Acetate Pop-Up Card + Video

Hello everyone!  Welcome to my Spring Break week, LOL!  I've been looking forward to this week for a while now.  The weather is beautiful and tomorrow we get to celebrate my daughter's birthday!

Frantic Stamper just had a couple of new releases and I wanted to share a new video I put together focusing on one of the new die sets called Pop-Ups #2, which is part of the Elementals series (#13). This new die set is a follow up to the original Pop-Up Card Bases die set.

I hope that that video helped show how to use this very versatile die set!  As you saw, I also shared some dies that will be released soon so you know what you have to look forward to!

Here's one of the cards that I shared in the video that used products already available to order, from the Garden release!

Jen Carter Spring Pop Up Front

Here's the front.  It's quite a bit different from my normal style.  I used the new Spring word die and then used the oldie, but goodie Petite Butterflies die set

The magic for this card happens when you open it up.

I tried something different with this pop-up card.  I used acetate for my base.  It is a nice thick acetate, sold as clear cardstock, and supports the elements very well.  I used patterned paper for the background and then the acetate fit right over the top of it.  The flower pot is a new die set called Gardening Pots and inside it are flowers that I die cut using the Mix 'n Match Daffodils set & the Mix 'n Match Crocus set.

Jen Carter Spring Pop Up Inside Sentiment

I stamped my sentiment on my white cardstock base and then the acetate went right on top of it.  The sentiment is from the new stamp set called Spring is Blooming.  

To adhere the acetate to my card base I placed patterned paper at the bottom of the card (below the sentiment) and adhered it there.  I adhered the top panel by strategically placing adhesive under the butterflies.  It was just enough to hold it in place (and I adhered my butterflies with foam tape).

Here you can see how the pop-up works and how it looks with the acetate.  I really like the effect it gives.

Thank you for joining me today!  I hope your day is wonderful!
