Hello, friend! I apologize for not being around much this week. On top of it being the ‘big move’ for my parents, I’ve hurt my back somehow. So that’s really put a damper on things; not being able to sit for long, reach, bend, etc. It’s amazing how much you actually need to reach & stretch for things, when you’re crafting! But, the week is almost over, as is the move, so I’ll be able to rest more. Today I’m here for the word prompt challenge for “FUN”. Yes, it’s fun, but the word is actually ‘fun’!
Now, everyone has different ideas of what is fun. It can be an activity, or reading your favourite book, maybe going to a movie. Or, just sitting with friends. I decided to turn fun into a verb, instead of an adjective – with this fun, interactive card!
Okay, so the front of the card doesn’t give too much away. The glitter cardstock and embellishments hint at something, though. To create the card front, simply die cut the MFT Birthday Wishes Die-Namics from green cardstock. Glue it onto a piece of Memory Box Glitter cardstock (the pack I have is retired, but there’s new packs in store!). Add some Memory Box Fairy Gemstones (Winter Fantasy), and then attach this panel to your card front.
As I explained, I’ve hurt my back, so I had to figure out a card that would be fairly quick to make. The Photo Play Pop Up Card Kit is a life (or back) saver! This pack includes everything you need to create 6 pop up cards. All you need to add is your creativity, some paper and stamps.
Before following the simple directions to attach the pop up piece, add your coloured cardstock to the inside of the card base. On the left side, I stamped 2 sentiments from the Colorado Craft Company Birthday Wishing stamp set in a dark green ink. Next, stamp the balloon holding bunny from the same set in Nocturne ink, onto a piece of white cardstock. Use your favourite markers to colour him and the balloon – I used my Copic markers.
Now you can attach the pop up mechanism to the inside of the card. Next, attach a slightly larger piece of the same glitter paper, behind the bunny, and then attach both to the top of the pop up piece. Stamp another sentiment onto white cardstock, trim, and attach it to the bottom right, below the bunny. The photo below shows how the pop up mechanism looks like, from above.
