To make this popout A5 card you need to Print the following.
I printed everything onto light printable card 160gsm
3 Borderless A4 Landscape sheets of backing papers in coordinating designs
(A tutorial for borderless printing is available on the Crafters Companion web site, even if you cannot do borderless printing it will show you how to reduce the white edges. You will need to trim off any white edges and adjust the size of your card accordingly) Borderless Tutorial
1 sheet of Card Companions
1 sheet of Sentiments
2 sheets of Borders
1 sheet of Tags
1 sheet of Ribbons
1 A5 insert with verse
I also used
Lace and Ribbon for trimming tag.
Using the A4 card you want for the outside score for a A5 card and fold in half .
Do the same with the card you have chosen for the inside of the apeture. Score on the wrong side.
Now take the card that you have chosen for the pop out.
Score on the front for a A5 card as before.
Then on the reverse side score both sides for a gatefold card.
Fold so that yours looks like the ones below.
Depending on what shape you have chosen for your Card Companion you need to cut an apeture from the pop out sheet. I used a Diesire die laid halfway across the fold.
The apeture needs to be slightly bigger than the topper.
There are several apeture shapes on the Ultimate Pro which you can use.
Cut out the apeture carefully keeping the piece whole as you are going to need it later.
Assembling the card
Lay the open card base front side down on to your mat.
Take your apeture lining card which you scored in half.
Stick the lefthand side onto the base card with a wet glue, I used collal all purpose as you need to be able to move the card to get a perfect fit.
Once this dries it strengthens your card.
DO NOT STICK THE RIGHT HAND SIDE DOWN.
You are now ready to attach the apeture piece.
Open the card so that the lining paper is facing up.
Stick the two outside sections, making sure you match the edges.
Again I use wet glue so that I can move the card around but it is important that you remember only glue the outside panels and do them one at a time.
Fold the insert in half and then try for size in the back section of the card. Trim if necessary. Stick in place.
On the plain side Stick the aperture you cut out and put one of the small toppers on, add a bow if you wish.
Making the hanging decoration.
Take the large topper and mat onto Coordinations or as I did cut a smaller shape using a die and stick this on the back of the topper.
Cut a piece of ribbon to suspend the decoration on and stick it to the back using the small topper.
Suspend the decoration from the centre bend in the card.
Decorate the inside panels as required with, borders, ribbons, sentiments etc
Now complete the front of the card.
I cut the circle mats from the square design, then folded over top.
I stuck this to the bottom corner to form a pocket, so make sure you only put glue near the curved edges.
Mat the tag and any sentiments that you want to use onto Coordinations card.
Trim around them with decorative scissors. Position as required.
Decorate the tag with ribbon and lace, I added stickles glitter to the tag and large topper.
Trim with embellishments. Your card is now complete.
I hope you enjoy making this card, it's one of my favourite designs.
