Pop it Ups

Snowman Pop Up Card

November 5, 2014

Card Front

I love how the Snowman in Frame Peel-Off perfectly coordinates with the Snowman die. For this card I used the peel-off on the front of the card then a pop up snowman inside, all beautifully glittered with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.

Making the Card

1. Cut a sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 white cardstock in half lengthwise. Fold one piece in half for a top folding card base.

2. Cut red cardstock 4 x 5 1/4 inches and 3 1/4 x 3 3/8. Cut grid paper 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. Cut white cardstock 3 1/8 x 3 1/4. Adhere grid paper and white cardstock to corresponding red mats.

3. Cut light blue cardstock using main die from Katie Label Accordion. Reverse paper, line up, and cut again to remove tabs, etc. Cut red cardstock with label die (next size down). Adhere to center of light blue cardstock.

4. Place a piece of double sided adhesive to white cardstock large enough to fit Snowman in Frame Peel-Off. Remove release sheet and place it upside down in front of you. Place peel-off sticky side up on release sheet, then place white cardstock with adhesive side facing down on top. Turn over, remove release sheet and cover adhesive with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish and brush of excess glitter. Color with alcohol markers. Fussy cut around design. Stick to center of red/light blue mat using dimensional tape.

5. Cut strip of red cardstock 1 x 4 inches wide. Cut strip of Snowman Paper 1 x 4 inches; adhere to red cardstock so small amount shows at top. Adhere to red/grid mat as shown. Add washi tape as shown, wrapping around back. Cover seam with silver ribbon as shown. Adhere to card front.

6. Cut 4 snowflakes from white cardstock. Using the photo below as a reference for placement, adhere snowman, mats, snowflakes and a small silver ribbon bow. Secure 2 of the snowflakes with foam tape for added dimension.

7. Cut Snowman Paper 4 x 10 3/4 inches. Fold in half. Cut Lorna Label PopUp in center as per instructions. Cut Lorna Label from white cardstock with same die – trim around label.

Adhere this to card base by lining up fold and sticking down one side then the other.

8. Place a piece of double sided adhesive to white cardstock large enough to fit snowman and accessories. Die cut snowman and accessories, except face/buttons. Peel off backing from each piece and cover with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish and brush of excess glitter. Color with alcohol markers. Adhere pieces together as shown. Cut face/buttons from black cardstock. Add Wink of Stella. Glue to snowman as shown. Adhere snowman and broom as shown.

9. Using the photo above as a reference for placement, adhere white/red mat, a small silver ribbon bow and glitter snowflakes. Use your finger to apply a TINY amount of talcum powder or corn starch to take away the stickiness of the adhesive on the back of the snowflakes wherever they extend beyond the cardstock.
