Ocean Scene Pop-Up Box Card

Hello Crafty Peeps,

I've been seeing this style of pop-up box card on Pinterest using dies, but figured I could measure and make one myself. It's been a while since I made any kind of pop-up card, so it was a bit of a fiddle but I got there!

I made the most of my clear stamps from Sweet November Stamps, as they are so easy to quickly stamp, colour and cut out. They are also a great size for this card.

I made my background piece first, using the large island from the 'Dock On The Bay' set. I'm really pleased with how this scene turned out.

I then coloured strips of 'ocean' to cover the sections and front of the card, plus stamped and coloured all my elements to add to the sections. Most of the images are from the same set, then I cut the tail from one of the mermaids on the 'Mermees #3' set. I've been colouring a lot of mermaids lately, so thought it would be fun to just have a glimpse of tail.

Here is a few angles of the finished card:

Thank you for stopping by today, I appreciate your kind comments

  3. This is one fabulous card - just beautiful. On the Die Cut Divas' blog, a die cut machine has to be used in some part of the project and I don't see that one was used, so unfortunately, we can't choose you for a prize, but your card will remain in the entries. Your card is really fabulous and you put a lot of work into it.

  4. Wow Nicola, what a great deal of effort went into the making of this card which is beautifully designed, beautifully stamped, and beautifully inked, coloured, cut, and assembled! Such a treat! Thank you for submitting this fabulous entry to our challenge at Stamping Sensations this month. Crafty Hugs, Lesley
