Pop up card
Hi everyone, hope you've had a good week. A card to share today that I've made for the MDUC challenge of a pop up card and also for Simply Magnolia with an anything goes theme. I've coloured sweet 'Star Tilda' with pencils on kraft card that I've cut out with a DooHickey tag die.
The pop out element of my card on the inside is a heart cut with a Tim Holtz movers and shapers die from honeycomb paper. There's a DooHickey snowflake die cut and some punched snowflakes and I've rubbed around the edges of the My Minds Eye card with white rub n buff. So that the card with close I added ribbon around the back and under the front panel to tie at the side.
I die cut lots of Magnolia DooHickey poinsettia flowers from white card, painted them with distress stains and layered them up to make the flowers. I added these together with the Tilda tag overa layer of white punched and die cut snowflakes. The background of the kraft base card was stamped with a Magnolia snowflake stamp in black and then it was edged in rub n buff. Lots of gem stones, a chit chat sticker and gingham ribbon for the tag to finish off.
Close up of the honeycomb paper hearet which I outlined with a white gel pen. Tim Holtz has a good tutorial on how to use this paper on this blog.
Thanks as always for your lovely comments, they're appreciated.
