Miss you- interactive card by Karen

 

 
Hello!  I'm back today with my weekly Crafty Meraki Design Team project. I had fun coming up with a different way to use the Celebrate Slimline Tag to make a folding card that also has a Pop Up feature inside! I have a tutorial on YouTube for you as well: 

 
 
I used  blending brushes and a doily in my favourite colours to create the background, and added images from the Valentine and Pixie Perfect stamp sets. 

 
When you open the card, the pop up Floral Hugs is revealed along with a butterfly that bobs and wobbles as it is attached with a strip of acetate.

 
The Floral Hugs was stamped with Momento ink onto Bristol Smooth Card Stock and coloured with Zig Clean Colour markers and a water brush for the bright and vibrant colours.


Partial Diecutting was used to create the tag shaped card base, which I showed in the video. The card stock base was cut to 6 x 7" and scored down the centre at 3". Fold the card stock and align the Celebrate Slimline Tag so that the cutting edge is just above the fold line, which means it will not cut that edge but will cut all the others. Run it through your die cutting machine, cutting through both layers. This gives you the tag shaped card base!
 
Die cut two more Celebrate Slimline Tags and decorate as above, adding one to the front and one to the back of your folded card base. 
 
The Floral Hugs was stamped, fussy cut and coloured with water based markers and a water brush. When dry, I scored 1/2" from each edge and down the centre. Then I added two more score lines - one between the left 1/2" and the centre score lines, and one between the centre and the right 1/2" score line. 
 
Fold along the score lines, starting with a Valley Fold on the left and alternate between 
Valley and Mountain Folds as shown in the video. Adhere inside card using a strong adhesive on the outer edges. Note:  Only put adhesive from the outer edge to the 1/2" score lines!
 
I'm Karen Aicken and I'll be back next week with another Crafty Meraki project - a rainbow Thank You Slimline Card.  Have a wonderful Tuesday!
