Step by Step Instructions

1 Score and fold the light green A4 sheet in half, then place the largest curved rectangle die onto the card die cut side down. Leave the folded edge clear on the left hand and secure with low tack tape. This will give you a double width card once it has been put through your die cutting machine.


2 Emboss the edge of the card by placing the card back into the die and run the embossing tool around the edge. Repeat this on the other section of the card.


3 Open the card out and score on the A5 gate no. 3 score line and then turn the card around repeat on the other panel to provide all the scoring for the pop out card.


Fold the card back in half and place the largest oval die cut side down and secure down with low tack tape. Make sure that exactly half the die is covering the card so you get a perfect circle when the card is open.


Turn the die and card over and place on the magnetic spacer mat. Cut the card through your die cutting machine.


The pop out card will look like this once the oval is cut. This technique can be used with other symmetrical die shapes, just don`t cut over the 2 embossed lines.


Take the darker green card and score at the DL no. 5 mark to make the base shape of the card. Do the same with the white 160gsm paper and trim 5mm off each edge to make the correct size for the insert.


Stamp In the top right hand corner of the white paper with the large butterfly flourish using the peeled paint ink pad. Now stamp the medium flower with the shabby shutters ink.


With a piece of scrap paper under the insert run the gold pen around the edge to give a neat finish to the insert.

10 Place a strip of double sided tape on the outside of the DL section of the insert and place in the card so you have an even border all around. Close the card shut to secure the insert in place. When the card is opened the insert will open with it too.


11 Place double sided tape on the 2 reverse outer edges of the pop out card.


12 Concertina the pop out section up and remove the tape from one side of the panel and place an inch in from the fold of the inset. Set the card a side till the butterflies have been made.


13 Swipe the heat resistant acetate with the anti static bag and stamp the butterflies and flowers with the archival ink and emboss with the clear embossing powder.  


14 Cut around the acetate so you just have the images and little acetate showing. Place the images onto the double sided tac sheet.


15 Remove the layer of backing paper on the tac sheet and lay the variegated blue leaf over the sheet.


16 Try and keep the leaf flat to gain a nice pattern to the leafing.


17 Cut out all the pieces. Be careful not to remove the embossed line when cutting as this is prone to happen on acetate.


18 Place a small piece of wonder tape on the body of one of the butterflies and lay a black thread down the centre. Then place another piece of wonder tape over the top and attach the other butterfly on the reverse.


19 Open the pop out card so you attach the thread to the top and bottom of the card with tape.


20 Fold the card back up and remove the tape and close the card shut to secure the pop out in the correct place.


21 Once open you will have a dimensional turning butterfly. Stamp and emboss a gold butterfly on the edge of the pop out.


22 Slip a length of ribbon under the insert and tie into a bow on the front of the card.


23  Mat a small panel of light card onto the mirri card and place onto the front of the card using foam pads. Attach 3 of the gold flowers to the panel and draw in 3 stems to add to the design.


24 Add small drops of stickles to the centre of the flowers or use micro beads.


25 Here is the completed project with the added pop out feature inside.
