Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a Slimline Pop-up card I created recently.

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

To create the slimline card I used the stitched rectangle die from LDRS Creative's Slim Line Scallop die set. 

To add the water to the card I used MFT Stamps Perfect Pool Water stencil, once you have applied ink through the stencil the first time, you turn the stencil 90 degrees and apply ink again, this is done 4 times to get the look of ripples in the water. 

I created the ocean bed, by diecutting Kraft cardstock using Lawn Fawn's Slimline Stitched Hillside Borders die set.

The shark is from MFT Stamps, I added the sentiment to the card which is also from MFT Stamps and stamped onto one of the speech bubbles from Whimsy Stamps' Comic Speech Bubbles die set.

The seaweed and fish are from Lawn Fawn's Build An Aquarium die set.

For the inside of the card I created a pop-up card using Karen Burniston's Pop 'N Swap die set. This pop up fits in a 4 inch card and my card is 3 1/2 inches wide, so I had to do some surgery on my pop-up to make it fit. After folding the pop up mechanism as per instructions, I then trimmed about 1/2 inch away from the diagonal fold on the right upper arm. I then used this as a tab to reassemble the pop-up and adhered it to my card.

On the front panel of the pop-up I added a panel which I decorated using the stencilled background I did on the front of the card. I added waves to the panel which are from Karen Burniston's Tropical Scenes die set.

 I forgot to add the sentiment before I added that to the mechanism, so I stamped this onto an oval using the Crosshatch - Ovals die set. The sentiment is from MFT Stamps Sharky Sentiments stamp set.

I added the shark to the top arm of the pop-up mechanism which is from Karen Burniston's Sea Animals die set. The fish on the bottom arm is from the Lawn Fawn Build An Aquarium die set.
