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.
Imagine That digi set – My Sailmate and free papers
Stampendous Pop-up die set
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.
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.
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.
