April Showers Pop-up Card [CFC #50]
Here's a fun birthday card for all those April birthdays ... something to keep them going just a little longer until sun and fun!
It's inspired by Casual Friday's challenge to create something with the theme April Showers Bring May Flowers and uses Papertrey Ink's Movers and Shakers: Sliders die to get the pop-up effect. Love that the umbrella ends up "covering" the flowers and card.
This is what the card looks like before you pull on the white circle tab. The letters I did with a souffle pen, which I love for being very intense and having a slight dimension to it. The umbrella I drew and then cut another one to use for a mask. Each section was cut apart for the mask, allowing me to stamp different designs on the umbrella. Outlined with the souffle pen. The umbrella handle is a toothpick that I rolled through the ink pad to color. A hole is punched on top of the umbrella for the pointy toothpick end to stick out.
Then you pull on the "MAY" tab and out come the flowers, literally! Another mask over the sentiment area so the lettering will stand out.
This was a fun card to do! Thanks for looking.
