POP -UP BIRTHDAY CARD TEMPLATE!
Well I saw this being made with the Craft Robo and thought to myself I'll have a go at designing one of these with Cricut Design Studio and Cricut Expression. Well I was so excited when it worked posted it on the Cricut MB and guess what I left out the H!!!!!. Luckily a very nice MB member emailed me to tell me!! Lol luckily it had not been up for long so not many people had downloaded it!
Anyway I went back to the drawing board and redid it and here's the result. I am quite pleased and I will put some step by step instructions as where to score and fold although when you see it you'll probably be able to figure this out easily.
I am going to try to embed the .cut file this will be my first time so be patient if I can't do it straight away!
Hope you can use this in some way, obviously you can use your choice of card and embellishment and decorate as you wish! I'm already thinking names in cards!
Ok posted all pictures above haven't mastered the art of editing words in between the pictures yet so here are the instructions for putting the template together. For easiness I have just cut the design in black and white so you can see the design.
The card is made with 2 pieces of A4(81/2x11") card. After cutting the white card score as in pic 3 as you can see 3 score lines. Fold as in pic 4. Take another piece of A4 and fold in half lengthways. I use a dry glue or doublesided to adhere cutout to card. Place the cutout inside card so that your middle score matches up with the middle score of the black card, then stick down one edge to the bottom inside of your card. Fold down your cut out then glue top and close the black card over the top . This way you get perfect positioning and your card will close flat. Voila see Pic 1&2. My instructions are probably as clear as mud! lol but its's easy really!!
Right then now I will attempt to embed the.cut file.! Please leave me a little comment if you like it.
