#G45PopUp - Dimensional Floral Shoppe Cards with Tutorial

Posted by Graphic 45 09/17/2018 19 Comment(s) Cards,Tutorials,Videos,

Hello, G45ers!

Welcome to a fantastic week on the Graphic 45 blog!  Today, we are celebrating our #G45PopUp - September Challenge with two 3D cards and a video tutorial by Sandi Nagel.  Sandi has selected our Floral Shoppe collection and Metal Dies to create these elegant and feminine handmade cards.  


Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe Pop Up Cards

By Sandi Nagel


“Hello G45ers!

I have a full step-by-step tutorial on these beautiful Graphic 45 Cards using the Floral Shoppe 8x8 Collection, the Floral Shoppe Chipboard pieces, the flower and leaves dies from the Graphic 45 Large Tag, ATC Tag, and Flower Dies, and the clock die from the Graphic 45 Square Tag and Clock dies. 



I know these may look a bit complex, but don't be intimidated.  We are going to take a step-by-step process, and you too will be able to make these beautiful pop-up cards in no time.


First let me mention the flowers. For the flowers, I used the Graphic 45 flower dies and papers from the Flower Shoppe collection.  I also used a few scrap pieces that were left from a different project (from the Imagine collection).



For the full look, you'll be using five flowers and a handful of flourishes and leaves. For a touch of whimsy, add a coordinating color into the mix.



On the front of both cards, you'll notice that I used a singular Rose from the Graphic 45 Rose Bouquet Collection.


Tip: Do all of your die-cutting first.  This includes your leaves, flourishes and flowers.  Your project will go a lot faster if you have all of your pieces ready for use.



Tip: You'll also want to glue and assemble your clock before you begin building your pop up card.  This way your clock will be ready when it's time to add it as a topper.

Graphic 45 Pop-up Card Supply List:


Some leftover scraps from the Graphic 45 Imagine collection went to making some of the flowers.






Other Supplies:

  • 2 Pieces of 12x12 White Card Stock
  • Scoring Board
  • Paper Trimmer
  • A good pair of paper crafting scissors
  • Artist Glitter Glue (doesn't have glitter it's just named this way)
  • Scor-tape
  • Die-cutting machine
  • Flourishes


Measurements & Cut List:

Four pieces cut at 6 1/2" by 4 1/2"

Hold your pieces horizontally and score at 3"

Hold your pieces vertically and score at 4" (ensure that all pieces are facing in the same direction)

The top portion of your card measures 3" and bottom portion measures 3 1/2"

Hold your pieces with the 3" measurement on top. Cut off the vertical score mark until it meets the horizontal score mark.

From your Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe paper, cut 4 pieces at 3 3/8" by 3 7/8" (these will be glued at the bottom half of your card.)

From your Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe paper, cut four coordinating pieces at 2 7/8" by 3 7/8" (these will be glued at the top half, 3 where the flaps open, and one on the back.)

Cut four strips of white cardstock at 5" by 3/4".  Score both ends of these strips at 1/2".
