I decided to use two of the teapot die-cuts to make this beautiful shabby chic greeting card. The card base is the standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. I layered designer paper over a taupe piece of card stock, leaving 1/8th of an inch off the edges (for that layered effect). Read More
The first thing that I do in my project is the pop-up feature. You will trim and score your card stock at the following:
4 pieces cut at 3×5 1/2 inches
place horizontally on scoring board and score them at 3 inches
place vertically on scoring board and score them at 1/2 inch
Your pieces will now have a 3 inch dimension at the bottom and 2 1/2 inch dimension at the top. (Which are now separated by the 3 inch score mark). You will trim off the top dimension at the 1/2 inch mark until it meets that horizontal score mark (3 inches).
Fold along your score lines, then take two of the four pieces that you initially trimmed at 3×5 1/2 inches and cut off the top portion, right along that 3 inch score mark.
You’ll then trim 3 pieces of card stock at 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches
Then you’ll score the three pieces at a half an inch on both ends and fold in the same direction.
The Card Base
Trim a piece of card stock to 12 x 6
Place it horizontally on your scoring board and score at 5 1/2, then 6 1/2
Take papers from the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Collection and cut four pieces at 5 3/8 x 5 7/8 inches and two pieces at 7/8 x 5 7/8 inches.
I’ve put together this video tutorial so that you can view and follow along the entire process.
Tip: Work on the parts that take the longest first. This way your pop up card project will go by a lot smoother and seemingly faster. Off camera I took care of all of my fussy-cutting. I’m glad I did!
