Rockin' Fifties Stand & Pop Card

Happy Monday crafters!

Kris here sharing with you today.  I tried a new-to-me card fold called a Stand & Pop Card!  It has a kind of "kick stand" on the back that helps it to stand, and the front has a pop out feature.  I've used the  Fifties Jukebox, Guitar, Music Notes & Records, and Fifties Phrases #1 from the Classic Fifties Release (all of which are 40% OFF right now!) along with some cute stamped images.  

Below is my photo tutorial with written instructions, however, if you'd like to watch a video on this style of card fold, you can watch that here.

• Cut a 9" x 4-1/2" - score at 1" (mountain fold) and 3" (valley fold) 
• Cut a 7" x 4-1/2"
• Cut a 6-1/4" x 3" - score at 1/4", 1-1/4", and 5-1/4" - fold & burnish
Cut a 5" x 2"
• Cut a 3" x 1" - score at 1/2" and 2-1/2" - fold & burnish

Cut a 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" (layer for pop out piece)
Cut a 4-1/4" x 6-7/8" - score in half at 2-1/8" (for back)
Cut a 1-3/4" x 6-5/8" (for back)

Cut a 4-1/4 x 5-3/4"
Cut a 1-3/4" x 4-1/4"
Cut a 1-3/4" x 4-3/4"
Cut a 1-1/2" x 6-3/8" (for back)

Cut black/white checkered paper at 4" x 5-1/2"
Cut a patterned paper at 1-1/2" x 4"
Cut a patterned paper (or holographic cs) at 1-1/2 x 4-1/2"


1.  Lay your two biggest red pieces as shown below. 

2.  Add glue/tape to the top 6" portion of  your 9" piece, then adhere your 7" x 4-1/4" piece on top so that the top is flush with the top of your 9" piece.  *NOTE:  You will have a 1" overhang at the bottom that is not adhered down.  This is the BACK of your card.

3.  Flip your card base over to the front side.  

4.  Adhere your checkered piece to the teal mat layer that is 4-1/4" x 5-3/4" and adhere to card front. 

5.  Attach your 1-1/2" x 4" patterned paper to the 1-3/4" x 4-1/4" teal mat and attach between your 2 score lines on card front.

6.  Attach your white piece to the middle of your 6-1/4" x 3" red piece.  

7.  Hold that piece so that the 1" scored section is at the bottom and apply glue to the front of that 1" section.  Lay it flat onto your checkered card front so that the bottom of the part you just glued is right at the score line of card base and bring the rest of the card base up onto your glued tab and rub to secure.

8.  Add glue to the front of the 1/4" tab.  Fold the 1-1/4" flap backwards and with the card in folded position, attach the top of your pop out piece to the checkered back.  

9.  With card still in folded position, add glue to both flaps on your 3" x 1" piece and attach one flap to the very bottom of card and the other to the back of your short scored flap as shown below.

10.  Add glue to the flap pictured above and attach your 5" x 2" red piece to that flap so the bottom of your piece is flush with the bottom of that glued piece.  *NOTE:  It will stick up above the glued piece by 1".

11.  Attach your patterned paper that is 1-1/2" x 4-1/2" to it's coordinating teal mat and then attach to that front piece you just glued in step 10. 

12.  For the BACK of card, you can stamp inside your folded white piece, then attach just HALF of it to your card back.  It should be flush with the bottom of card (oops!  I missed that part!)

13.  Attach your teal layer to it's white mat and adhere to the right side of card back as shown.  You can cut a piece of patterned paper to that teal piece if you wish.  

Here is what the card base looks like before decorating.

14.  Die cut your pieces and assemble.  Stamp your images and fussy cut.

15.  For one of my poodles on the top of card, I wanted to pop him out away from the back of card a bit, so I created a 1/2" cube and glued the back and bottom of cube and insert to back and top of red pop out feature, then glued my poodle to the front of the cube.

16.  Finish decorating with all your images/die-cuts.

This card folds flat to a 5" x 7" size and fits into an envelope ☺

I hope you'll try this or something creative with your favorite CottageCutz dies!
