Happy Sunday friends! Today I'm sharing this interactive pop up box card I created for Spellbinders this month. Interactive cards are one of my favorite things. And pop up cards? They take the cake! The pop up cards I’ve mailed to friends and family are always a huge hit. Today I’m going to share how I created this prehistoric pop up scene with the new Die D-Lites Dinosaurs and lots and lots of other Spellbinders dies.
Four panels and four inserts were die cut from brown cardstock using the Shapeabilities Heart & Home Scalloped Pop Up Box Etched Dies. On the box panels, I stenciled and stamped the panels of the box to add that prehistoric “character” I was going for. It’s much easier to do any embellishing of the box panels when they’re flat and then assemble the box and add the rest of the die cuts.
On each of the inserts I added a trimmed down grass die from the Die D-Lites Picket Fence Etched Dies.
Landscapes were created by die cutting a Card Creator Classic A2 Waves Borders Etched Die from brown cardstock, inked up the embossed edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and applied them to the card flaps.
Dinosaurs were die cut using the Die D-Lites Dinosaurs Etched Dies, clouds and a sun using the Die D-Lites Sun and Clouds Etched Dies, and palm trees using the Die D-Lites Palm Trees. The embossed areas on each of the die cuts were inked with Distress Inks to add texture and interest. The eyes, mouths, and scales on the dinosaurs were embellished with black and white pens.
The images were adhered to the pop up card inserts and flaps as shown.
A sentiment was stamped on the front flap and the card was finished with some heart shaped enamel dots.
