Santa’s Workshop 3D Pop-up Card – Mama Elephant

November 27, 2018
Hello crafty friends!  As most of you know, I love creating cards with dimension and lots of color.  I really enjoy creating cards with a scene, so making this festive little Pop-up Card featuring some of the adorable Little Agenda Stamps from Mama Elephant was so much fun!  I also included a short video clip at the bottom of this post to show how this card folds perfectly to be able to fit into an A2 sized envelope.
To start, I first created my background by blending some Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, and Blueprint Sketch).  I splattered this panel with some Opaque White Paint to resemble snow.  All of my images were stamped with Copic friendly Black Ink, colored with Copics and cut with their coordinating dies.
I added some snowy mountains in the background of my scene using the Snow Capped Mountains Creative Cuts.  I also added some pop-up snowy hills using the Landscape Trio Creative Cuts and gluing some tabs onto the back of each hill in order for them to pop up when the card is opened.  I also added some snowy white trees from the On The Hills Creative Cuts.
In order to create the floating floor, you can check out the dimensions that I used from and earlier post of mine HERE.  Instead of cutting holes in the floor prior to attaching, I used a small sharp blade to cut them after my floor was attached since there were so many pieces and I wanted to have a better view as to where things would go as I worked.
I combined images from these stamp sets:
Santa’s Sleigh (inside sentiment)
Scripty XMAS (outside sentiment)
I just love all of these sweet little illustrations!  They pair perfectly with one another to create a fun Christmas scene.

Here’s a view of the outside of the card.  Because I have a lot going on inside of the card, I kept it rather simple with just a decorative belly-band to hold it shut.

Here’s a short video (above) on how the card works in action.

I hope you enjoyed my card today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  If you liked this card and want some more crafty inspiration, don’t forget to check out my INSTAGRAM feed!
