As soon as I saw the new challenge over at fussy and fancy I thought of this card. Then I realized that Annie's dt piece was a pop-up box too. However mine was done weeks ago. My friend who lives in Africa asked me to make her a couple of birthday cards for her children and this was one of them.
I first saw this on Linda Page's Blog here. Thanks for all the instructions xx.
For the sides I cut inked the biggest slim jim horizontally with distress inks:
spritzed with water and stamped on white card. I made 4 pieces like this and then cut them up to size. I tried to create landscapes so did not squidge inks in straight lines.
After drying them with a heat tool, I used Clarity stamp grasses and stamped in black archival ink. On the main back panel I stamped sentiment and 10 in black archival and clear embossed it. These are also from Claritystamp.
Then i die cut several flowers using spellbinders dies and assembled them as shown. I used matching distress glitters for the centres of flowers.
The recipient or her mum sure like the card. I hope you do too, Theresa xx
Finished card i 20x20 cm.
