A Scor-Pal More Than One Score and a Pop-Up Card Tutorial

Hello Crafty Friends!  I'm back with April's More Than One Score challenge and a tutorial.  April's challenge has a theme of spring and/or flowers.  We have had an early spring this year and it has been abnormally warm and dry.  Many of our flowers and trees are blooming early and inspired my card today.  Today's card is a fun pop-up card*!
 For this project, you will need:

  • Scor-Pal
  • Scor-Tape
  • Scor-Mat
  • 4 1/4" x 11" piece of paper for card base
  • 2 3/4" x 5 1/4" piece of acetate for pop-up tag
  • Craft knife
  • Ruler
  • Flower and word dies, leaf punch
  • Additional card stock for flower and sentiment
  • Liquid and dimensional adhesives
  • Embellishments as desired (ribbon and button)
  • Stamps and ink
Place the 4 1/4" x 11" piece of designer paper in the Scor-Pal with the 11" side of the paper against the top fence.  Score the paper at 1", 2 3/4", 3 3/4", 5 1/2", 7 1/4", 8 1/4" and 10".  

Flip the designer paper over and find the scored line at 5 1/2".  With a ruler and a pencil, mark 5/8" from the top and bottom.  
Insert your Scor-Mat into your Scor-Pal.  With your craft knife, trim away an opening between the two marks on the 5 1/2" score line.
Burnish, or crease, all of the scored lines you made in the first step.  You will see the base of the pop-up card starting to take shape.
Line the first and last 1" segments of the designer paper with Scor-Tape, as shown.
Create your pop-up tag on the 2 3/4" x 5 1/4" piece of acetate.  Card stock would also work for creating the pop-up tag.  Insert the tag through cut out opening from the top of the card base.
Remove the adhesive backing from the Scor-Tape from one of the 1" segments and secure your tag, making certain that your tag is centered in the opening and lined up with the bottom of the card base.  Remove the adhesive backing from the other 1" segment and secure it to the tag and the first 1" segment, creating the bottom of the pop-up card base.
 The pop-up card will now sit upright and you can embellish the card base as desired.
 Also, the pop-up card base folds down flat and will fit nicely into an envelope.
This concludes my Pop-Up card tutorial made especially for the April edition of the Scor-Pal More Than Once Score challenge.  

Happy Scoring!
