Lauren's Sliding Pop-Up Card!

Hello, I loved making the sliding pop-up card so much that I had to make another! This is for my Niece Lauren, she turned 10 on February 13th, and we are having our family Birthday Celebration for her this weekend!

Lauren loves to play school, so I used that as a theme for my card! You can find a picture and video tutorial here that shows how to make the sliding pop-up card!

My card base is real red. For the pop up background, I started with a piece of heavy white cardstock & then created the scene. I used a set from cdstamps.com called Little Learners (5842) and stamped the books along the bottom. I coloured them with copics and then stamped in the subject, which also comes in this set. I wanted it to look like a book shelf below the chalk board, so I added 1/8" strips of creamy caramel that are lightly sponged.

The chalk board frame is also creamy caramel, stamped with the wood grain background stamp, and then edges sponged with creamy caramel & close to cocoa. Then I attached it to black cardstock & glued the whole thing onto my pop-up background. I used some stamps for the words on the blackboard, stamped in craft white & I also wrote in her birthdate and name with a white pen.

Schoolgirl Sophie is from Riley and Company. I stamped her onto white with memento tuxedo black & coloured with copics.

I used acetate for the pop up mechanism so you can still see the background.

For the front slide out part, I wasn't sure what to put since the chalk board already says Happy Birthday! So I went with the best wishes sentiment from the Everyday Sayings set. The X's & O's along the edge are from a MS Valentine set from a couple years back!

Have a Great Day!
Laurie
