Any Shape Layered Spring Cards

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing a fun pop-Up card idea using any shape nesting dies.

If you’re a cardmaker who enjoys die-cutting the chances are you own some nesting dies.

I added little DIY springs between each layer to allow the card to Pop-Up when displayed.

No measuring is needed, any shape and size can be made and they are quick to make too!

I used my star dies to make a Christmas card and a Congratulations card.

You have lots of space on the back to stamp and write your message!


Creative Craft Products Nesting dies are available here.

The Star nesting dies I used are available here.  They may be in the older packaging.

North Star 8 x 8 paper pad, check eBay, and any independent craft stores.

I can’t find the cardstock I used, but it’s a very pale blue/gray colour.

I will link the sentiment stamp set when it becomes available.

Measurements needed for the springs and stand/stopper

For each spring you will need a piece of 2.1/2 x 1′ card.

Score along the 2.1/2 side at 1/2′, 3/4′, 1′, 1.1/2, 1.3/4 & 2′

1 piece of 2′ x 1′ card for the stand/stopper.

Score along the 2′ side at 1/2′, 1′ & 1.1/2

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

Happy crafting
