Stamped Cube Pop Up Card

Christmas Cube Pop Up

Today I’m sharing another great Stamped Cube Pop Up Card with you! For this card, I stamped snowflakes on Whisper White card stock and I also included some snowflakes cut out with the dies.

I started by cutting the Night of Navy card stock for the base at 9″ x 5-1/4″ followed by scoring it @ 2-1/8″, 4-1/4″, 6-3/8″, and 8-1/2″. This would make the tallest cube.

Then I cut another piece of Night of Navy card stock at 9″ x 4-1/4″ and scored it at 2-1/8″, 4-1/4″, 6-3/8″, 8-1/2″. I placed the 4-1/4″ side at the top of the Paper Trimmer so I could cut this piece in half at 2-1/8″. This will now be the 2 shorter cubes.

I folded the Night of Navy card stock on score lines, burnished the folds with a bone folder. It was best to use a strong adhesive like Tear & Tape along the 1/2″ edge of each card stock piece to adhere the edges and make 3 open-ended boxes.

Now that the 3 boxes were ready, it was time to put them together. To do this, I had to keep the seam on all 3 boxes towards the front. Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I attached the 2 smaller boxes to the front of the tall box. I did have to make sure that the small boxes would fold up and the card would fit into a standard envelope.

It can be decorated in a number of different ways. For this card, I decided to stamp on Whisper White card stock with Balmy Blue Classic Ink and die cut snowflakes from Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper. I cut 4 pieces of Balmy Blue card stock @ 2″ x 2″ and 2 pieces @ 2″ x 2-7/8″. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach to the outside sides of boxes.

Snowflake Pop Up Card

To complete the 2 back panels, I cut 1 piece of Whisper White card stock @ 5″ x 2″ as well as 1 piece of Balmy Blue card stock @ 5″ x 2″. Following this, I attached both of them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I also cut 1 piece of Whisper White card stock @ 3-1/2″ x 7/8″ for the greeting and used Night of Navy Classic Ink to stamp a greeting from the Merry Moose stamp set on it.

For the hinges used to attach the greeting, I cut 2 pieces of Night of Navy card stock @ 1-1/4″ x 5/8″. I folded the hinges in 1/2, placed Tear & Tape on one side, and Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the other side. Next, I placed the side with liquid glue on the centerfold of the tall box with the fold along the seam. Once both hinges were in place, I peeled the paper off the Tear & Tape and attached the stamped greeting strip making sure that it will lay flat when the card is closed.

After that I chose a coordinating design from the same package of DSP to cut 4 pieces @ 2″ x 2″ and 2 pieces @ 2″ x 3″. To mount these pieces, I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue and attached them to the inside of boxes. The hinges will now be covered and neatly tucked behind the greeting.

There are so many different patterns in all the amazing packages of Designer Series Paper available from Stampin’ Up! I hope that you’ll try making a few Cube Pop Up Boxes too!

Christmas Cube Pop Up Card

When I saw the pattern for this Cube Pop Up Card, I knew it would be a hit this Christmas season! So let me show you what I decided to create.

I started by cutting the Night of Navy card stock for the base at 9″ x 5-1/4″ followed by scoring it @ 2-1/8″, 4-1/4″, 6-3/8″, and 8-1/2″. This would make the tallest cube.

Then I cut another piece of Night of Navy card stock at 9″ x 4-1/4″ and scored it at 2-1/8″, 4-1/4″, 6-3/8″, 8-1/2″. I placed the 4-1/4″ side at the top of the Paper Trimmer so I could cut this piece in half at 2-1/8″. This will now be the 2 shorter cubes.

I folded the Night of Navy card stock on score lines, burnished the folds with a bone folder. It was best to use some Tear & Tape along the 1/2″ edge of each card stock piece to adhere the edges and make 3 open-ended boxes.

Now that the 3 boxes were ready, it was time to put them together. To do this, I had to keep the seam on all 3 boxes towards the front. Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I attached the 2 smaller boxes to the front of the tall box. I did have to make sure that the small boxes would fold up and the card would fit into a standard envelope. Once I managed to get the first one to work, I found it easy to create more!

It can be decorated in a number of different ways. For this card, I decided to let the Designer Series Paper (DSP) do the work. I cut 4 pieces of Brightly Gleaming DSP @ 2″ x 2″ and 2 pieces of the same design @ 2″ x 2-7/8″. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach DSP to the outside sides of boxes.

To complete the 2 back panels, I cut 2 pieces of Very Vanilla card stock @ 5″ x 2″ and attached them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I also cut 1 piece of Very Vanilla card stock @ 3-1/2″ x 7/8″ for the greeting and used Night of Navy Classic Ink to stamp a greeting from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set on it.

For the hinges used to attach the greeting, I cut 2 pieces of Night of Navy card stock @ 1-1/4″ x 5/8″. I folded the hinges in 1/2, placed Tear & Tape on one side, and Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the other side. Next, I placed the side with liquid glue on the centerfold of the tall box with the fold along the seam. Once both hinges were in place, I peeled the paper off the Tear & Tape and attached the stamped greeting strip making sure that it will lay flat when the card is closed.

Triple Accordion Fold Card

The Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper (DSP) works so well with the triple accordion fold design because there are so many “sides” to display the beautiful coordinating colours.

Here are the products used:

If you want to order, click on the image or the description and you’ll be directed to my online store!

Here are the instructions and dimensions for this card:

  • Cut Just Jade Cardstock at 11″ x 5-1/2″, score at 4-1/4″, 7″ and 9-3/4″, fold like an accordion, burnish with Bone Folder.
  • Forever Greenery DSP:
    • Cut 2 @ 5-1/4″ x 2-1/2″
    • Cut 2 @ 5-1/4″ x 2″
    • These can be the same or different but I suggest that they come from the same package of DSP.
  • Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″. Use Just Jade Classic Ink and Pretty Peacock Classic Ink to stamp desired images along the right-hand side because it will be seen when the card is closed and when it is open.
  • Use Stampin’ Seal to attach the DSP to the 4 areas on the card base.
