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.
- Mintay Better Days Ahead Collection
- Pink Cardstock
- Scotch Foam Tape
- Beads or charms
- XOXO stamp from Envelope Stamp Set
- 2” Heart Punch
- Cutter Bee Scissors
- Craft Glue
- Mini hole punch
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.
Open card and gently push rectangle towards inside of card.
Cut outer card base.
7-3/8” x 5” score and fold in half at 3-3/4”
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.
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.
Thread beads or charms through holes starting at bottom inside out. Tuck thread back through top hole.
Knot and secure both beads on opposite side of mat. Line entire back edges with approximately 1/4” foam tape strips.
Glue outer card evenly on top of card base. Center mat to top of layered card. Stamp any sentiment on lines.
Randomly glue butterflies to inside popup feature and card.
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!
