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.

Walking on Sunshine Shaker Card

Walking on Sunshine Shaker Card with Really Reasonable Ribbon and Photoplay Sweet Sunshine

Hello, Friends!  Summer is just a few days away, and this Walking on Sunshine Shaker Card is filled with summery goodness!   Today I want you to think juicy, sweet popsicles and pool parties and daisy chain necklaces and all the fun that summer has to offer.  Oh, and pink flamingos and flip flops, too. Because nothing says summer like a pink flamingo and flip flops!

Easy Peasy Summer Shaker Frame

It’s so easy to make this summery shaker frame that you can get it done and still have time for a patio party!  Here’s how:

  • First, locate the summer flowers frame from the Sweet Sunshine Ephemera pack. Cut a 4 1/4″ square of clear cardstock (acetate sheet) and attach it to the back side of the frame using 1/4″ Scor-Tape as your adhesive.
  • Now add 3 layers of 1/4″ foam tape to the back side of the frame.
  • Cut a 4 1/4″ square of hot pink plaid paper for the shaker window back panel.  Decorate it with stickers from the paper collection.
  • Place Fruit Cocktail Sprinkletz and some sequins and buttons inside your prepared frame, peel off the Scor-Tape Liner, and adhere the pink plaid paper over the tape.
  • Dress up your shaker window with a trio of pale peach Chrysanthemums, hot pink baker’s twine and 3/16″ orange gingham ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
  • Attach a flip flop and enamel pineapple charm to another piece of baker’s twine and adhere behind some citrusy orange buttons.
Surprise!  It’s a Pop-Up Card!

Build a cute summer scene on a pop up square inside the card to add even more fun to this card design.

You can even add a pocket and gift card holder that carries out the fun pink flamingo theme.

Add a blank sentiment panel inside the gift card wallet so  you have a place to write a cheery message.

And that’s how to usher in a whole bunch of fun summer card making, my friends!

Really Reasonable Ribbon June 2023 Blog Hop

Really Reasonable Ribbon June 2023 Blog Hop: Bright Summer Colors

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon June 2023 Blog Hop!  You should be coming here from Gloria’s lovely blog.  You can find the complete blog hop list over on the RRR Blog.

Our theme this month is Summer and/or Bright Summer Colors.  Summer is the perfect time to enjoy a treat from the freezer, so I created this cute popsicle themed Slimline Card using 1/2″ Checkered Ribbon with a Stitched  Edge.  This ribbon comes in several colors, and is a great choice for summer cards.

White Chrysanthemums are such a cheery addition to this summery card, and they provide a nice contrast to all the bold colors in the card design.  Amp up the playful feel by adding  some White Spiral Stamens and Bead/Berry Sprays to the flower clusters.

TIP: Create a colorful ribbon belly band behind the card title.  First, apply 1/2″ Scor-Tape across the center of the yellow die cut panel.  Leave the ends long so that when you attach the ribbon to the tape, you can wrap them around the back side of the panel.
