Hand Stamped By Heather Wright-Porto: "Pretty" Pop-Up Card

"Pretty" Pop-Up Card

This fold is called the Spring Card since it pops up like a spring board. I downloaded the technique from Split Coast Stampers:(http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ee/index.php/resources/tutorials/spring_card/).

I love this card. It was relatively simple (with the exception of the flower dying). I really like Stampin' Up!'s Pretties Kit (the flowers and hat pins from that kit were used there).

  • Rub-ons
  • Mini Glue Dots
  • SNAIL Adhesive
  • Chocolate Chip re-inker
  • Pretty in Pink re-inker
  • Chocolate Chip Taffeta Ribbon


  • You can find the Spring fold instructions here at Split Coast Stampers: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ee/index.php/resources/tutorials/spring_card/

  • As for dying the flowers, I used Chocolate Chip and Pretty in Pink refills (re-inkers). I dyed the small flower in all chocolate and the larger flower I added pink to the edges.

  • Once the flowers are dry, I adhered the pearl to the center of the large flower and the white center back in the center of the small flower.

  • I added hat pin gems to the top, punched thru the paper, added more to the bottom and then closed the hat pin. I used a Mini Glue Dot under the hat pin to hold it in place.

  • Lastly, this card has no stamping! I simply used rub-ons for the greeting.
