Sailing on

Over at Imagine That Digi’s this month the stamp of the month is on a nautical theme. I have recently given into temptation, again!, and bought a new die which makes for an easy pop up card.

Inside view

Materials used:
Imagine That digi set – My Sailmate and free papers
Stampendous Pop-up die set
printing paper
stamping card
dark blue card
sentiment stamps and memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
Copic and Spectrum Noir pens

I printed out the papers and elements onto the different papers depending on type. I used the pens to colour the boy, girl, life belts and wheels. I die cut the bubble paper twice to make the inside pop-up piece.

Close up of inside

I fussy cut my coloured images (cutting out the little bits from the life belts and wheels took a while). I stuck a snippet of left over bubble paper behind the life belts and wheels then attached them to the pop-up tabs before attaching the boy and girl to the larger tabs. I used the blue card to make an A5 card blank and glued my pop-up piece inside making sure not to get glue on the tabs.

Front view

For the front of the card I used different elements from the kit to build up the scene then stamped the sentiments on the front. Finally I stamped Happy Birthday inside the card leaving the left hand side clear for writing on.

It is the first time I have had a go at a pop-up card but I don’t think it will be the last!

Thanks for popping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
