Pull Up Card

I was fascinated by various pull up cards I have seen on Pinterest and decided to make one of my own. The card looks like it might be very complicated to make, but It's really quite easy.
I used a video tutorial  here.

This is a  side view and shows the card almost flat.  It has 4 concertina fold columns with  a pull mechanism in the middle. Pull the card up by the ribbon and it opens up like a lantern.  Let go, and it closes up flat enough so it  can even be mailed.  But because the card is an odd size, the envelope needs to be made using the envelope punch board.

Parts needed to made card:"

  • 4 pieces 2 by 12" cardstock for concertina columns. ( Rich Razzelberry) These are scored at 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10"
  • 20 pieces of plain card stock 1 3/4 by 1 3/4/ squares to mat ( Basic Black)
  • 16 pieces of 1 1/2 by 1 1/2" DSP to layer on top (Sweet Soiree)
  • 4 pieces of 1 1/2 by 1 1/2 Whisper White card stock to stamp sentiments on.
  • one piece 6 1/4 by 6 1/4 for card base.(Rich Razzelberry)
  • one piece of 6 by 6" to layer on card base. (Sweet Soiree)
  • to pieces of  7/8 by 31/4"strips to hold card together. (Blushing Bride)
  • Two 1 1/4" circles
  • One 1" circle
  • 1/8" hand held punch
  • 12" ribbon
The video directions are very easy to follow and the card comes together very easily.
The birthday sentiments are from "Birthday Blossoms.

Here the card is partially opened.  The 4 concertina columns are readily seen.

Because it is a larger size, an envelope can be made using the Envelope Punch Board, or make a box.
