Hello from a snow clad part of the world ...
Its all snow outside my window , haven't seen sunshine for days except today !
So i thought of sharing a pop up card i recently made for valentines day.
I love the Sizzix Pop 'n Cuts Dies
They make pop up cards so easy ! :)
Here is what i made with it
The die i have used here is
The die originally cuts a longer card , but i reduced the size to fit my requirement.
That's the beauty of these magnetic dies , you get to position your pop up mechanism
anywhere you like ! its just great!
They have a coordinating label for the insides in the Sizzix Sizzlits Die Set 3PK - Love Set
The label is what i have used outside instead on the inside.
i have used the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 8PK - Circles instead on the inside , with
The birds are cut with Sizzix Sizzlits Die Set 3PK - Card Phrases Set #2
I made this flower with 657751-sizzix-sizzlits-die-set-3pk-decorative-vintage-set
The die is absolutely great! love the outcome
I curled the petals inwards to give the flower a dimensional look.
Now here is a little idea about the Pop n' cuts die .
You will need your extended cutting pads with this die.
So if u buy a XL die be it pop n cuts or any other XL die from sizzix make sure
you also buy a pair of extended cutting pads.
Ok so first you need to align the pop up die inside your trey
how do u do that ?
Well this is something your die looks like with the base
Make sure you position your pop up die on the score marking given on the die.
I hope u can see the lines aligned together.
Then you just keep your card-stock and sandwich it with your cutting pads and run it though your machines.
So thats the original and full size of your cut card.
That's how the cuts come , Now we have to fold it.
The trick is to do a vally fold then a mountain fold.
make sure u hold the pop up correctly before folding as shown below.
The larger two cut lines on the top when you hold the card facing u .
Hope it was informative
Along with that i think this video will clear up a lot of things :)
Happy cutting !!
