Happy Tuesday, All!
Yesterday I shared my CCC card along with everyone else's, but I saved the inside for today's post because it was a lit-tle bit different than your typical card interior.
They. Are. Awesome.
And as easy to use as the little Memory Box cloud dies I used on my card!
I had to use my flash on his picture, so I've lost a lot of the 3D shadows that really show off the "pop-out" aspect of this card. My apologies!
I N S T R U C T I O N S
- Cut a 4.25" x 5.5" blue card base and round corners.
- On card front, stamp image and sentiment, color clam, and set aside.
- Cut a Pop 'n' Cut base from matching blue cardstock, trim to 4" x 5.25", and round the corners. Repeat with sand-colored cardstock.
- Adhere blue PNC base to original card base.
- Stamp Chinese lantern image twice on vertical P'N'C base (the "sky") and on several scraps of colored paper or stamp on white with colored inks.
- Die cut clouds and adhere to sky. Draw lantern strings on top of clouds.
- Fussy cut lantern images from scraps, decorate/color with markers, color tops with silver leafing pen, and adhere over corresponding stamped images with dimensional tape.
- Cut the horizontal portion from the sand-colored PNC base and cut the bottom in a wavy line. Dry emboss and adhere on top of horizontal ("ground") blue base.
- Stamp sentiment on horizontal "sea."
- Sketch a hut onto a scrap of cardstock and cut out. Cut 1" x 11" strips of yellow cardstock and then cut .75" into the strips to make a fringe for the hut's straw-like covering. Snip into the ends on an angle to break up the uniformity - neatness is a no-no here.
- Cut strips to fit the hut's width and adhere to hut base. Start at the bottom and apply in layers. Adhere to horizontal pop-out center of PNC card base.
- Stamp palm tree, crab, bird and fish, color with Copic markers, and fussy cut. Apply Glossy Accents to bird's sunglasses and Stickles to fish. Set aside to dry.
- Adhere palm, crab and bird with dimensional adhesive; adhere fish with glue.

When you adhere an item to the 3D portion of the card, just use a little adhesive on its center before placing it face down on the "floor" of the card. Shut the card and apply a little pressure to the spot with adhesive. Open the card to see if it's where you want the adhered item. Adjust as needed, check again, and apply the rest of your adhesive once the popped image is where you want it.
Substitute supplies when you can. If you don't have the lantern chain image I used, maybe you have Lawn Fawn's Lunar Lights stamp set. If you don't have that set either, download some clip art or dry the images yourself. (If you can draw a rectangle, an oval, and a circle, you're go to go!)
