Design Team Challenge | Fancy Fold | Flat Top Popup Card

Hi everyone, Happy Wednesday. 

Today I want to share a really fun pop-up card. The best part is that it folds flat for easy mailing and fits into a standard A2 size envelope.

Here is a side view:

And a view of the back:

Here is what I used:


Brown For Base: 4.25 x 8 3/8
Brown For Base: 3 x 4 7/8
Blue Front Panel: 2.75 x 3.25
Blue Back Panel: 4.25 x 4
White Front Panel: 2.5 x 3
White Back Panel: 4 x 3.75

God Is Fighting Stamp Set

Art Glitter Glue

Foam Squares

Glue Dots

Memento Black Ink

Spectrum Noir Markers (colors maple & cyan)

Cricut Trimmer

Bone Folder

Twine (optional)

Here is how I made it:

First, using the Cricut Trimmer, score the larger card base at 3/8, 1 3/8, 2 7/8, 3 7/8 (on the longer side). For the smaller card base, score at 3/8 and 1 3/8 (on the longer side). Crease all score marks really well with the bone folder.

Using the shield image from the stamp set, with the black ink. Stamp the larger card base on the front (only where all the score marks are), then flip over and stamp on the side with no score marks. Use black ink and stamp the little girl image on the smaller white front panel piece. Also stamp the sword on her right hand. Color in with markers. I used a Crayola black marker for the belt. Attach foam squares to the back of this piece. Stamp the greeting with black ink on the white back panel in the lower left corner. Use Art Glitter Glue to attach this to the back blue panel.

Assembling the card:

Start with the larger card base first. Lay flat so score marks are on the right (where we stamped) and are face down. So you should have the non scored (stamped) side on the left facing up. From the right side, fold over towards the left on the second score mark. Apply Art Glitter Glue to the small 3/8 flap. See below:

Fold the left side of the card over on the first score mark to lay flat. From into shape below:

For the smaller card base piece. Apply glue again to just the 3/8 flap. Attach to main card base lining up the non glued side with the main card base folded flat at the bottom. Be sure to center this piece. Then tuck under the 3/8 flap with glue on the front. See below:

I really hope all this makes sense :). Now, attach stamped image to the small blue front panel and adhere to card front. Flip over and adhere back panel. Form twine into a bow and attach to the front using a glue dot.

Hope all of you have a Wonderful Wednesday.

I wonder how this would look with pattern paper on the top portion? Hmm! I’m going to have to play. 🤓
