Hiya Stampin' Friends!! So today I have a special project for ya and a major labor of love on my part, lol--this pop-up card took me over 4 hours to create, but I adore how it turned out! I had thought about it the night before (again while I should HAVE been sleeping) and am so happy it turned out even better than I imagined (yes, I REALLY LOVE it, LOL)! All the papers are from My Mind's Eye "Colorful Christmas"--I adore these holiday papers/colors--they make the best stuff I tell ya! The front of the card is decorated w/a tag that was included in the paper kit and I stamped the "Winter Wonderland" sentiment with Paper Trey Ink's set "SnowFall" and some snowflakes on it. The border punch is by Martha Stewart and the snowflake punches can be found HERE--I added some Martha Stewart Snow Glitter to them to make them frosty and some of my favorite buttons which I love to add!
And this is the inside--TA DA!!! I think of it like the jewelry boxes that open w/ the lil' dancers inside :o) This cutie-pie is from the new Victoria Case for SCACD Winter Wonderland release & she's called "Skater"--isn't she lovely! I cut my own snowy drifts from glossy cs to the background & behind her and added more Snow Glitter to them--they are popped up on different levels w/ dimensionals for a 3-D effect. I also hand-cut the trees out of the dp and added them to the hills with dimensionals as well. (click on pictures to see close-ups) I added more frosty snowflakes and the sentiment is from the PTI set "Holiday Wishes". The pond was created with silver mirrored cs and then I piled on Polar White Flower Soft around it for a snowy feel!
Here's a closer look at the background with it's snowy hills & trees! I added some snow glitter to the snowflakes in the dp as well--so it's super sparkly & frosty IRL!
I think she's just a sweetie--don't you? I colored her with Copics and added stardust stickles to her mittens, hat trim & skirt. All her lil' pom-poms got candy pink Sparkle Fluff added to them--so they're soft & fuzzy! Doesn't it look like she's skating on a smooth pond? This card closes up flat (well kinda flat due to all the layers & texture, hee hee) and then she pop's up nicely everytime! Just a thick piece of cs or chipboard folded & attached behind her with Scor-Tape (this is the best for super strong holds) and then attached to the background--easy peasy to do! Do you likee? She's gonna sit on my shelf so I can admire her for a bit and then she'll be my dear friend Susana's Xmas card this year :o)
Now, if you haven't checked out these new "Winter Wonderland" stamps you can see them all HERE--they are super cute! (and if you order the whole set you get 25% off)
