POP-UP CARD INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: Cut 2 pieces of cardstock to the same size (I used black cardstock and cut it to 6in. x 8in.)

Step 2: Score cardstock pieces in half to create side-fold cards

Step 3: Take one piece of cardstock and sprinkle with an array of Cosmic Shimmer Shakers to create a colourful background and spray with water* to activate the powders.

*Spray water at a low, side angle to create radiating colour effects

Step 4: Dry water with a heat tool or let air dry. Blot any excess water with a tissue or cloth.

Step 5: Trim your galaxy cardstock with a paper trimmer creating 3 slits of various sizes. (I used 1in, 2 in, and 2.5 in slits)

Step 6: Score vertical lines at the end points of your slits.

Step 7: Glue your pop up cardstock to your card base with some strong double sided adhesive. Make sure you don’t put any adhesive over the scored pop up lines or slits.

Step 8: Decorate your pop up card with your die-cut shapes and sentiments!
