Pop Up Tuxedo Card

Updated: Jan 13, 2023




This card is a variation on the box pop up card. The box is just scored the same but only one side is cut to make the shirt collar. The supports on the inside are bowed when open and not straight across so the items you are popping out of the box will face forward.

The stamp sets for the fishing shirt are from Pink and Main. There is a link below. You will also find a link to a You tube tutorial below.

For card -all measurements are in inches

4x 10 ½ scored at 2 ½, 5, 7 ½, 10

1x 4 ½ scored at ½ and 4

1 x 3 scored at ½ and 2 ½

9- 3 x ¼ acetate stripes (1 for each item popping out of card)

4- 4 ¾ x 2 ¼ for mat
