This Back to School Pop Out Card would work for students or teachers. It has been awhile for both and they need a little encouragement to get going again. It is very similar to the thank you card I made a few months ago.
There are two parts to the Back to School pop out card base, the main base and the pop out mechanism. They must be made from the same paper. I got a patterned paper to work because it has a small pattern and is sorta random. A big pattern would be hard to match up. The paper needs to be fairly heavy, at least 100 lb. weight.
The rest of the card can be any weight paper.
I chose red and gold because those are Cordelia’s school colors but the main card is different. You can use any color you want. If you need help selecting colors, try my e-booklet “Coloring your Designs.” It is a big help!
Cutting the Back to School Pop Out Card
Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing. I used a black marker to create a little thicker line. Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut? You can see the trick here. I used a font calledAgent Q and is an Access font. The SVG file uses a font called Arinda and it is available at DaFont.
The panther top embellishment all has very intricate cuts and you should take care removing them from the mat.
Assembling the Back to School Pop Out Card
The center fold is placed directly over the center fold of the large base piece with the two rectangle shaped folded out pieces sticking out. Glue one base card inside the other. Be careful not to get any glue on the pop out mechanism.
And your Back to School Pop Out Card is done. It fits in an A7 envelope for mailing or hand delivery.
