Pop-Up Flower Pot Mother’s Day Card
I wanted to get in one more Mother’s Day card before the day arrives so here’s a pop-up card for that special mom in your life. This card was designed in Cricut Design Space using all free and Access images.
This one is going to be a bit hard to explain so I may end up doing a video of putting together the base layers at least. The foundation of the card are the 2 pieces that have the score lines, the inside piece is the one that has the pop-up cut which you need to fold to create a ‘step’. Adhere these two layers together making sure that you don’t glue the ‘step’ to the base, you want it to pop out. I also included 4 panels that you can use if you wish, in my photo I used the foiled wood cardstock for the panels. I used a piece of stiff acetate to build my floral arrangement ‘in’ the pot but you can also cut a piece of cardstock or just build off of each flower, if you opt for acetate or cardstock you’ll want to cut it in a sort of hot air balloon shape so that the bottom will be hidden behind the pot and the top will round out to attach the flowers to. Assemble your pot using the scalloped piece, the trapezoid, and the small rectangle and then adhere it to the front of the ‘step’ …. if using acetate or cardstock to build on you’ll want to adhere that first and then the pot on top of that. Next you’ll add the centers to all of your flowers and then make your arrangement making sure to close your card every now and then to check that you aren’t getting flowers too far up that they show when the card is closed. now just finish it off with the remaining embellishments.
This project is only available as a Cricut Design Space file. You can grab the file from here.
