Now back to the Hop… I’m sharing two pop-up cards featuring new products from the Crafty Hugs release.
My hop cards feature the following new items:
Let’s see what poppin’ up inside…
Card 1: Thank You Pop-Up Card
I’m using the XL Thank You die set on the outside of this 5-1/2″ square pop-up card. I used a deep purple for the shadow and also cut a shadow piece from 4mm black craft foam to make the phrase dimensional. I added Fossilized Amber distressed ink to the “you” word to highlight.
I used the Plank Background stamp set for the background. Copic Sketch Markers in the following colors were used to color the background: BG11, BG49, B000, BV01, BV11, BV13, Y00, Y21, and Y26.
When the card is opened, the beautiful flowers from the So Beautiful stamp set pop up from the inside of the card. In addition, the Swirl Heart Wafer Die also pops up in front of the flowers.
I used the same colors mentioned above to color the flowers. I also stamped the flowers again, on the inside bottom in black. Specks of black were also added. Lastly, I stamped the phrase “Your awesomeness if boundless” from the stamp set Emphatic to complete this card.
Card 2: Crafty Hugs Pop-Up Card
My second card features the adorable Crafty Bunnies. I’m also using the Grid Play Background stamp on this 5″ X 7″ landscape-oriented card. On the outside, the bunny duo is the focal point with a simple black and white grid background design. The phrase was heat embossed in white on black cardstock and popped up.
Inside the card you’ll find the bunnies’ craft studio, all decked out with lots of crafty goodness. I used the Grid Play Background stamp to create a wall storage system for the bunnies’ supplies. I used the squares to store the many stamps, dies, glue, paint supplies and more. A chair, table and die cutting machine are attached to the back wall.
In the forefront is the craft table, two chairs, a supply cart and the bunnies. To make the pop-up supports I cut strips, 1/2″ thick cardstock and scored at the following lengths:
Pop-up strip for the supply cart: Score at 1/2″, 1-1/2″, 2″, 3″ to create a box support that stands 1″ from the background.
Pop-up strip for the craft table, chairs and bunnies: Score at 1/2″ 2″, 2-1/2″ 3″ 4-1/2″ to create a box support that stands 1-1/2″ from the background.
These supports allow the forefront items to pop up when the card is opened. I added wood planks that I hand-drew and colored for the floor of the studio. Lastly, the “crafty friends…” phrase was stamped in the inside to finish this card.
Here’s two more cards I made using these products. If you have not done so, check out these projects I shared earlier this week on my blog. Thank You Card link here and Crafty Friends Card link here
