Tangled Hearts, Kirigami, Valentine's Day Card

Hi you all, this is the last kirigami card I came up with. I just love, Make the Cut's Popup Card Studio Software so much, that I guess I'll be doing a lot of kirigami this year. You can find it here: http://www.scrappydew.com/popup-card-studio/.

This card was assembled in 20 minutes, It uses  a dab of glue and almost all the hearts of the card have their cut outs in case you want to use more patterned paper. I just used the bottom three ones to keep the attention on the top one.

The card folds flat and has enough space to write sentiments on either sides.

I'm posting a whole bunch of pictures to give you directions on how to fold the card correctly. Do not use a very heavy paper for the white panel, I've realized it is better to use a cardstock not heavier than 45-60 lb

  1. Import in DS
  2. Resize to 10.12 inches wide
  3. Ungroup
  4. Change function for the scoring layer (the one on top of the white panel)
  5. Attach scoring lines to white panel-
  6. Cut
  7. Assemble
  8. Enjoy!

  1. Thank you for sharing this! I had a lot of fun creating this and learning more about the mechanics of pop up card creation!

  2. I love the looks of this card but I’m needing stars instead of hearts, for a congrats on an award...any way I can change hearts to stars ???
