[Video]Artfully Sent Halloween Pop Up Card - Close to My Heart Cricut

Today's card is a fun pop up Halloween card from the new Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge!
Step One was to decorate the front, which I show in the video below.
Then comes the tricky part - folding the "Happy Halloween" just right. I go through all the steps in the video below.
Notice this detail above - it takes some planning to get it to fold properly and so the card folds up nicely. The video below shows just how to do this.

Here are the cuts I used:
Below is #M1067C2 on the Explore
Below is #M458E2 on the Explore
Below is #M4628F on the Explore
Here are the products I used:
Below you can check out the video on how to make this card. 

I apologize for the length of the video but I wanted to be sure you knew each step and could see how the folds worked on the pop up portion.

  1. I have made POP-UP cards before they are lots of fun!! You did one wicked awesome creative job yours I love it.
    Just everything about it is BOOtabublous!!

  2. A few - with Cricut carts, the Cameo, and by hand! My family is always very impressed! Haha!

  3. I have never made a pop up card. Hey look so intimidating! Yours is awesome though. I'd love to make one using a Cricut cart though. I think it would be easier.

  4. I have only made one pop up card and that was Elmo on the Sesame Street cartridge. Folding him was indeed the most difficult part but giving it to a child, they didn't notice any imperfections.

  5. Joy...Bless you for the patience you took to figure this out and to share a video to help us through it! I will try it! Got my cartridge and stamps and the bonus from you too! THANK YOU So much!

  6. What a cute card! I've only made one pop-up card and it took me two tries to get it right. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I've made one pop up card. Your card is adorable!

    Never made a pop up card - yet! Thanks for sharing your creativeness with us! Love the card.

  9. No, I've never made a pop up card, looked too hard before. Thanks for your video, it made it look so easy. Love your cute card!

  10. Love your frightfully cute card!!! I've never made a pop up card, but I can't wait to try. Thanks for your great video, I always love them!

  11. Very fun card. I have only made a few pop up cards.

  12. What a fun card, Luv it!!! I have made a couple pop up cards. Excited to try some more. :)

  13. I love this card, so fun!! Thank you for the video. It's great to see how these cards come together.


  14. Like the style of pop-up cards. Not sure any of the cards I'cve made could be called po-ups in this manner.

  15. Great video, Joy! I would never have been able to figure this on my own. My AS cartridge just arrived yesterday,so I am hoping to have time to play with it over the weekend. Thank you so much for all of the great tips. BethAnn M.

  16. Love your card! Halloween is such a fun time to create, love all the colors!

  18. I made some Halloween pop up cards for grandkids and a couple of pop up scrapbook pages. But mine never looked as good as yours. You did a great job! Thanks for sharing and for all the prizes.

  19. What an awesome card! I just love this new cartridge! But It is funny to see someone else have 2 left hands. I was beginning to think I was the only one that ripped my cards apart because something wasn't straight or didn't go right. LOL! What a great tip you gave by putting the stamp on the table to line it up straght. Thanks for sharing your fun card and you great tip!

  20. I have never made a pop up card before. I just recently (yesterday) purchased a Cricut Explore. I came across your blog and youtube channel while searching on tutorials. I just bought the Artfully Sent cartridge. I'm excited to learn how to use my cricut.

  21. I have never made a pop up card. Your video was very informative and funny. Thanks

  22. Two years ago I made Boo popup cards. I dangled a spider right in front of the boo. So much fun to make.

  23. I own the pop-up card cart so you would think I should have done one by now, but no...I'm to worried I'll screw things up.

  24. I do not have the cartridge and I have never made a pop- up - I know my grandson would love to get a pop up card made by his granny.

  25. The more I see it the more I want it
