Easy Pull Up Card

Hello everyone, I hope you had a lovely weekend and managed to squeeze in some crafting.

I had fun creating these rather spectacular Pull Up Cards.

Amazing Pull Up Cards

I first saw this style posted by a lovely talented lady called Lesley on a FB group, she then directed us to JK Arts where I found their tutorial. As always if I CASE someone else’s design I like to change it a little and add my style to it.

For this one, I used the First Edition Wanderlust paper, I love the gold foil design on this one.

For my next one, I used the wonderful Trimcraft V&A papers and Hobbybase Butterfly die.

To make this card you will need…

4 pieces of 2″ x 12″ cardstock for your concertina strips.

Score along the 12″ side at 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″ & 10″

20 pieces of  1.3/4 x 1.3/4 plain card to mat.

16 – 20 pieces of 1.1/2 x 1.1/2 of pattern paper to layer on top.

1 piece of 6.1/4 x 6.1/4 cardstock for your base.

1 piece of 6 x 6 pattern paper to layer on top of your base.

2 pieces of 7/8 x 3.1/4 strips to hold your card together.

Some small circle die cuts to finish off the top where your ribbon will go.

Approximately 12″ of ribbon.

For the envelope, you will need a sheet of 9.3/4 x 9.3/4 scoring at 4.7/8 on your Envelop Punch Board.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made them.


There are so many wonderful ways to decorate these and as I mention in the video they would look great with something hanging inside.

Spectacular, Easy Pull Up Cards

The more unusual the card the better I say, and I thoroughly enjoyed making these.

I hope you have a go at making these and as always please share them over on my Mixed Up Craft Facebook page.

Happy Crafting.

  9. adorable card!
    great instruction as well.
    one thought i had… it might be easier to put the ribbon through the holes before you put the x on to the accordion strips. that way you can easily glue the underpart w a glue gun if needed. once assembled, to glue it on to the strips.
    i’m certainly going to make this card! has wow factor! thanks for sharing!
