Surprise Pop Up Card - Gentleman's Emporium - Couture Creations

Hi Everyone, Anet here today 
and welcome to my inspiration post

I made a Surprise Pop Up Card
with the new release Gentleman's Emporium Collection

Step by step instructions:

1. Trim white cardstock to 15cm and 21cm.
Score and fold card base.

2. Cut Cypress Pine Cardstock to 11.9cm x 15.5cm. 

3. Cut Gentleman's Emporium pattern paper to 10.3cm x 15.9cm
and layer onto cardstock.

4. Line cardstock up at 2cm and cut from 2cm to 12.5cm.

Turn cardstock and cut the opposite side the same way.

Cut between the cuts on one side from 2cm to 8cm.

5. Score at 2cm, 7.5cm and 11cm.
Fold valley and mountain folds.

6. Die-cut Cypress Pine Cardstock with tag die.
It measures 6.5cm x 11.4cm.

Punch a hole, put hemp rope through hole and tie.

7. Cut copy paper to 1.3cm x 17.8cm
and wrap loosely around tag.

Glue ends together.

This loop will keep your slider part stable.

8. Tape stabiliser to the back of the front piece of cardstock.

Add double sided tape onto the left, right and bottom
of the front piece of cardstock.

Add double sided tape also onto the bottom of the flap

Use a circle punch and punch it out.

Line the end of the tag with the end of the flap.

Remove sticky strip of double sided tape and adhere tag onto flap.

10. Cut Gentleman's Emporium pattern paper to 8cm x 12cm.
Adhere onto card front. 

11. Stamp pattern paper with 
Gentleman's Emporium Sentiment Mini Stamp.

Remove rest of double sided sticky strip and adhere onto card front.

12. Die-cut Gentleman's Emporium pattern paper 
with Modern Essentials Nesting Rectangle Die.

Stamp Gentleman's Emporium Crank Start Stamp 
onto pattern paper die-cut.

Distress edges.

13. Cut, Emboss and Ink with 
Gentleman's Emporium You're Invited Tag:

- Ink Cut, Foil and Emboss Die with Brilliance Pigment Ink.

- Place Cut, Foil and Emboss Die onto C-Plate.
