Pop-Up Diorama Thanksgiving Card

I am always looking for something fun to do with my papercrafts! With the “Wicked Fold” theme for this month’s blog hop, I started combing the internet and found this tutorial by Julie Davison. I really liked the fact that it has the shadow box that pops up automatically and is very easy to make. This feature makes it super flat for mailing! For this reason, I kept the layers and details pretty simple. This would be a great fun fold for your holiday cards!

It’s All in the Details

Diorama Pop-Up Card Base Instructions
  • Julie’s tutorial was easy to follow and gave two different sizes that you can use. I went with the larger size; 5 1/2″ x 12″ and scored at 4″, 7 1/2″, 8′, and 11 1/2″, using the Bundle of Love Specialty DSP. I used my bone folder on each of the fold lines so they all laid down flat in all directions and all positions.
  • Using the scallop circle framelit, I ran the card base through the Big Shot to create the window on the inside of the card. After that, I used Tear & Tape and covered the entire flap to make sure it was very secure.
The Fun Stuff!
  • Front: I first stamped the sentiment from Labels of Love in Always Artichoke, and cropped it with a small scallop circle framelit. Then, the leaf stamp from Painted Harvest was stamped twice in Always Artichoke, then inked and stamped off for two more images. Those leaf images were then punched out with the coordinating Leaf Punch. Using the scallop circle framelit, I cut Always Artichoke CS and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Pinewood Plank embossing folder. Then, I cut Gold Foil paper with the Banner Triple Punch and layered Gold Edge Ribbon on top.
  • Inside Left Panel: I stamped the sentiment in Blushing Bride, then ran the cardstock through the Big Shot with the Lots of Label Framelit. Then, the leaf and circle images were stamped in Always Artichoke and topped with a Gold Enamel Shape. Lastly, Gold Foil paper was cut to fit behind the sentiment. (TIP: Use a lay of wax paper between the framelit and foil paper to keep it looking like new!)
  • Inside Right Panel: The sentiment was stamped and cut with a scallop circle framelit, then layered onto Gold Foil paper that was cut with a circle framelit and then layered on top of the circle that came from cutting into the card base. These were adhered to the card base, being careful that they would show through the hole in the card base. Then, two leaves were cut with Always Artichoke, layered onto Very Vanilla Banner and topped with a Gold Enamel Shape.

Tranquil Tulips Make a Beautiful Bouquet from Stampin’ Up!

By Debbie Mageed, Tranquil Tulips, Beautiful Bouquet, Painted Harvest, Thank You, Stampin Up

 

Hey, Sistahs! I hope you enjoyed our last challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters because we sure enjoyed visiting your beautiful creations!! If you didn’t get a chance to play, here’s another chance with a great prompt – “PINK: Pink October (cancer awareness month)  – anything pink, you can even have pink pumpkins, pink fall leaves, anything as long as it’s PINK.” After just recently having my own breast cancer scare (turned out negative, Thank God!), I think we should all be taking this month seriously. Make sure you don’t miss your mammograms! But, anyhooo, back to my card… I wanted to use one of the new Stampin’ Up! Host stamp sets that really makes great floral cards, Tranquil Tulips. Tulips are a spring flower but I love them! Since it’s fall, I just paired it with a darker color, Fresh Fig. The sentiment is from Beautiful Bouquet, which is another great stamp set in the new catalog and has great sentiments in lovely fonts!

It’s All in the Details
  •  This card is 4 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. I have really enjoyed the little extra “real estate” on a card front lately! The Fresh Fig card base is 11″ x 4 1/2″ and scored at 5 1/2″.
  • The Whisper White cardstock was cut to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ and embossed in the brand new Quilt Top embossing folder. I absolutely love it!!
  • The Patterned DSP from Petal Garden Memories & More Card Pack was cut to 2″ x 5 1/4″ and adhered onto the card base.
  • Two wreaths in Fresh Fig was cut with the Swirly Thinlits and adhered to the card base.
  • Fun Part: I stamped a bunch (bouquet?) of tulips in Powder Pink and Fresh Fig, and then fussy cut them out. Then, I stamped the stems in Old Olive. I cropped it with the Lots of Labels Framelits, sponged the edges, wrapped Finely Woven Ribbon around it to the back, and popped it up on dimensionals. Then, the flowers were arranged and adhered to the stems, some were popped up with dimensionals.
  • A double bow made in Powder Pink was adhered. The sentiment was stamped in Fresh Fig and cropped with the small Tags & Labels Framelits and tied to the Fresh Fig ribbon with a scrap thread  from the very last of a ribbon that I have long since used up – sigh…
  • Finishing Touch: Did you know that Touches of Nature Elements are wood-colored on one side and white on the other? Well, I used the white side to flank the bow and adorn it on top with a Pink Pirouette Enamel Shape in the middle of the flower.
  • INSIDE: I stamped the sentiment from Painted Harvest in Fresh Fig and used two of the unused fussy cut flowers. I really love how this card turned out!
