Flowers are Popping Up

I recently had the privilege to spend some time with Sandy McCauley and to learn from her how to use the portion of the PopUp Card Studio Software that creates the 180 Degree Open type of popup cards.  Thus today’s post is a greeting card in which I used both types of popup mechanisms.  I also used my KNK Studio software and my Make the Cut software for creating shapes and text as well as editing the popup card shapes.

Here is a picture of the front of the card.

When you open the card flat (it is a top fold card) here is what you see.

The front base really is the same color as the popup flower.  The camera, however, saw it differently.

On the “back” side of the popup flower here is what you see.

And if you look at the opened card from the side, here is what you see.

Card Side-Optimized

Materials Used:

Various Cardstocks and Printed Scrapbook Papers in several colors

Double sided scrapbook tape 

Wall Vinyl

A flower brad

McGill stylus with 8mm round end


Machine:  KNK 15″ Maxx Air

Red Cap blade (Standard Material)

Force:  45 for Printed Scrapbook Papers, 72 for Cardstocks  (some cardstocks required two passes because of a textured surface), 13 for Vinyl

Speed:  80

Blade Height:  25 PIN


Creating this card was a challenge which I thoroughly enjoyed.  I could not have done it without Sandy’s help and instruction.  The same card could be used for many different occasions by just changing the words that were cut from the vinyl.

The files to create the card are available by clicking on the link below.
