Snow Day means Crafty Day! My kids spent the morning painting and I spent the afternoon card making. Overall, a great way to deal with too much snow!
I made 3 cards with pop –up insides today. I used the same card base as the Balloon Pop Up cards. I wanted to keep the decoration of this card simple. I love the way it turned out.
Size: Horizontal top fold A2 card
Extra Details: First, I created my card bases from some light blue cardstock. I made four card bases like this. I stamped a variety of clouds on the front and inside of the card bases using white pigment ink. For the solid cloud images, I used second generation stamping for a lighter impression.
Next, I stamped my sentiment speech bubble and the little fox. I used a red ink for the speech bubble. Distress Inks became water colors to add color to my fox
Then, I pulled out my die cutting machine again. I cut the Forest Border form darker green card stock and the Grassy Border from some lighter green card stock. I made four of each. I used the Everyday Pop Up dies from Lawn Fawn to on the darker green panel to create some pop up tabs. I fussy cut the speech bubble and the fox out. I also cut an extra strip of the Grassy Border from a scrap of light green card stock.
I created the insides of my cards first. I started by adhering the darker green pop up panel to the card base. I used glue dots on the pop up tabs to adhere the grassy border piece. I used strong double sided tape to adhere the second grassy panel to the first one.
I adhered the speech bubble to the front of the card with foam tape. I tucked the fox into the grass on the inside and stamped my tiny I love you sentiment.
