Valentine Day Pop-up Card Kissing Couple

DIY Valentine Day Pop-up Card – Kissing Couple

Hi all! We guide to making the Valentine Day Pop-up Card Kissing Couple.

This pop-up card features a boy and girl in the center of the card, surrounded by a bouquet of flowers.  As you open the card, the boy and girl move toward each other and kiss.  This is a very cute card because it actually moves as you open it, which makes it a very unique and impressive card.  It’s always been one of my favorite cards to make.

Step 1:

 You need download pattern, then print out the pattern on color paper.  Use the pattern to cut out all the parts out of card stock. Fold the “boy” and “girl” at the dotted lines and insert the bottom tabs into the slots in the inside card as shown in image 1 above.

Step 3:

Image 3 shows what the smaller tab looks like after it is inserted into the inside card.  Insert the larger tabs into the opposite slot.  The tabs are separate so you will need to carefully push them together, in order to fit them in the slot.

Instructions – Step by Step 

How to make New Year Greeting Card       

1. On the 5.5” x 8.5” black cardstock paper, use a pencil and circle template to draw a 2” diameter circle.

2. On this same black cardstock, draw four other 1.5” diameter circles about 1” apart from one edge to another

How to make New Year Greeting Card  

3. Use the zigzag decorative edge scissors to cut out these five circles.

4. Erase the pencil marks on these circles. Or use these pencil marked sides as the bottom faces.

5. On the 2” diameter circle, use the multicolored metallic thread to wrap around the grooves of the zigzag cuts.

After the first turn, go through another turn but this time with a different offset.

6. On the first 1.5” diameter circle, use the multicolored metallic thread to wrap around the grooves of the zigzag cuts as well.

7. On the second 1.5” diameter circles, first, use the metallic gold thread around on the circle grooves. Then use the metallic copper thread at a different offset.

8. On the third 1.5” diameter circles, first, use the light blue rayon thread around on the circle grooves. Then use the light green rayon thread at a different offset.

9. On the last 1.5” diameter circles, first, use the pink rayon thread around on the circle grooves. Then use the red rayon copper thread at a different offset.

10. Put all the circles in place just to know their approximate locations on the 4” x 6” black cardstock paper. Don’t glue them down yet.

11.On this same cardstock, write “Happy New Year!” with white pen on the bottom right corner.

12. Use the gold pen to trace out a square-like pattern that looks like square rooftops at a distant horizon. Draw this just above the white lettering.

13. Use the gold pen to randomly trace out the fireworks path from the distant roof top horizon to the circle locations.

14. Score the 6.5” x 9” maroon cardstock paper right in the middle and fold into a 4.5” x 6.5” card

15. Glue the completed 4” x 6” black cardstock right in the middle of the folded maroon cardstock. This leaves a ¼” margin all around the black cardstock paper.

How to make New Year Greeting Card  

Glue all the circles in place on the black cardstock. The biggest circle shifts out about 3/16” from the edge of the black cardstock. And the other circles shift out ⅛” from the edges as well.

Glue the acrylic jewels at the center of the finished circles. Use the biggest jewel for the biggest circle.

 And with that last step, the card is finished.

Hope you’ve decided on the colors and types of thread to use in creating your own new year greeting card.

From the pictures above, there were a few other metallic strings that did not make it into the card. They include silver and yellow gold colored metallic thread spools.

Apart from these, there are many more options in the craft and sewing stores.

So the choice is yours. Have fun with the hunt and decision.

And, at the end of the day, may you have a new year that’s as fun and vibrant as this new year greeting card depicts.
