First I stamped out all my images and colored them using Copic markers. I cut them all out using the Brother Scan’n’Cut. After that, I die-cut all the pieces for the Platform Pop-Up, as well as a window and the letters from Henry’s ABCs.
Hello crafty friends!
Today I am back with a second platform pop-up card and this one is for the current Lawnfawnatic “Inspired by a book, movie, or song” challenge! I chose to create a Ratatoullie card and I really hope you like it! You can watch the video here or you can keep on reading!
To add my Eiffel Tower in the background of the window scene I just used a clipart I found online, sized it to fit into the window, and printed it with my laser printer. I thought it would be really fun to give the tower a metallic look, so I used the iCraft Deco Foil in Pewter and my Minc Foil machine to add foiling to the laser printout. Then, I cut it out using my Brother Scan’n’Cut as well!
First, I layered the ABC die-cuts to spell “Gousteau’s” as a reference to the restaurant in the movie. I cut them out twice, once in red and once in white. I added a little shading to the red cardstock with dark red distress ink and then I glued the white behind the red letter with a slight offset to create more dimension. I also cut a panel to be slightly smaller than the window and ink blended a sky on it with the Cloudy stencil. I also added some brick details with a stencil to the back panel of the platform pop-up.
I actually noticed that the card is much easier to decorate while it’s not yet assembled. So I added all my images to the walls and the little shelves that will go into the platform pop-up! Then I assembled the platform (please see the video here for a detailed view of how it comes together!).
As a finishing touch, I added some extra sparkle with a shimmer pen on all the copper kitchen utensils and lots of Stardust Stickles on various elements of the card. I can never have too much sparkle!
I had lots of fun making this one and I really hope you like it as well!
Until next time!
