Snowman Tag Pop Up Card

Hi everyone,

It's my turn to post a project on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today.  Elizabeth Craft Designs just released some amazing new products today. You can see all the info of what is being released on my blog pots on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog .

Part of the new release are  3 fun tag sets called Tags & More, which are so much fun and there are so many things you can create using these dies, as I am sure you will see in the coming days/weeks when the other Design Team members share their creations using the dies.

For my card today I am sharing a pop up card I created using the Tags & More - Leaves set.

Here is how I created my card: 

1. Cut a piece of light blue card 3 1/2 inches x 12 inches, a piece of dark blue card 3 1/2 inches x 12 inches and another piece of light blue card 3 1/2 inches x approx 7 inches.

2. Score the light blue card at 6 inches, fold and then unfold. Place the Lots of Pops Pop Up Die on the centre score line, secure in place using removable tape. Place the tag die at the top of the card and secure in place using removable tape. Place card through die cutting machine.

3. Remove both dies from the light blue card. Place the decorator die which is included in the tag die set onto the light blue card lining up the hole in the decorator die with the hole created by the tag die and ensuring that the die is even around the curve of the already cut die shape. Secure die in place using removable tape.

4. Score the dark blue card at 6 inches. Place the tag shape die onto the card as we did previously to the light blue card and secure in place using removable tape. Run both pieces through the die cutting machine.

5. On the remaining light blue card repeat the steps above to create the tag shape (using both the tag shape die and the decorator die, but not the pop up die.

6. Use a paper trimmer or craft knife and ruler to cut off the excess edge from creating the tag shape from all three pieces of card.

7. Fold up the pop up piece on the light blue card ... for this card we are only popping up the main piece not the smaller optional pop up panels. 

8. Adhere the light blue card into the dark blue card. Trim off any uneven edges and if necessary trim the bottom of the card so it is also even.

9. Adhere the smaller light blue card to the front of the card lining up the top of the card. Trim of any excess length so it is even with the fold of the card.

10. Die cut two the "eye" shaped hole decorate pieces and adhere these over the hole at the top of the card on the front and inside of the card.

11. Add some twine or cord through the hole of the top of the card.

12. Cut a piece of white card and a piece of Double Sided Adhesive Paper that are approx 3 inches x 3 1/2 inches. Remove the release sheet from one side of the adhesive paper and set it aside upside down on your desk (shiny side up). Adhere our Double Sided Adhesive sheet to the piece of white card.

13. From the Snowman in Frame Peel-Off Sticker Sheet remove the Snowman without the frame, the broom and ornament. Place your pieces sticky side up onto the release sheet that we set aside earlier.

14. Take your white card and place it with the adhesive side facing down onto the release sheet with the Peel-Offs on it. The Peel-Offs will lift from the release sheet and stick to the adhesive on the card stock.

15. Turn your card so the release sheet is now on top. Take off the release sheet and make sure not to touch the images on the adhesive.

16. Cover the adhesive with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and polish with your finger. You can see a video Els created using this technique here. Color your images as desired. 

17. Cut out the Snowman, broom and ornament. 

18. Cut another piece of  white card and double sided adhesive approx 2 inches x 5 inches. Adhere the  Double Sided Adhesive to the card. Use this to die cut the snow die from the Outdoor Edges die set. Remove the protective backing from the adhesive and add Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. 

19. Cut the glittered snow edge in half. Adhere one half to the pop up panel as per photo. Add snowman to the pop up panel over the snow. (Note - I adhered the snowman to the panel about half way up). Then add the other piece of snow so it is in front of the snowman. Trim any excess so it is even with the pop up panel. 

20. Decorate the snowman with the broom and ornament. I added twine to the ornament so I could hang it on the twig arm.

21. Using the snowflakes from the Circle Spiral Pull Card to die cut 7 snowflakes from white card which has been covered by Double Sided Adhesive Paper. Once die cut over each snowflake with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. 

22. Use the label die from the Lorna Label Pop Up die set to die cut the label from white card. Sponge edge with blue ink. Stamp sentiment with black ink and adhere label to lower panel of inside of card. 

23. Decorate the card with 5 of the snowflakes as per photo above. To the centre of each snowflake add a Transparent/Gold Glitter Dot.

24. Die cut 4 photo corners from the Tag Die set from dark blue card. Adhere one on either side to the lower corner on the inside of the card and the remaining two corners to the bottom edges on the outside.

25. Use the large label from the Katie Label Accordion Card die and die cut a label from white and two from dark blue card. Sponge edges with blue card. Stamp sentiment using black ink.

26. To create the dark blue layer around the label. Cut the two dark blue labels in half ... one lengthwise and the other widthwise. Trim off the corners so that each half looks like the half labels on the right in the photo above. Adhere the two long labels behind the white label so a small amount is showing and then adhere the remaining two short labels so they appear at the top and bottom of the label.

27. Cut a piece of dark blue card 5/8 inches by 3 1/2 inches and attach to the front of the card so it will be in the centre of the label when it is attached to the card. Trim off any excess from sides.

28. Attach label to card using foam tape.

29. Attach the last two snowflakes to the front of the card using foam tape.
