Sail Away Shaker Pop Up Card

Photoplay Sweet Sunshine-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

Sail Away Shaker Pop Up Card with Really Reasonable Ribbon and Photoplay Sweet Sunshine

Hello, Friends!  Here’s a super fun to make Sail Away Shaker Pop Up card to get your crafty mojo flowing!  I’ve paired up Glory Blue Seam Binding and Airmail Baker’s Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon with some nautical patterns and images from Photoplay Paper’s Sweet Sunshine Paper Collection.  I’m really enjoying working with these summery papers!

How to make the Shaker Window

This pop up window is very easy to make thanks to the Mini Slim Build a Window Dies from Photoplay Paper.  Here’s how I did it:

  • First, cover a Maker’s Series Pop-Up Card Base with a 3 3/8″ x 6 1/4″ panel of the blue wave print from Sweet Sunshine.
  • Next, mat a 3 1/4″ x 6 1/8″ panel of the beach fun pattern over the blue.
  • Now cut a 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ square of the light blue waves and adhere in the center of the card front.
  • Locate the 2 3/4″ x 3 1/8″ rectangle die and the oval die from the Build a Window Die. Leave the oval die attached to the die frame, but remove the tag die that’s in the center.
  • Now die cut the dark blue wave pattern.  This will create the shaker window. Cut acetate to cover the back and add 3 layers of 1/8″ foam tape.
  • Adhere the sailboat sticker in the center of the light blue waves. Then add your shaker mix and place the frame over the image.

Glory Blue Seam Binding Ribbon is the perfect shade for this project!  Die cut the tag from white cardstock, stamp it with a sentiment stamp (linked below) and tie it to the frame with Airmail Baker’s Twine.

Easy Peasy Pop Up Card

Do pop up cards make your palms sweat?  Then try out the Photoplay Maker’s Series Pop Up card base.  It makes this cute pop up mechanism in no time flat!  Just add some more stamped sentiments and a handy gift card pocket and your work is done.

This sweet tag is the perfect addition to blank sentiment card and gift card pocket.  The final touch is adding a couple of sweet seagulls from Reneabouquets.  (They are really doves…but if you don’t tell, I won’t either!)

That’s another fun summer card in the card bank, my friends!  You can find a linked supply list below this post.

Heartfelt Creations July Alumni Blog Hop: Nautical Rose Tutorial & Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the July 2016 Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop!  I’m the first stop on the hop this month.  From here you will go to Vicki’s lovely blog.  Today I’m sharing a Nautical Rose Tutorial using the Botanical Rose stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations.  I’ve paired it up with gorgeous satin ribbon and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

NOTE: I Ink the edges of all cut papers with Tea Dye and Iced Spruce, Tea Dye and Bundled Sage Distress Inks.

Create a 4.75″ x 5.75″ card base from Soft Sky Cardstock.

Cut 2 sets of Everyday Hero Die, one from ivory paper, one from designer paper.  Cut in half.  Back the designer paper with the ivory paper to create a shadow, as seen in photo.

Trim the anchor journal card.  Stitch onto ivory burlap, then mat on brown cardstock. Snip the swirls on the Everyday Hero Die so that they can be slipped over the edge of the mat. Glue in place. Attach to card with foam dimensionals.
