designer series papers to go with it and have used the beautiful Pansy Petals. My inspiration came from Mixed Up Crafts for this card.


1 piece of soft succulent card stock 10" x 7", 1 piece 4 1/2" square, 2 pieces 2 1/4" square
1 piece of basic white 3 3/4" x 6 7/8", 1 piece 4 1/4" square, 2 pieces 2" square
1 piece of dsp 4 3/4" x 6 3/4", 2 pieces 2 1/4" x 6 3/4"
Scraps of the dsp with the flowers and leaves to die cut/fussy cut
Evening evergreen ink
Pansy Patch stamp set
Pansy dies
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive
Paper snips


On the long side score the soft succulent card stock at 2 1/2" and 5", fold and burnish to make a Z fold shape.

Put the 5" fold to the top of the score board and score at 1 1/2" and 5 1/2" but ONLY to the 1" mark. Then score a line between these two points to join them up. With the paper snips cut down from the fold on the 1" score lines to the horizontal score that you have just made. Push the central section in see picture, you will need to be careful and coax it into place.

Add the dsp layer to the back and the smaller section next to it by cutting round the pop up (mine is slightly off but the finished pop up hides that).Mark with a pencil about 1/8" either side of the pop up and cut down approx 1 1/4", try it for size and adhere in place when you are happy with the fit.  Add the remaining dsp piece to the front panel.

Put the 4 1/2" square in the trimmer with two opposite points in the cutting guide and make a diagonal cut, repeat this with the 4" piece of basic white.

Stamp a sentiment on the basic white so that it will sit in the centre point of the triangle and then adhere in place on the soft succulent layer.  Now add this to the pop up section, line it up so that the points fall equally on either side of the pop up and it is flush with the inside of the card.

Layer up the two lots of smaller squares and adhere to the card front in a diamond shape as shown.

Either die cut or fussy cut as many flowers and leaves as you like and adhere them in place on the two squares and on the inside as required.

Adhere the remaining piece of basic white to the back of the card to write your message.

I do hope that you like my card and will give it a try.
