Pop Up Gingerbread Card

We made a gingerbread house, all sugary sweet, placed it in a pop card sent from our house to yours, to give you a sweet holiday treat. Today we are bringing you a fun but easy technique....Pop up cards! So gather up those supplies and let’s create! 


We start with a 6 x 6 square card base. To make that base cut 1 piece of red cardstock to 6 x 12 and score it in the middle at 6 inches. Fold and burnish. 

House Brace 

1 piece of white cardstock cut to 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches. Score at 2 1/2; 5; 7 1/2; and 10 inches, Fold on the score lines to form a square ( see video) 

* Next you are going to glue the gingerbread housed to the square brace.... you will glue these along the bottom of the roofline ( see video) 


Next cut 2 pieces of white cardstock ( or the color of your card base) to 1 x 1 inch, then fold them in half to create the tabs that you will use to attach the houses to the card base. (see video) 


**Now we are going to attach the house section to the card base. To do that measure down from top of base 1 in and make a pencil line. Next cut a 2 x 2-inch square out of cardstock ( this is just for measuring the placement of houses) and line it up on that center line of the card base and trace the bottom section of that square. ( see video) Now attach that house mechanism. 

Now its time to decorate the front of your card!
