Hi everyone! Today I have a fun card to share using Sizzix Karen Burniston’s Pop’n Cuts 3D Label die. The pop-up dies are so much fun to work with. I love acetate cards and wanted to do a pop-up with a clear base and a clear pop-up insert. This is the result:Birds on a Wire die and since I am using a silhouette stamp on the inside, I thought I should use a silhouette on the outside too. The birds were cut from black modeling film. The film is pretty thick and the die didn’t quite cut through (it probably would have if I had run it through my BigShot a few times), but it was easy to just cut the birds out with scissors along the cutting lines. I heated up the film and shaped one bird at the time. It cools down quickly, so it is easiest to do one bird at a time. Love the dimensional silhouette birds.
fence cut from kraftcore cardstock and sanded. I found some distress ink watercoloured scraps in my stash, from my Chest of Drawers project (you can see the inks that were used to create the papers there), and another piece of pink watercolour paper. I cut two blue birds (from the Birds on a Wire), a few leaves and swirls and some small flowers with the Tattered Floral Garland die. They were layered on the fence to sort of frame the focal image. I didn’t add pearls of bling to the flower centers, because I wanted to keep them flat so that the card would close.
Attaching things is often tricky with clear cards because adhesive will show through. First, I planned to stitch the matte cardstock and the pop-cut acetate to the base acetate, but then I decided to use my tiny attacher instead. The staples holding the front piece are hidden at the front by the birds.
Thank you for looking! Have a great day!
