Easter Pop Up Card

Hello fellow KnK-ers!

I know it seems a little early to be sharing an Easter Card but I’m sure it will be here before we know it, I’m certainly looking forward to Spring and the warmer weather it will bring :)

I used Make the Cut’s new Popup Card Studio to make the insert for my card today and then designed the card front in Make the Cut, the Cut File for both the insert and the card front is available at the end of today’s post (mtc format only today).

These are the Materials I used:

These are the Zing Settings I used:

  • Blade = Standard
  • Blade Height = 25 post-it notes
  • Offset = 0.30
  • Speed = 10
  • Force = 65
  • Passes = 1

Pic 1. The picture below shows all of the pieces you will need for today’s card. I cut a piece of Worldwin Worldwin Colormates Smooth & Silky Card in half to make a 6 inch square card, all of the other pieces were cut from Worldwin Cutmates Cardstock which I love as it cuts like a dream! As the card insert is quite intricate I definitely recommend Cutmates for this:

Pic 2. Starting with the card front, I glued the 2 card front layers together and also the 2 sentiment layers:

Pic 4. I popped my sentiment into place with some 3d foam pads and the card front is done, I set it aside for attaching to the card base after the insert had been added:

Pic 6. I attached double sided tape to just one side of the pop up insert and placed it into the card base, next I added tape to the other side of the insert and closed the card onto it to ensure perfect placement:
