Fold Back Pop-Up Cards | Cardmaking with Nan!

Hi everyone, so, many of you will know that I had my wonderful Nan visit last week, like many, it was the first time seeing her in almost a year so it was lovely to be able to give her a big hug and a kiss. We had a lovely time together and catching up and of course we squeezed in some crafting.

I wanted a card that would be easy for Nan to follow, but also have the wow factor so this Fold Back Pop-Up Card style was the perfect fit.

I saw the style on Pinterest and thought it was lovely, I’ve changed it up a little and made it a 5 x 7 version.

Nan loved the sentiment and the doily so we added the topper in the centre of the diamond shapes, however there are many styles with just the diamond shapes showing and they look wonderful.

The card folds flat to fit in an envelope, however if you do add any dimension you can pop it into one of my box envelopes here.

You can write your message inside your card or on the back as we have.


Paper Boutique Ocean Breeze paper pad and topper pad available here.


In the video I say 1 piece of 10′ x 5′ but you need I piece of 10′ x 7′ as its for a 5′ x 7′ card. Apologies for anyone who cut their card wrong.

Score the 10′ x 7′ piece along the 10′ side at 2.1/2 & 5′

1 piece of 4.3/4 x 6.3/4 pattern paper to decorate the inside large panel.

2 pieces of 2.1/4 x 6.3/4 pattern paper to decorate the smaller panels.

2 pieces of 2.1/4 x 2.1/4 card and 2 pieces of 2′ x 2′ pattern paper for the square detail.

1 piece of 4.1/2 x 4.1/2 card and 1 piece of 4.1/4 x 4.1/4 pattern paper for the large triangular pop-up detail inside the card.

A 3.1/4 diameter circle for the topper.
