Creative Cafe' Valentine Pop Up Card

Hi There!  Welcome to The Rubber Cafe' blog!  
Today I have a fun "Pop Up Card" to share with you that I made with the January For the Love of Cats and Dogs Creative Cafe' Kit.  In addition to the For the Love of Cats and Dogs Creative Cafe' Kit, I used Scrap Happy Glue, memento ink, copic markers, Score Tape, and Spellbinder dies.

Here is a look at the completed Pop Up Card. Keep scrolling down for step by step instructions to create one on your own.

Start by cutting one of the pieces of red cardstock in half to create a 11" x 4 1/4" panel.

Score the panel at 1", 2-3/4", 3-3/4", 5-1/2", 7-1/4", 8-1/4", and 10".
Cut 2 pieces of patterned paper 4 1/8" x 7/8" and cut 1 piece that is  3 3/8" x 4 1/8".
Use Scrap Happy Glue to adhere these three panels to the red card base as shown in the picture below.

Cut a thin slit in the center of the middle panel starting and stopping 3/4" from the edge.

Stamp sentiment with black ink on a white die cut label or thin white strip of cardstock and adhere to the lower panel with Scrap Happy Glue.  Adhere a heart to each end of the sentiment strip.


Cut a 2 3/4" x 5 1/4" piece of red cardstock
Cut a 2 1/2" x 5" piece of patterned paper


Adhere the patterned paper panel to the red panel with Scrap Happy Glue.

Apply a strip of Score Tape to each end of the card base as shown in the picture below.

Slide the smaller panel through the slot of the card base and adhere it together as show.

: Experiment with this step before pulling off the
Score Tape to make sure you understand it and that you are putting everything together correctly.

Step 1:

Step 2:

This is how the card should look when properly assembled.

Create the second sentiment panel by stamping "Happy Valentine's Day" with black ink on a white die cut oval panel.  Back it with a red scallop edge die cut oval panel.  Adhere to the top of the base with  Scrap Happy Glue.

Add heart embellishments.

For the main panel stamp the images on a white panel with black ink.
Die cut panel into a circle that fits around the circle sentiment.
Back with a red die cut scallop circle.

Color the image with Markers and then adhere to the card with Scrap Happy Glue as shown!

You should be able to slide the entire Pop Up card down flat so it will fit into an envelope.

That's it!  I hope you you enjoyed today's "Pop Up Card" tutorial and that you will give it a try!
