I'm sure you guessed that it wouldn't take me long to start using the new StampinUp! Hello Irresistible Suite!
Here is a sweet pop up card that used pillars to create the dimension and also fold flat. I've made various styles of pillar cards before and there are several tutorials on YouTube but as usual I've put my own twist on it and sized to fit A4 card for UK and Europe. This card has an acetate window aperture to support the beautiful bloom; I sized the circular border on the front to fit the circular die and allow the contrasting Flirty Flamingo card to show through. It is adhered to a proper folding card base so there is enough room to write - one of my pet peeves with some card styles!
Here are the Imperial dimensions I used:
Base card: 4 1/8 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 DSP 3 7/8 x 5 1/4
Basic white inside layer 3 7/8 x 5 1/4
Acetate window sheet: 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 (needs to be large enough to hide behind the aperture allowing for DSP to adhere to inside of card
Front pop up section: 4 1/8 x 9 1/2 score at 1/2 , 1 1/4 , 2 , 2 3/4 from either side DSP 3 3/4 x 3 7/8
1. Make up the card base with DSP.. Stamp greeting onto basic white and decorate with 1/2 flowers and leaves from the edge of respective DSP sheets.
2. Fold and burnish all the score lines on pop up section (Mountain folds). 3. Cut aperture in centre of front DSP with 3 3/8 circle die and adhere to card section. 4. Cut another aperture through the card with 2 3/8 circle die making sure there is an even border around the die. 5. fix acetate window sheet to back of pop up with DST or Seal 6. Apply glue of choice to the 1/2" tabs on the pop up. fold under one pillar at a time and press down leaving 3/4" section showing . When you release, the pillar should be formed. Repeat with the other side. 7. Adhere one pillar at a time to the card with glue of choice. I used DST plus wet glue. Fold the pillar under and line up the right hand edge of right pillar with the outside edge of card base and also top/bottom. Hold for minute. when you release it should be stuck 3/4" inside card base. Repeat with left hand side. Check that both sides fold both ways to form flat card for posting
8. Decorate front by sticking circle die using tiny dots tombow to circles and gently lay in place centrally withing the card border. 9. Die cut or fussy cut smaller flower plus 3 white lacy leaves. Form arrangement and adhere with Seal or Seal+ 10. Embellish with Loose frosted dots and tiny dots Tombow.
Please don't be put off by the detailed instructions. I often make a trial version out of copy paper first to check my sizes and methods before commiting to cardstock. Then I scribble on sizes and keep for reference for another time!
