Toil and Trouble Pop Up Card

This can be a card or décor. Sometimes it’s called a wiper card. Here it is closed.... 

and the open with the witch hat popping up.

And the how-to (surprisingly easy!)

2 pieces of cardstock  6 ¾ x 4 ¼, score on the long side 5 and 5 ¾

2 x 2 ½ with a score line in 1 corner about 1/2 “ on each side (see photo) this will hold the hat.   You can see I attached the hat and then trimmed around the hat edge. 

Can you see the tiny 1/2" diagonal score line? Make sure you line this up just like the photo so it pops out.

For the front, I used glossy paper (pre-embossed for ease at class) or you can emboss with dots and heat embossing).  3 ¾ x 4 ¼.  You need glossy paper (available in my online store) so you can wipe the ink on the front. 

1. Make the card.  Insert the small piece perpendicular to the front of the card.  Glue this firmly with liquid glue.  See photos below for placement.  The piece should “flap” towards you, down into the card.

2. While the glue dries:  Sponge on 3 colors. Tap the ink pad, tap “off” the color on grid paper and swirl onto the glossy paper and if needed take off the ink with a power towel in a swirling motion.   I used Gorgeous Grape, Real Red and Mango melody. 

3. Stamp and die cut the house. I used the set from Festive Farmhouse (really a Christmas set but great for Halloween as well). 

4.  Now the glue is dry.  Attach the hat, trim the cardstock.  Test to see it all works. Attach the  larger front to the back  pieces. 

5. Decorate the front with the colored piece, the Farmhouse house (black ink on the Grape) and  attach the house and bats with dimensionals.  I used the bat punch and black foil for the bats.  Attach the fence with 2-3 glue dots.  My fence is “floating” as the house has dimensions.  You could put a white piece on the back with a greeting.

I hope you make one!  Happy stamping, MaryKate
