Simple Pop Up Card Tutorial ........

I have done this tutorial for Tek Tuesday over at The Character Cafe
don't forget to pop over there for their challenges as well.

The materials you will need for this tutorial are -
2 pieces of backing paper, 2 images, scissors, double sided tape, 1 card stock,
colour your images, the one I have used came from The Character Cafe
Cut a layer one piece of backing paper and one image for the front of the card.
and the second image how you would like it for the inside of the card.
Then cut the second sheet of backing paper to fit slightly smaller than the whole card,
then fold in half, (similar to adding a insert)

With it folded, and along the folded edge, draw a box like shown below,
this can be done anywhere and as wide or narrow as you want it for your image,
and also you can do more than one as long as you have the room.

Then cut just the straight sides only, from where the fold is,
Do not cut across the line at the top or the whole thing will fall out.

Then push it through so it shows up like the photo's above and below.

Put your double sided tape where you can see it on this photo,
and do this on both sides that will stick to the inside of the card,
making sure you have the flap pushed up on the inside.

stick one side at a time into your card, making the fold of the backing paper go into the fold of the card, (again just like adding a insert but sticking it all the way round one side at a time)
Then do same with the other side,

Then when opened you should have a little step showing like below,
which is where I use my tape to stick my image onto the side not the top of the step.

This is what the front looks like when finished,

And this is what the opened card looks like inside.
You can be elaborate or as plain as you like.

Hoped you liked this tutorial for a simple pop up card.
As I know several asked me how to do it when I showed some previous cards on earlier posts.
I am also entering this card into the following challenges -
Rosie Dee's - Carrot, Courgette and a Flower
Three Clovers - Nature
Creative Belli - Fall/Thanksgiving and a leaf
Thanks for looking,
Hope this has helped someone out there.
Back to my knitting now,

Hi Angie,
Thanks for this tutorial. I'll have to revisit to go through it step by step in my craftroom. I'm knackered today - the therapy is hard going but hopefully helping.
