Slim Line Pop-Up Cards

Hi friends, I want to start making a lot more Slim Line cards this year and started with this beautiful pop-up version.

I had purchased the Piano die last year and had been meaning to use it, then I had an idea to do a Slim Line Pop-Up Card and thought the piano die would work perfectly in this shaped card.

I pulled out my Papercraft Society Box 14 for all the floral detail and the Papercraft Society Box 9 for the sentiment.

For the front of the card, I used the other die that comes with the piano to continue that music theme.

You can write inside the card if you like, however, I tend to write on the back so that all the lovely design can be displayed and enjoyed.


Piano Die available here.

Papercraft Society Box 14 available here.

Box 9 has been sold out for a while as it’s an older kit.


You can make the slim card as tall and wide as you like, mine is 8.1/4 x 8.1/4 card scored at 4.1/8 as I used A4 card size. If you have letter paper size, I would cut it to 8.1/2 x 8.1/2 and score at 4.1/4

1 piece of 3″ x 1.1/2 card for the pop-up piece.

Score along the 3″ side at 1″, 1.1/2 & 2.1/2

2 pieces of 7.7/8 x 3.7/8 and 2 pieces of 7.5/8 x 3.5/8 to mat and layer the front and back of the card.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made it

Happy crafting
