Charisma DT Challenge





This is my card for the DT Challenge Carly has set for us over at Charisma this month - to make up a pop-up card. I've never done one before so enjoyed giving this a go. I've used SU card in the middle to make the pop-up section so the finished card is a bit thick, think I'll use a thinner card next time, but still pleased with the result and that the pop-up does in fact pop-up!

The image is another sneak peek of one of the new Nutshells stamps coming out soon, which I've coloured with ProMarkers and used a bit of Cosmic Shimmer paint on the snail's shell.

DSPs - Stampin' Up! Haiku
Cardstock - SU! Whisper White & Barely Banana
Sentiment - SU! Circle of Friendship
Flowers - cut with X-Cut punch & added some bling from stash.

The pop-out I've made on the CraftRobo, getting on really well with this now, and added a lady-bird from the same Nutshells set (don't tell anyone but I dropped an ink pad on the cut-out and needed it to cover the blob I left!! I'm such a messy crafter, it's really annoying!)

Lovely card, never had a go at one of these either. Know what you mean about messy crafter. I was colouring with a gold brilliant painter pen when a giant blob popped out and spread all over the pic grrrr! Unfortunately a little ladybird wouldn't ever cover the mess lol.
