Supplies

How to Make

1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the card pieces.

Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re not using the SVG file that includes score lines, you can use the PDF version as a reference to know where your folds should go.

 

2. Carefully fold the card so that “Mom” pops out correctly. Then, glue the two layers of the card together.

 

3. Attach all of your detail pieces, starting with the lemons and the letters on the pop-out section of the card. Then, add the flowers to the branches, and layer everything together as shown. Add extra “bud” details to your floral branches with your paint pen/marker, and add some stripes to your bees as well.

Note: If you feel like the the flowers are just too small to work with, I totally understand. You can save time/hassle by doing them all in marker if you prefer.

 

4. Finish assembling your card. Attach the large top wreath with a couple layers of foam tape.

For the lower pieces, fold back the bottom, rectangular portions, and attach it as shown in the picture. I’ve included some score marks in the file to help you line these up correctly as well.

Lastly, attach your bees! I forgot to photograph this step, but you can either glue the little guys on where you see fit, or attach a couple of them to wires for a bit of extra whimsy.

I know card making is its own niche in the paper craft world, and it’s one I haven’t really explored much. But, hopefully this design meets at least a mid-level standard for all you card making aficionados!

I really enjoyed doing this design; so, if you like it, let me know if you would like to see more pop-up card design like this in the future!

    Hi Mandee, just wondering how easy/difficult it would be to change MOM to MUM as that would be the appropriate spelling here in Australia

      For this particular card design, it would require quite a bit of reworking since the pop-out features are tied to the shape of the letters. But if you have your own design software, you could pull it off!

      Otherwise, I do have a different, simpler card design available that uses “Mum” if you would like. 🙂

    I tried making this, but the score lines all cut. I don’t see the bright green score lines??? I uploaded it into Design space. I am using the .svg file. What am I doing wrong?

      Hi Karen! Sorry you’re having trouble.

      Yes, the lines need to be set up as “score lines” before you send it to the machine. They don’t show up as green when it is initially uploaded, but if you click on the layers and see one that shows bright green in the color swatch area, that indicates that it is meant to be a score line. Then, just make sure to attach it to the shape it is grouped with. 🙂

        Hello 🙂 I’m trying to make this card with my Cricut Maker- i switched everything over to score that was green- But it keeps putting all of the score lines on a separate mat. If i click “attach” it attaches the entire project onto one mat. It wont let me attach just the specific grouping. Any idea why that would be happening? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much this card is beautiful!

          Hi Kelly! Okay, I think I know what you need to do! You’re pretty much there, you just need to “ungroup” everything first (Cricut automatically groups the whole project when uploaded to Design Space). Then, all of your score line/design groups should be separated out correctly, and you should be able to attach them to their proper shapes. 🙂

          Hope that helps!
