No automatic alt text available.

Welcome to the Ink It! Stamp It! Design Team Blog Hop - we hop every month so be sure to pop back and visit us again!  Today our theme is 3D - always a challenge for me!

You are currently at my page - Stephanie Fischer, The Crafty Thinker.  At the end of my post there is a full line of team members, please click on the name after mine in the list to continue the hop.

A simple exterior in Basic Gray and Crushed Curry

The front of the card is quite simple.  I used Smoky Slate Embossing Paste with the Pattern Party mask on Basic Gray card.  Then I simply added a few bits of ribbon, a bow and some Glitter Enamel Dots.

The inside of the card is another story altogether!

A double pop up card with traffic-laden streets!
 
The idea for this card came to me when I first saw the new Holiday Catalogue - specifically the Hometown Greetings edgelits.  However, since 3D is not in my comfort zone, I wanted to get started straight away.  So rather than wait until I could get those products, I used something I already had - the In The City stamp set.  I'll probably make another card with my original idea later.

I used Basic Gray cardstock for the roads and drew the lines with my Chalk Marker and a ruler.

I stamped two rows of buildings, coloured and fussy cut them in two strips.

I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the vehicles and attached them to the road with pieces of Window Sheet (attached to the back of the vehicle and under the road through a slit).

The side view gives a better idea of the dimension and the pop up mechanism

The base card is Basic Gray and the Double Pop Up mechanism is made with Soft Sky cardstock.  I added a strip of Emerald Green to hide the pop up mechanism.  I could have placed the first row of houses at that level but I wanted to maximise writing space.

    1. Thank you, Kim! That's probably my primary use for window sheet - although maybe I'll make a few more shaker cards for Christmas.

    1. Thanks, Kirsten. The fussy cutting isn't too bad (otherwise I wouldn't be doing it!) - the houses are all in a row, so just needs cutting around the roof line.
