This Woodland Deer Pop-Up Card is simple and elegant. Here are instructions for how to make the cuts and folds to create the pop-up card and decorate it. Included is a template of the shapes I have designed for this card.
The card takes about 60 - 90 mins. Most of this time is due to the design of the animals and tree. You could make a simpler card in 30 mins once you understand the basics and free hand draw your own designs. This is a good time to use offcuts of paper you may have lying about as you generally use only small pieces for the decoration.
The dimensions of the finished card are 14cm x 14cm (5 1/2" x 5 1/2"). If you choose to make a different size card then you may need to tweak the measurements I provide to suit your card.
