I saw this technique on You Tube and just had to play with it right away!
The base is Rich Razzlebery. The balloon stamp is from a retired SAB set. REMEMBER, you can use something in your own stash! I know that I will be creating more of these with different sets!
Using Whisper White, stamp your image all over. I actually tapped lightly on the ink pads, Marina Mist, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, and Tempting Turquoise, to give the solid image more definition.
Then choose your cut out shape, oval framelits were used on this one. Choose the two that will give you the width of the pop up that you prefer. Position the two dies and run through the Big Shot.
Attach the largest piece to the card base, then position the "pieces" back like a puzzle. Attach the smallest piece to the base. Now pull off the "frame" and attach dimensionals or dimensional tape to the back. HINT: when using the tape, pull papers off both sides to make it easier to place around a curve. Now place the frame in position.
The sentiment is from the set Sprinkles of Life. Here is a hint for creating accurate layered cuts with a punch.
Cut and stamp the strips that you want to use, leaving a bit of length on both. Position the top piece in the center but over as far as you want to show at both ends. Attach the pieces with a bit of temporary adhesive like the liquid glue. Using your punch, I used the Banner Triple punch, slip the piece into the punch and punch the end. This will look like the above with the two pieces punched together.
Then pull them apart and realign for the flag.
I lined mine up on the card so that the white left edge lined up with the white balloon mat and attached it with dimensionals.
Have fun with this technique using different shapes to cut out and in different areas of the card! I want to do a Fourth of July card with the stars OR , hey, how about a graduation card???? The ideas are endless!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
