Pop-Out Heart Card

The finished card measures 4.25 x 5.5, although you can adapt this to any size..


  • Template (when printed the template should measure 3.5 inches tall)
  • 1 piece card stock 8.5 x 11


  • Craft knife or scissors
  • Bone folder


  • Rubber stamps, inks, stickers, etc.


  1. Fold your card stock in half widthwise, open and fold lengthwise.
  2. Trace the heart along the fold, placing it in the bottom portion of the card stock, as shown below left.
  3. Cut out the heart while the card stock is folded, making sure NOT to cut along the dotted fold line.
  4. Open out the card stock as shown above right, and use your bone folder to score along the fold lines at the sides of the heart, making sure to keep the lines exactly vertical (this makes sure the heart folds properly).
  5. Refold the card stock so that the heart is on the inside. The heart should be folded outward, toward you.
  6. Decorate and embellish as you desire.

This is a perfect card for Valentine's Day, or just because!
