Really enjoying creating popup cards with Make the Cut’s PopUp Card Studio this past week. Last week I made a gorgeous popup diamond ring card. This week I made the card but also included a backing for the inside of the card to hide all the cuts out that can be seen to make the popup “pop”.

I did up a card using my Lily of the Valley cutting file for inspiration (  original more detailed Lily of the Valley cutting file ) and it is BEYOND cute!

I used good ‘ole Doublemates paper, my go to cardstock for all my cards. I love the colours, the weight of the cardstock, the slight linen texture plus and I can get some interesting variations from cutting one sheet of paper because they are doublesided with coordinating solid colours.

I cut the card using my trusty KNK. If you really wanted you could use one sheet of cardstock for both card and mat ( if usng double sided paper)
I had hard time finding paper to use that I liked from my paper stash ( which is RIDICULOUS if you saw how much I had) . I am committed to using up big chunks of old paper ( never touched!!) before buying any new.

I ended up using “Green Paisley” from Bazzill Basics Paper Divinely Sweet Double Sided Paper ( see photo below).


I glued on little flower cut from white cardstock. I did not have time to glitter- as I believe everything is better with glitter- an oversite on my part. I have hard time with tiny things to glue. I have both

I have hard time with tiny things to glue. I have both Sakura 38480 Quickie Glue Pen Pouch and Zig Squeeze and Roll and really don’t like the Zig. I find it clogs up and dries out easliy. The Quickie is bit more forgiving and easier to use (IMHO). If some one else has a suggestion for gluing small stuff-please – jump in!!! ( I am not a huge Xyron fan either).

This card is very easy to put together. Cut out main card, cut mat, then flowers on white cardstock and voila.
Super easy and looks very intricate and difficult when finished :-)

Hope you enjoy!

As always- let me hear some of your suggestions and send me finished pics or tweet out with #QuillingPatch. Make my day!

New Pop up Card! Gorgeous Popup “Ring” Card

Download Diamond Ring Popup Card Cutting File

I am really excited to offer this card- I think it is one of the NICEST I have done this year!
It is a card that features a “diamond” ring that pops out when you open. It would make great card for engagement party and wedding shower invites, birthday card and I’m sure more!

Something different- I am offering up in pdf format as well- so those who don’t have a cutting machine can also try. Here’s how:

I LOVE pop up cards- I think the symmetry and math involved is appealing. Normally a card like this would take me hours to design. I finally spent the day learning the ins and outs of software that makes it easy to create pop-up cards. Popup Card Studio (from same company as Make the Cut!.
To be honest- it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. If there is interest I will happily post a short video on how to make the card from an SVG. The interface is familiar if you use Make the Cut.

I designed the file using PopUp Card Studio, then imported into MTC to convert to SVG.. I always use MTC to cut my projects. Anything else seems to fail most of the time.
Was a HUGE pain to convert from SVG to GSD. I would love to know of a simple way if someone can share!
My method to convert an SVG file to GSD is below.

My method of converting an SVG/EPS/AI file to GSD format is below.

I have an ai/eps image open in Illustrator
and then export to a DXF file then load into old version of Robomaster and save as SVG from there.

I used up some double-sided cardstock from my bulk Doublemates purchase  that I still have – I used my long time fave, DoubleMates Racy Raspberry  )

You can’t see in pic, but I cut a rectangle slightly smaller than card from pretty double sided paper to put on front, and this peeked thru on inside and give it border on outside.
The little gem is adorable- I am trying not to indulge my glitter obsession- I want to make a ruby and sapphire one from my glitter collection SOOOOOO bad!!!

Very simple to put together. I cut using my KNK Zing.

You can download zip file that contains cutting files and vectorized pdf below.
If you are going to try and make this card by hand and without an electronic digital cutting machine, download the zip file below and use pdf template. Print on cardstock using a very light coloured ink. Cut RED lines and fold BLUE ones.

Download 6 Beautiful Flower SVG’s GSD’s for Scrapbooking and Cards

People often ask me what my favourite cutting files are. To be honest, it changes from season to season and often times the files are my favourites because they remind me of a time in my life and nothing what so ever about the design itself. Sometimes like these ones- they are just really really pretty.

Here are a handful of flower cutting files that I have designed over the years. I was a floral designer for a number for years specializing in weddings and my love of floral design was firmly rooted in my passion for colour. I think that is why I am so drawn to paper crafts and web design- the use of colour really feeds my soul.
