A2 Pop Up Cat Tree Card with Kathy

Hi Everyone!  It’s Kathy today with a quick assembly tutorial for the A2 Pop Up Cat Tree Card!  (available here in the Silhouette Store) This card is adorable, and really easy to put together.  This tutorial should also help you with the other Pop Up cards in Lori’s Shop, as the mechanics are basically the same!  Take a peek at my card…

I love the dimension of the pop up cards, it reminds me of those fun pop up books I had when I was little!  They really are pretty easy to assemble…

First, cut all of your pieces.  I like to line them up to make sure I have everything!

Next, I folded the card bases along the score lines.  Hint:  to best fold the pop up piece, start with the pop up strips before you fold the card in half.  This will eliminate any unintentional creases.

I then added the sky and grass pieces.

The next step is to adhere the pop up piece to the card base.  Make sure you do not add adhesive under the strips.  You want these to pop up.  The easiest way to get things centered is to first align the center creases of each layer, then smooth everything down.

It’s now time to add the decorative elements.  You want to make sure you only add adhesive to the lower section of the pop up strip.

When adding the cat and the tree,  make sure to align the bottom edge of each element with the bottom crease of the pop up strips.

The only things left are to add the clouds and stamp your sentiment!  That’s it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!  And don’t forget, all designs in Lori’s SVG Shop are 30% off this week!  Use code MAR2016 to get the discount.  It’s the perfect time to get those items on your wish list!

Hi Melissa,
The papers are all from Doodlebug Design. The grass paper is from the new Spring Garden collection, the others are Swiss Dot Petite Prints. They are not digital.

Like the 3D look of the style of card. Wonderful patterned papers used & showing of the steps. Especially like the grass paper used. Would like to know what papers used? Are the papers digi made or not? Have a BEE-utiful day!
