I recently shot a video for the Surprise Pop-Up Card tutorial and created this card as a sample. I used the darling Gertie from Stamping Bella’s Lulu Collection.


The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Real Red Cardstock folded in half. Two 3 3/4″ wide pieces of October Afternoon Paper (The Thrift Store and Report Card) were stitched to a 3 15/16″ x 5 3/16″ piece of Basic Black cardstock. After cutting the slider part, a strip of basic black cardstock was cut and embossed with Eyelet Borderabilities. The strip was cut into pieces that fit just over the slider parts and adhered. The strip that was adhered to the middle part only had adhesive on the part under the score line.

Gertie was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored with Copic Markers(R27, R20, BG72, BG75, BG78, E50, E51). It was cut out with Petite Oval Nestabilities. With the die  still on the cardstock, the oval was airbrushed with Copic Marker BG10.

Strawberry Hydrangea Prima Flowers were topped with a White Recollections Brad and adhered to the lower right corner of the slider with dimensionals.


When you pull up the slider, you find the sentiment of the card. It’s from the Flourishes set Humming Along. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.


The inside of the card is decorated with The Thrift Store paper and another Hydrangea flower.

Here is a video for the visual learner:
