Step 1
Fold the cardstock for the inside of the card
in half.
Place the cardstock with the mountain side of
the score line facing up on the paper cutter
and cut two parallel lines over the score line
with the paper cutter.
Use an Xacto knife¯ and ruler instead of the
paper cutter.
Here, the lines were cut 1" from the left-hand
side of the cardstock. The cuts are 2 1/4" long
and 3/8" apart.
The longer the cuts, the further into the card
the pop up element will be.
The wider apart the strips are from each other,
the thicker the pop up strip will be.
Step 2
Use a scoring tool to create a score line
between the cuts.
