Maymay’s Mintay Designer Michelle’s Tucked Hearts Card

Hello it’s Michelle! I’ve created a Tucked Hearts Card with inside popup feature inspired by the butterflies & stripes within the Better Day Ahead Collection.

Supply List:

Step One:

Cut card base. 7-3/4” x 5-1/4” Score & fold in half. (3-7/8”)
Starting at the bottom of cards folded edge draw a vertical one inch line at 1” and 3-1/2”.  Cut both lines stopping at 1” and score straight across meeting both 1” cuts. Fold score line back and forth. You should have a 3-1/2” rectangle that’s deep.

Step Two:

Open card and gently push rectangle towards inside of card.

Step Three:

Cut outer card base.
7-3/8” x 5” score and fold in half at 3-3/4”

Step Four:

Cut inside sleeve for popup feature. Score 1/4” across top and 1” down middle. Cut 1/4 tab in center top stopping at 1/4” score line. Also cut outer edge of tabs so it doesn’t rub on card. Glue both tabs down. Glue finished sleeve over popup feature.

Step Five: 

Cut outer mat using striped sheet.
3-1/2” x 4-3/4”  Using mini hole punch, punch 1/4” holes on every other line as shown. Cut a slit at 1/2” and 3” across on same line as holes.

Step Six:

Thread beads or charms through holes starting at bottom inside out. Tuck thread back through top hole.

Step Seven:
Knot and secure both beads on opposite side of mat. Line entire back edges with approximately 1/4” foam tape strips.

Step Eight:
Glue outer card evenly on top of card base. Center mat to top of layered card. Stamp any sentiment on lines.

Step Nine:

Randomly glue butterflies to inside popup feature and card.

Step Ten:

Punch & decorate 2” hearts any way you like. They can also be stamped & written on. Tuck hearts to finish.

Thank you for visiting and I hope I’ve inspired you with this card idea. Happy crafting!
