Double Picture Pop Up
Happy Christmas Eve to you all!
Well as we all say every year – that's it – if I forgot something – TOUGH!!!
I've had a lovely day – did my baking, a bit of last minute cleaning – then had my long time friend Paula pop over for our Christmas Eve ritual...a mince pie or two, a slice of home made quiche and a cuppa! Then exchange our pressies...
Then this evening its been a lazy one so far – just watching TV and cutting out decoupage ready for my next lot of cards!!
So today I am sharing the 2nd Golden Wedding card I made for Pat & George...this is a lovely and quite unusual kit by Sandie Burchell called Golden Roses Double Picture Pop Up 3d Card Kit
and it was purchased from www.craftsuprint.com
So materials for this card I used ….
Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...
The sheets needed for the card and envelope
Cream hammered card
Glitter in clear and gold
Crafters Companion Stick & Stay
Double sided tape normal and red
Eazi Score Board & tool
Tonic 8” guillotine
Shaping tool from www.dimensionstamps.com
Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat
To make the card …
I printed the sheets then roughly cut out all the sheets then sprayed the back with Crafters Companion Stick & Stay, after the 30 seconds they suggest I pressed them onto the smooth side of the cream hammered card and cut them all out.
The main card was then scored and folded to create the basic card blank.
I cut out the fan and panel decoupage and stuck to the card front with small sticky pads.
Next I cut out all the inside elements – I scored and cut where indicated on the sheets and it was surprisingly easy to put the pop up/pop out panels together
All sections went together perfectly first time so I was so pleased I went with this one – when I first looked at the sheets and instructions I wasn't sure it would go right 1st time..
There wasn't much to decorate either – I sprayed the pop up panels with Crafters Companion gold glitter spray and it looked lovely.
On the front I used some beautiful clear AB gems gluing 1 to each of the fan panels...and then added a little glamour dust to the white flowers.
I added a very loving verse to the back of the card and finished by making the matching envelope.
I would just like to say if you have looked at these cards in the past but them put them back – please be brave – print them out, read the instructions and just enjoy it...they honestly are so easy.
I would just like to wish you all a very merry christmas
Not sure yet if there will be a card tomorrow or not
