Pillar Pop Up Fancy Fold card with Waves of the Ocean

It’s the Labour Day long weekend here in Victoria, so I’ve had an extra day to play with my new goodies that arrived on Saturday!

Today’s card is inspired by Rachel Tessman and you can see her video here. I changed mine up a bit by just using a normal A5 card, rather than the stand she creates. I just adore this style and I can see myself making many more, they just have a real wow and still fit into an envelope to post!

My card base is Night of Navy 21cm x 14.8cm folded in half. Using the Stitched Rectangle dies to create the frame (2, 3, 5 & 6). Use 2 & 6 together for the Navy frame and 3 & 5 for the DSP on the frame. Glue the DSP on the frame before adding one wave in front and one wave behind and trimming the excess.

Stitched Rectangle Dies Numbers

The pillars are created using a piece of the same DSP. These need to be 3″ tall, so start with a 6″ piece and score at ⅜”, ¾”, 1⅛”, 1½” and cut at 1¾” – then cut in half at 3” to have 2 pieces. Fold these to create the pillars and adhere them to the back of the frame. Rachel lines hers up with the edge of the card, however because I was using an A5 metric card base, I lined my frame up with the edge of the background DSP.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set before die cutting and adhering to the card.

When adhering the frame to the card, Rachel lines it up with the edge of the card, however because I was using a metric card base, I lined my frame up with the edge of the background DSP.

It folds flat to fit in an envelope and can be folded to the right…
