Pop-Up Die Used Differently
For this card, the Pop-Up Die was used differently. Usually pop-ups go on the inside of the card. However, I decided that it needed to be a focal point for a 7th birthday.
The Party Pop-up Thinlit “Happy Birthday” was die cut from Whisper White and trimmed so that only the words remained. The candles were sponged using Crushed Curry, the word “Happy” sponged using Melon Mambo, the line above “Birthday ” and the top of the letters were sponged with Crushed Curry and finally the bottom of the letters were sponged with Mint Macaron. This gives the illusion of variegated colors.
Stamps: Number of Years.
Ink/Markers: Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron.
Paper: Whisper White Thick, Mint Macaron, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer, It’s My Party DSP.
Accessories: Big Shot, Party Pop-up Thinlits, Circles Collection Framelits, Large Numbers Framelits, Basic Black/Melon Mambo Baker’s Twine.
Using the Circle Collection Framelits, a circle was die cut from the confetti pattern paper in the It’s My Party DSP. A piece of black and white arrows from the same DSP was used to fill the circle. Finally, the die cut was placed across the circle creating the main part of the front of the card.
On the inside, the “Look Who’s Turning…” saying was stamped with Melon Mambo ink in the shape of an oval. This really show the versatility of the Photopolymer stamps because of the flexibility of the material used to make the stamps. The number “7” was die cut using the Large Numbers Framelits and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper. Finally, the number was sponged with Melon Mambo ink to make it stand out.
Have you used the Pop-Up die in a different way? Leave me a comment and let me know.
