Masculine Card using Graphic 45 Ocean Blue with Hidden Pop-up
Step 1: Cut and score according to guide and set pieces aside. Burnish score marks. This card has a little bit of bulk which is why a 1/4″ gusset was incorporated.
Step 2: Use adhesive to attach closure to inside back of card base at center side. Add a magnet on the inside before adhering closure mats. Use magnet on closure to help with proper magnet positioning on front of card base.
Step 3: Use adhesive to adhere front/inside mats (colored cardstock (CCS)and pattern paper (PP)).
Step 4: Fold and burnish pop-up (6″ x 6″). Fold forward on both 3″ score lines and then fold in the opposite direction on the corner to corner score line. See photos below for photo by photo steps.
Step 5: With the inside of the card base up (long way), glue the pop-up base in closed folded state to matted inside of card panel near closest score line. Add glue to exposed side of pop-up box and close card base. Be mindful that 1/4″ gusset is straight. Let glue dry. Test pop-up.
Step 6: Adhere mats to pop-up base. Two mats will need to be cut on the diagonal.
Step 7: Adhere mats to hidden pop-up (bottom has no mat). Burnish pop-up mechanism (1/2″ x 4″). Put glue on 1″ area ONLY on the right. Place inside hidden pop-up. Put glue on 1″ area ONLY on the LEFT. Close hidden pop-up. Repeat. Let glue dry. Glue hidden pop-ups to pop-up areas.
Step 8: Add velcro dots to hidden pop-ups. Glue mechanism mat to top ledge.
Step 9: Embellish to personal preference.
Note: A quarter inch gusset was added due to bulk of card. Pictures show card with and without gusset for comparison. Additional gusset means card will not lay completely flat when opened.
