Oddball Geek Pop Out Card | Stamping Bella Tutorial

Hi all. Today I am sharing how I made this  Pop Out Card featuring Oddball Geek. I saw a die recently that was designed to make this card and just by looking at the die I could see it would be an easy card to make by hand. There is a little bit of cutting for the layers, but the base of the card is simple scoring and folding. 

Circle dies
Scoring board and bone folder

How to:
Stamp Oddball Geek twice, onto white blending card. Stamp the sentiment onto a strip of card. 
Colour one of the images, and just the laptop from the other image. 

Cut out Oddball Geek using a circle die or punch

Cut the image out using a circle die, and a cut a larger paper circle layer. 
Set the image and the sentiment aside. 

For the card base:
Cut 2 pieces of white card measuring 11" x 5.5" 
Score both pieces on the 11" side at 2.75" and 8.25" 

One ONE of the 11" x 5.5" pieces, make a notch at the 5.5" at the top and bottom, on the 11" side. 

Score from each of the outer corners, diagonally, to the 5.5" marks. 

Mountain fold the 2.75" and 8.25" score lines, and valley fold all the diagonal score lines. 

Fold in the outer panels and crease all the score lines. 

On the back of the folding mechanism, apply adhesive on the centre panel and the 2 outer large triangles. 

Adhere the front folding mechanism to the back piece of the card base. 

For the layers, cut:
2x   3.75" squares of card
2x    3.5" squares of card
2x   2 5/8" x 5 3/8" pieces of card
1x   5.25" square (back of card - optional)

Cut one of the 3.75" pieces diagonally
Cut both 3.5" pieces diagonally both ways to make 4 triangles. 

1x   3.5" pieces of paper
2x   3.25" piece of paper
2x   2.5" x 5.25" piece of paper (and extra layers to decorate)

Cut the 3.5" pieces diagonally
Cut both 3.25" pieces diagonally both ways to make 4 triangles. 

Adhere all the paper pieces to the card pieces and then adhere them to the card front and back. 

Cut a 3.5" square and a contrasting 3.25" square to layer into the centre diamond. 

Adhere the layered sentiment into the centre. 

To create a belly band, cut a piece of card measuring 2.75" x 11.75" (this is the length of an A4 sheet of card).
Centre the card strip over the card and bend around to the back. They should slightly overlap. Apply adhesive to the end that overlaps and adhere it to the other end. 

Cut a piece of paper measuring approx. 5.5" x 2.5" for the front and back of the belly band. 

Cut a piece of red paper larger than the image. Adhere the image to the circle using 3D foam dots/tape. Use foam dots to adhere the 2nd laptop over the first one, to add extra dimension to the card. 

Apply adhesive to the back of the image, just where it will sit on the belly band and stick it down. 

Slide on the belly band 

Decorate as desired.
