Sip Sip Hooray

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have a pop-up card to share with you today. Earlier in the month Karen Burniston shared a tutorial on how to create a "Box of Chocolates Pop-up" card using the Rockin' Rectangles Pop-up die set. As this was such a fun way to use this die set I had to have a little play. You can find Karen's tutorial here.

I love the use of Acetate on the front of the card so you can see the main panel when the card is closed and something else is revealed when you open the card. I am sure I will be making more of this style of card in the future. I didn't have any thick acetate, so for this card I used some acetate from some packaging I had saved. 

For the patterned background I used Concord & 9th's Faceted Turnabout Stencil and Altenew ink pads. I love how easy it is to create multi colored backgrounds with this stencil.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

The "Sip Sip Hooray Sentiment Panel hides the glasses of wine and Cheers sentiment when the card is closed. But all is revealed once you open the card.

I didn't want to make a box of anything, but I still thought it would work for something not a box. I decided to pull out a couple of dies from MFT Stamps with a wine theme. 

I  used just the letters from the Sip Sip Hooray sentiment die-namics which in this case are the negative part of the die, as the die was slightly too small to work on the rectangle panel included in the Rockin' Rectangle Pop-up die set. I die cut this 3 times to give some height to the letters. True Red Silk Microfine Glitter was added to the letters for the top layers.

The wine glasses were die cut using white shimmer cardstock and I also die cut the wine part of the die using the same red glitter I used for the letters.

I added the "Cheers" sentiment across the wine glasses.

For the left hand side of the card I added a border using Karen Burniston's Border Blends - Argyle die set. I added Black/Silver Glitter Dots Peel Off Stickers in each of the diamonds of the border.
