Wow! Four Square Pop Out Card with Poppy Moments

Four Square Pop Out Card - 5 (1)

I'm so excited to share this lovely card with you! The fun happens on the inside of the card, but here is a quick view of the front of the card, gorgeous with the Poppy Moments dies and the fun striped pattern from the FREE* Golden Honey Designer Series Paper. No need to add much else, that poppy is a real show stopper!

And the inside of the card – WOW!! So fun! AND super easy too! There is a little trick to getting it to pop out – but it is an easy trick. I have a free PDF tutorial and a video for you today.

You may be wondering where you put the inside message and sign the card. Well, on this card that bit is on the back as you can see in this photo. If you like to write a lot inside the card, you could put the strip of designer series paper up at the top instead (yeah, I pretty much just write "love, Susan" on all my cards!).

In this overhead view you can see how the inside pop out mechanism works, it's a simple accordion fold to make the center piece pop – the trick is how you adhere it inside the card to keep it up and not flat.

The poppy suite gives you endless possibilities for decorating the inside of the card. I love the floral peek through die that comes in the Poppy Moments die collection – it makes a very elegant panel inside the card and the Peaceful Poppies sequins are the perfect embellishment to the center of the flowers.  The Happy Birthday sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set which is bundled with the dies for a 10% savings – yippeee, I love to save!

More of the pretty inside! *The Golden Honey Designer Series Paper on the front of the card is free (while supplies last) with a qualifying order of $50 US before tax and shipping during Sale-a-bration which goes from January 3rd to March 31st, 2020.

The trick to keeping the center up so that it pops out when the card is opened is to line up the edges of the pop up mechanism with the edges of the inside layer pieces, not with the edges of the card base. Watch the video or see the PDF tutorial for clarification!

This fun fold was inspired by Stampin' Up! Jan Brown from the UK. You can see her version here.

  1. Absolutely love this card. The Poppy Paper is just gorgeous – I’d be in trouble if it was fabric – so paper I will take, particularly when I see such beautiful cards such as this one. The fun fold is great and will certainly be using this with other projects. Thanks for making each step easy to follow!
