What better way to celebrate the first signs of spring than with Sharon Nettleship’s statement pop-up greeting using the Silhouette Cameo 4? Easy to post, this interactive design would make for a lovely surprise to send to someone special – it’ll certainly make them smile as they open the card. Simply cut out the required elements and assemble… job’s a good’un! Want to customise it? Tailor the colour scheme by cutting the floral layers from your chosen cardstock.

Pop-up Flower Card

Silhouette Cameo 4
Digital images: Lori Whitlock 5×7 Pop Up Flower Card #326447
Cardstock, various colours
Adhesives: glue, double-sided tape

1. Add the required digital images onto the design page on your Silhouette Cameo 4. Group the same file colours together and bring each group into the cutting space. Fold a yellow blank in half, then cut out all of the pieces.

2. Take the two main flowers and leave the rest to one side. Valley fold along the dotted lines, then bring the open sides together and glue. Alternatively, just press together if you’re using the Silhouette adhesive card. Fold the lines again and bring the two sides together. Fold into a circle, then glue to secure. Gently bend the petals backwards.

3. Take the biggest flower, fold in half and adhere the tab to one side of the blank in the centre using double-sided tape. Secure the tape to the other tab and close the greeting to create the first pop-up layer. Repeat with the remaining three flowers.

4. Close and open your card to make sure everything has stuck well. Arrange extra leaves and smaller flowers around the centrepiece. Cut out the two card front panels from yellow and white. Tuck the background panel into the decorative corners, then glue to the front of the greeting to finish.
