Hi There fellow KNK-ers!
As I mentioned last week, I have one of those big Birthdays ending in ‘0’ coming up in my Family soon so I thought it would be fun to use my Zing to make a pop-up card of their age.
I have done my best to make a pop-up card insert to cover each of the big milestone ages for you today. Although they can be used inside any card I also have a card front for you which can be used with any of the inserts. Both cut files are available for you at the end of the post 🙂
I cut all of my elements from Worldwin Cutmates Cardstock, I wouldn’t normally use Cutmates for a card base but as I will be attaching an extra layer inside, it will be plenty sturdy enough.
I used my Zing with Make the Cut software. My settings were:
- height – 25 post-it notes
- blade – standard
- offset – 0.30
- speed – 10
- force – 65
- passes – 1
Here are all of the elements needed to create today’s card. You will need a blank card base, your chosen insert, the lettering and its backing layer for the card front:
Gluing the individual letters onto their backing layer is a little time consuming, but once done, there is a nice large surface area on the reverse to attach 3d foam pads on to for popping onto the card base:
Moving onto the insert, you will need to fold along all of the perforated lines before attaching your insert into your card. All of the fold lines are Valley Folds (they should resemble a V) except the second fold from the top which is a Mountain Fold (this should resemble an upside down V):
You will need to apply adhesive around all of the fold lines and at the edge of the insert, I have used double sided tape. Attach your insert into your card one side at a time to ensure accurate placement:
Here’s how the completed card front looks:
…and here is what is waiting inside:
