Hello crafty friends and happy Sunday!! How are you today? I am so so excited to be back with a brand new #challengeacraftyfriend card with my friend Lien! We used to do these challenges all the time but I was so short on time that I had to pause for a while. But now I’m all the more excited to finally do one again! This time the theme was “baby”, so I created this fun interactive Platform Pop-Up card using stamps and dies by Lawn Fawn.
I started by stamping all the images from Rub a Dub Dub, Den Sweet Den, and Snow Much Fun onto marker paper and cut them out using my Brother Scan’n’Cut DX. Then, I colored them using Copic markers. Once I finished coloring, I die-cut all the pieces for the platform, a white lace border, and the letters to spell “baby” with Henry’s ABCs from white cardstock. I ink blended the inside part of the main platform piece with Celery Stick ink and for the background, I used a cloud stencil and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide. I also die-cut 3 grassy hills to go inside the platform and I ink blended those with a bit of Cracked Pistachio. I added a bit of shimmer pen to the bubbles and also added a layer of crystal glaze to make them look dimensional. I set those off to dry for a while until I was ready to continue.
Now it was time to assemble the platform. I folded along all the score lines the die created and I added adhesive to the bottom tab of two T-pieces and to the flaps on the main platform pieces. I show in detail how I do it in the video, so please check that out of you want a better look at it! Then, I added all the images to the grassy hills and then adhered those to the T-pieces inside the platform. I always find it so much easier to decorate the hills before adhering them into the platform or box! I added the lace border around the bottom edge all around the box and added the sentiment on the front of the box. Finally, I added lots of bubbles all around the scene to really make it look like they are flying all over the place.
I had so much fun making this!! You can watch Liens video here. I really hope you liked this one!
