Surprise Gift!!

Open this card and a gift “pops” out at you!!

The inside of this card was made using our Simple Pop-Out Die Set. This set contains 3 Dies that can be used individually to make a “pop-out” on the inside of the card. On a simple pop-out, you can attach an object to coordinate with the outside of your card. For example on a birthday card, you could attach a cupcake to the pop-out so it pops outs and gives dimension to the inside of your card. The various size Dies allows you to pop your object out at various depths.

Use all 3 Dies to create the stacked gift. I️ ran each Die they separately so I️ could place them close together … there is approximately 3/8th inch in between each gift section. I️ will be doing a video tutorial and will post the link here when I’m done.

Basically, you have a Scored Card (I used an A-2 Card) for you card base or the front of the card. Then you use a second Scored Card and trim it slightly smaller than your card base (if desired), enabling you to see a slight border of your card base color. On my sample, I️ started with a Wild Cherry Scored Card and used a White Scored Card for the inside….stamped with the Impression Obsession Ticking Stamp using a Lime Pastel Ink Pad.

On each Die, there are “notches” in the center … line up those notches with the score of the White card. Hold in place with a piece of removable tape (or washi tape, or a post it) and run thru your die cutting machine. Start with the biggest die approximately 3/8 inch from the bottom, running each Die separately. Then run the next size Die, placing it about an 1/8 inch above the first one, etc.

Carefully fold, so the “pop-outs” are to the inside of the card … Valley, mountain, valley Fold. Do this individually for each section.

Attach to the inside of the card base,making sure not to put tape on the sections that are popped out. Use patterned, sparkly or coordinating paper to decorate the gift sections
