Habby Holidayth Pop up Card

Hi There!  Welcome Rubber Cafe' Fans!

Today I have a fun "Pop Up Card" to share with you that I made with The Rubber Cafe' October Kit of the Month, "Christmas behind the scenes".

I used the add on stamp kit, "Santa's Workshop",  Scrap Happy Glue, memento ink, copic markers, and Score Tape.

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.  Add Candy embellishments from the kit.

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.

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

This is how the card should look when properly assembled.

For the main panel stamp the images on a white panel with black ink.
Trim panel around the image so that it fits on the card.
I left the top portion of the pole "out of the box".

Color the image with Markers and then adhere to the card with Scrap Happy Glue as shown! Add a dollop of Scrap Happy Glue to the ball on the hat and let it dry to tacky.  Then attach a bell.

Create the second sentiment panel by stamping it with black ink on a white  panel.  Back it with a red patterned paper.  Adhere to the top of the base with  Scrap Happy Glue. Add candy cane and bow embellishments from the kit.

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


Adhesives: The Rubber Cafe' - Scrap Happy Sheer Glue, Score Tape
