Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Carol writes: "I would like the dimensions for a notecard sized Twisted Pop-Up Card (3 1/2" x 5")."
A: That's such a fun size! If you make 5" square cards, this is the perfect little 'leftover'. To make the smaller size pop-up card, you can follow our site tutorial HERE with the following changes:
In Step 1, cut the card base to 3 1/2" x 10".
In Step 9, cut the layering panels to 3 1/4" x 4 3/4". Mark at 1 5/8" for the diagonal cuts.
In Step 10, cut the focal piece to 3" x 11".
In Step 12, cut the layering panels to 2 1/2" x 2 3/4".
Everything else is the same!
 
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Cindy has a tip for Sewing on Cards: "I often use transparent thread for my bobbin - that way I don't have to keep changing it."
