Pop 'n Cuts Floating Floor 2.0

Hello all! Back in October I posted a YouTube video and blog post showing how to create a Floating Floor to fit the Pop 'n Cuts Base Die. That technique has been very popular and I've loved seeing what people have created using the template.

While working on cards for a class it struck me that we needed a template to add a Floating Floor to one of the "Stand-up" Pop 'n Cuts designs. These are the designs that open up to a fully flat card with a pop-up item in the middle. (Frame, Star, Poinsettia, Ribbon Tree) I decided to make a Floating Floor to fit the Frame die, since it is the most generic shape and can be used for any theme.

My class card uses the Floating Floor to animate the Flagpole Die, providing the ability to move the poles away from the center of the card for more dimension.

*Edited to add* If you're having problems with the above link loading, you can also download the template on my blog here: Floating Floor 2.0 Template

You can also use the Floating Floor to animate additional pop-up items by cutting slits and using "L" supports as explained in the YouTube video.

By combining die cutting with an add-on template, you can take your Pop 'n Cuts Frame cards to a whole other level!
