VIDEO: Quarter Fold Pop-Up Card Tutorial

I couldn't wait to CASE this fun fold card as soon as I saw it! I was inspired by cards by Libby Fens, but have seen several other versions too. I always like to include a fun fold card in my Stamp of the Month Club card kits, so I made this one for last month's Timeless Tropical kit.

The card folds flat to fit in a regular envelope and then folds out to stand up on it's own like a mini diorama. Here's a view from the top that shows the different dimensions.

Watch the replay of my Facebook Live to learn how to make this card. I've set the video to start around 32:00, when I start the demo for this card.

This card is pretty easy to assemble! Here are the Quarter Fold Pop-Up Card Measurements:
  • 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Crumb Cake Cardstock, scored at 2-3/4"
  • 2-1/4" x 4-1/2" Crumb Cake Cardstock, scored at 1/2", 2-1/4", and 4"
  • 1-1/4" x 6-1/2" Soft Suede Cardstock, scored at 1/2" and 6"
  • Apply Tear & Tape Adhesive to both ends of the smaller Crumb Cake cardstock. Fold the tabs back and adhere them to the bottom of the larger Crumb Cake Cardstock, center the fold line of the smaller piece above the fold line of the larger piece. (When open, the folds go in opposite directions.)
  • Emboss the Soft Suede cardstock with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder. Fold the scored ends back. Apply Tear & Tape to both ends and adhere to the sides of the large Crumb Cake cardstock so the bottom edges line up.
  • Stamp & die cut the flowers and leaves. Attach them to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Great card and video... thanks, Julie! One small comment... I think the measurements you listed for the soft suede piece should be 6 1/2 instead of 5 1/2. I followed the video measurements and they were correct.
