Good morning crafters. How is your week going? It has been a busy one here with catching up on a weeks worth of work. I've also been completing the second of my Stitch Along owls. Hopefully he should be finished today and I can share a picture with you on Friday.
I have seen a lot of these Pop Up Slider Cards around on the internet recently. I really love the idea of the surprise pop up element. So I decided to have a go at teaching this card at my last card class. For my colour scheme I used the Cherry on Top Cardstock pack as my inspiration- Watermelon Wonder and Bermuda Bay.
To create my card I used a fantastic Splitcoast Stampers tutorial (you can find it here). Once I had all my elements cut I covered my base with birthday images from the Party Wishes stamp set. I also stamped my balloon panel. I used the 'stamping off' technique to get the differing tones for my balloons (ink up your stamp and then stamp on to a piece of scrap paper before stamping on to your main project giving a lighter tone to your stamping). I stamped two balloons on to a spare piece of Whisper White and punched with the coordinating Balloon Punch and mounted with Dimensionals.
This is what the card looks like folded flat (this would fit in to a standard sized envelope).
This is the pop up section at the top of the card. I stamped with the Party Wishes sentiment and added detail from the Balloon Celebration stamp set.
