Then I wrote up my instructions and created another one from them to make sure they were accurate.
Want my tutorial for this card? Here it is:
Folded Pop-Up Card
Cut a base: 5 ½ x 8 ½, scored at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4 on the long side. Crease the 4 1/4 score. (In the sample, I stamped around to create a background at this point, or it can be done before scoring.)
Measure down 1" and mark from each end of the 4 1/4 fold. Snip in 1" at each mark. Now score from the end of one cut to the end of the other cut. Crease these scores to form the "step" to create a pop-up.
Now crease the 2 1/8 score, lining the base edge up to the 4 1/4 score. This forms the cover fold.
Now for the "pieces". (If you want more layers, use these pieces for the mats and cut the image shapes a bit smaller.)
(1) 2 x 2, cut diagonally for the corners
(2) 1 7/8 x 1 7/8 for the cover (olive branches on this sample)
(1) 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 for the sentiment
(1) For the pop-up piece, cut a 4" piece, measure up from one corner to 4", mark, and cut from mark diagonally to the other corner (OR cut a 4" square and cut diagonally to create two triangles, only one will be used)
Line the marks up on the cutting "ditch" and cut.
(2) 1 3/4 for cover
(1) 2 1/8 for sentiment
(1) 3 7/8 for the pop-up
Decorate the pieces as desired. For this example, I used the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set.
Using glue or strong adhesive, attach the two images to the cover, lining the corners up on the fold, the corner pieces onto the inside cover, along with the sentiment. Place the adhesive on the top of the "step". Line up the longer side of the pop-up triangle to the step and attach.
