Hi everyone! Today I have a fun card to share using a new Sizzix pop-up die. I made the card for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge (anything goes). First I coloured a piece of sticky-backed canvas with Distress Stains:
Streak the Stains over the canvas, mist a bit with water. The canvas was adhered to cardstock when dry to give it more stability for the die cutting.
The front of the card was kept fairly simple. A piece of watercolour paper was misted with water and then dragged through Distress Stains smeared on my craft sheet (Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmelade). I dried it with a heat gun and embossed the ticket with Platinum embossing powder. The plane was embossed on white cardstock with the same powder. I used a zig zag On the edge die to cut the orange paper as well as a strip of white paper. The sentiment panel was die cut from the canvas and stamped with Black Soot ink (mist the stamp a few times first for a better impression on the canvas).
Here’s the pop-up inside of the card:
I die cut the pop up from canvas (first adhered to cardstock) and stamped it with a map stamp using Faded Jeans. A slightly larger piece was cut from the watercolour paper and I used the pop-up die to cut the zig zag edges (adhere the paper with repositional adhesive to the die to get a straight cut).
The sentiment panel was also cut from the orange paper and the sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink. A larger version of the airplane stamp was embossed with Platinum powder, as well as a compass. All the white pieces were sponged a bit with Weather Wane ink. The base cardstock was stamped repeatedly with a smaller version of the ticket stamp using Faded Jeans ink.
It is very easy to assemble the pop-up. After folding out the two pop-up panels (the die scores the card too), put strong double-sided tape at the edges and at the fold of the die and then adhere it by lining it up with the fold of the card. The pop-up panels face inwards which gives a great look to the card, the plane looks like it is going to fly right out into the map.
Finally, a ticket and another sentiment was stamped on white paper and sponged with Weather Wane ink.
Thank you so much for visiting!!
