Singing Snowman Pop Card

Hello Ai fans!

Today is the release of Ai's five newest Pop Cards.  These really take pop cards to a new level!  I'm using the Singing Snowman Popcard 4943 stamp set.  It comes with the stamps and dies to cut out the everything but the Popcard Template 4862.  Remember to get the popcard template if you haven't bought one in the past. You will need it for the card to work.

I used a die cut from Crafter's Companion to frame the circular window.  It's from the Downtown Abby collection called Ornate Circle Frame.  I used a Lifestyle Crafts die called Label to frame the greeting that is stamped with Onyx Black Versafine Ink.  I edged the label with Weathered Wood Distress Ink and a round foam inker. All of the papers are from a collection I got at Michael's last year. It's from Craft Smart and is called Crystal Frost. I edged the layers with a Pilot medium point silver marker.

 It is not difficult to assemble the card.  Just follow the simple directions provided here on last weeks blog post by Sharon.  She walks you through how to put together the mansion card, but it is similar to put together all five of the new designs. 

The images are stamped onto Strathmore 140 Lb.watercolor paper with a Jet Black Archival ink pad. They are colored with a combination of Marvy LePlume II and Tombo Dual Brush Markers using a #4 paint brush.  
Marvy Le Plume's used Pine Green 72, Persimmon 89, and Black 1.
Tombow's used Sea Blue 373, Pink Rose 703, Brown 879 and Pale Cherry 912.

This is what the side of the image looks like when the card is completely open.  I also added in one of the birds above the front opening. 

Be sure to join the Third Dimension Challenge for your chance to win prizes!

Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Day!
