Lucky Duck Pop Up Box with Bottom Window - InsideoutJeans (Jeannie)

September 13, 2017

Hello everyone! I had made this pop up box awhile back for fun and Gerda had asked me to make a tutorial because there were a lot of questions about how to go about doing it.
It's actually a pretty simple card, especially now since there are pop up box dies out there. I, however, did it the old fashioned way and made mine from scratch. It's actually bigger than the pop up box dies since those are A2 sized so it's a really good card for a special person.
It's quite hard to explain how I created it since there's a lot of steps, so I made a YouTube tutorial on the steps and all the measurements are listed at the end of this post.

Tutorial

The bottom window, which is the main feature, is one I cut out with an Xactoknife. Using acetate and a xyron sticker maker to adhere the images, it adds a special element to the card. The fish hang from the waves above and appear to be floating in the "aquarium". Don't you just love acetate?!
I hope you all enjoy this card! It's a really fun one. It has a lot of moving parts but if you pre-cut everything out first, and then assemble, it actually goes pretty quickly.

Smells like Christmas with Kaja

November 17, 2018

Hi there,
It's Kaja from Kajcyika crafts and today I have a sweet Christmas card for you! :)

Take a look:
I used a cute little mouse from Smell like Christmas stamp set and I stamped it out using Memento tuxido black ink. Then, I colored the image in using alcohol markers. I decided to use traditional Christmas colors so I colored his clothes in red and green.

Next, I used my scissors to cut out the...
