Sliding Pop-Up Card

by Kim Score
Create a card that moves, pops and stands all at once with this sliding pop-up technique.


  • Score board and bone folder, or scoring blade for paper cutter
  • Strong adhesive
  • 1" Circle punch
  • One 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of heavy cardstock for card base
  • One 5 3/8" x 4" piece of heavy cardstock for pop-up back
  • One 1 1/2" x 9" piece of patterned paper for sliding wrap
  • One 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" piece of heavy cardstock for pop-up front
  • One 1" x 2 3/4" piece of heavy cardstock for back pop-up mechanism
  • One 1/2" x 1 1/2" piece of heavy cardstock for front pop-up mechanism


  1. Step 1

    Stamp or emboss pop-up back as desired.

    Score the following pieces as follows:
    5 3/8" x 4" - score at 1 1/2" on long side
    1 1/2" x 2 1/2" - score at 1/2" on long side
    1" x 2 3/4" - score at 1/2" on each end
    1/2” x 1 1/2” - score at 1/2" on each end

    Apply adhesive below score lines. For 1" x 2 3/4" piece, tape one end then flip to other side and tape other end. 
  2. Step 2

    Attach sliding wrap at bottom of pop-up back. 
  3. Attach pop-up front piece on score line of pop-up back.
    Attach front pop-up mechanism at score line of pop-up front piece.
  4. Step 3

    Fold front pop-up mechanism towards score line of pop-up back.
  5. Step 4

    While holding pop-up mechanism in place, fold pop-up back forward to adhere to pop-up mechanism.
  6. Pop-up front should now be assembled as shown.
  7. Step 5

    Fold down flat and apply tape to one end of wrap. Place card base behind pop-up back with bottom edges aligned. Turn over and adhere wrap piece in back (don’t stick to card base!). Wrap should be snug but allow card to lay flat. 
  8. Step 6

    Slide card base out from wrap and stamp greeting about 1” from bottom. Punch through pop-up back piece as shown.
  9. Step 7

    Adhere back pop-up mechanism 1” from edge of card base and lay flat.
  10. Step 8

    Slide wrap piece onto card base. Line up sliding wrap at bottom of card base and then fold flat, adhering to back pop-up mechanism.
  11. Add stamped or punched pieces to front of pop-up.
  12. Step 9

    Your image will pop up when you pull on the
