Using your preferred color scheme, cut out all the parts to the card you selected. It is so much easier to cut everything all at once than one by one. I labeled the colors for you below.
Start off by gluing the solid heart and the heart frame together with wet glue.
Next, adhere your monster pieces together on top of one another, in the order as pictured. Also, adhere the hot pink horns behind the monster base. Next, apply dimensional foam dots to the arms of the monster as well as the heart. Lay both of those on your card base.
Adhere the “word” monster together. The pink piece goes on top and the gold hearts show through.
These slit pieces are how your card will all come together. You will need to fold them at that first slot. Now it’s time to put the card together. Starting with the solid heart and frame background piece we put together first, connect the pieces together using the slits provided. It should look like this from overhead.
Once you have that base piece attached, flip over to the backside and apply hot glue to both of the tabs and adhere to the tabs to the base.
Following in the order as pictured, slip each separate layer into its slit and glue like above. From overhead your card should look like this.
Now, you’re done! Wasn’t that easy?? Your pop-up card will fold flat for mailing. This one was so fun to make that I made another design using the same process.
Here are the cards standing for display. I ended up adding two small flat back gold pearls to the flower center for a little pizzazz. They turned out so cute!!
What a fun way to send something extra special in this year’s happy craft mail! This is also fun for teachers and children alike!
