NEW RELEASE! Heart Pop Up Card by Sara Cook

Having fun with the new Valentine's releases. I have a project today inspired by my daughter wanting a surprise on the inside of the card.  It is a pop up card featuring the new Crystal Heart die.  


Pop Up Heart:

Take 140lb Open Studio watercolor paper.  Spray with water then lightly with ink sprays.  I used pink and purple Dylusions spray by Ranger.  Let dry and then die cut a heart using the 2nd largest of the Double Stitched Loving Heart Cut Out. Cut out the Crystal Heart die out of a darker color paper that matches the background heart.  Glue together.  Add some Drewdrop Fairy Sugar glitter glue to some of the open areas and then Glossy Accents to other areas, leaving some areas blank.


Die cut the Big Hugs Scrip foreground die out of the sprayed watercolor paper and the background out of the same dark purple paper used for the Crystal Heart outline.  Glue together.


Die cut a lighter color purple paper using the Pinpoint Burst Plate.  Die cut a circle opening using the 24x24 Stitched Circle Layer die centering it over the burst. Save the cut out circle. Die cut a frame using the 28x28 and 24x24 Stitched Circle Layer dies out of the same dark purple paper.  Take a A2 size card base and temporary tape the Pinpoint Burst base on the outside.  To cut out the circle add temporary tape on back of the saved circle cut out and put back in the center.  Remove the Pinpoint Burst panel., leaving the circle die cut.  Line up the 24x24 circle die over the cut out circle.  Unfold the card so only the front panel will be cut through and die cut. Glue the Pinpoint Burst panel back on the front along with the frame and sentiment.

Inside Sentiment:

Use the "Sending" stamp from the Big and Little Words and "all my love" from the Big and Little Valentines to stamp the inside sentiment.  I used Monarch VersaFine Clair ink.


Cut out a strip of paper 1/2"x31/2".  At one end score at 1/2" and add glue to just the 1/2"score . Place the strip of paper w/glue side up on inside of the card half way down from the opening and close the card until glue dries.  Glue the Crystal Heart on the strip centering it in the circle frame.  Trim off any excess paper on the right side of the heart.  Cut another strip of paper 1/2"x2 1/2". Score every 1/2".   Fold on all score marks.  Glue one end on top of the other forming a box. Add glue to 1 side of the box and place behind the heart. Fold down the box and on the opposite side (from the side glued to the heart) add glue and fold card closed to glue to back of card.  Cut random heart sizes from the sprayed watercolor paper using the Sprinkle Heart Collage.  Glue around the inside for more love.
