Newton's Nook Designs August Release | Knight's Quest

Hello friends and welcome! Thanks for stopping by for Day 3 of Newton's Nook Designs August Release!

Always Be Brave Pop Up Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Newton's Nook Designs Knight's Quest Stamp Set

Today the design team is featuring the brand new Knight's Quest stamp and coordinating die set. I used this new set to create a fun pop card and I have a step by step tutorial below to show you to do one yourself.

Hill Landscape Pop Up Card Tutorial


At first glance, this card might seem a little simple, however once you open the card the fun begins!I used the Sky and Land Border Dies to create the scene on the front of the card. I then used these same dies to create the pop up scene on the inside.

To create your own pop up scene, begin with a piece of green cardstock cut to 4.25 x 5.5 inches. Cut this in half using the hill die.

Take one of the die cut pieces and offset it with the first piece so that you have two hills.

Trim off the excess piece on the left side of the second piece to create the hill in the background. Don't throw away that scrap. You are going to use it in a few!

Score the first hill piece at 1 inch.

After scoring the second hill, trim off 1/2 inch from the bottom.

Take that scrap that I told you not to throw away from the second hill and trim it into (3) 1/2 inch strips. Cut one strip to 2 inches long. Cut the other two strips to 1.5 inches.

Score the 2 inch strip at 1/2 inch and 1.5 inches.

Score the 1.5 inch strips at 1/2 and 1 inch.

Place the piece inside a folded card base. Apply adhesive along the bottom fold on the first hill and adhere this to the card base. Make sure it is pushed all the way into the fold of the card.

When you open the card, your hill landscape pop up is complete. Now it's time to decorate it with your favorite critters or people to build your scene!

If you want to stamp a sentiment on the hill, make sure to do that before you attach it to the inside of your card. Don't ask who, but I might know someone who didn't do that the first time and it is much easier to do the stamping first!
