Looking for a special way to show your appreciation for all of Dad’s hard work? Send him a fun pop-up card made with elements from the new Just For Men papercrafting collection and the Big Score.


Step 1 - Pop Up Workbench Card by Annie Williams, Cut Materials

Step 1: Trim a piece of navy cardstock to 10” x 7”, silver cardstock to 4.75” x 6.75”, patterned paper from the Just For Men Urban Collection 6x6 pad to 4” x 5.5”, and white cardstock to 3.75” x 2.5”.

Use the Big Score to make a pop up card.

Step 2: Align your navy cardstock at the left side of the Big Score, score at 5”, and burnish at the crease to create a basic top folding A7 cardbase.

Step 3: Stamp the sentiment from the Rock Star stamp set onto the lower right corner of the inside of the cardbase with embossing ink, add silver embossing powder, and melt it with a heat tool.

Use the Big Score for your crafty projects.

Step 4: Align the white cardstock at the left side of the Big Score and score at 0.5”, 1”, 1.5”, and 2” to create a slatwall. Ink the edges with brown ink if desired.

Step 5: Place the short side of the patterned paper against the left edge of the Big Score and score at 0.25”, 3”, 3.5”, and 5.25” (score lines have been digitally enhanced to aid in visualization).

Step 6: Rotate the paper counter-clockwise and score at 0.5” and 3.5” up to the second horizontal score line (score lines have again been digitally enhanced to aid in visualization).

Inky fun with your Father's Day card

Step 7: Trim out the area shown using scissors (created by the vertical score lines and the second horizontal score line). Crease the patterned paper at the first, third, and fourth horizontal score lines and ink all workbench edges with brown ink.

Have fun making a pop up card.

Step 8: For perfect alignment of the pop-up element on the cardbase: add adhesive to the long ¼” tab (pattern side), fold the workbench flat at its third score line as shown, line the workbench up with the top edge of the inside of the card, and press the tab against the top half of the card to adhere.

Step 10: To decorate the front of the card, emboss the silver cardstock panel with the Checkerplate Embossing Folder and ink the surface gently with black ink to enhance the texture.

Step 11: Add colourful layered die-cuts to the cardfront using the Superstars and Male Sentiments dies (Tip: liquid glue works better to adhere die-cuts on top of deeply embossed surfaces like this).

Step 12: Die-cut and emboss the tools out of silver cardstock and other colourful cardstock to fill your workbench. Be sure to hang one or two from the slatwall!
