Party Animals with Nichol

Hello friends! Nichol here today with a pop up birthday card featuring the amazing new Party Animals Stamp Set and coordinating dies. These cute bunnies and chicks are celebrating a birthday in the clouds and the party continues on inside the card with a pop up scene and additional stamped greetings! I love creating cards that tell a story from the front all the way to the inside!


I stamped the Party Animal images on smooth white cardstock using black ink and colored in the images with Copic Markers. Be sure to color a few more images for the inside of the card too! Once the images were all colored, I die cut them with the coordinating Party Animals Dies. Detail was added to the eyes with a black glaze pen and Glossy Accents was added to the noses.
For the background, I trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and applied Dried Marigold and Spun Sugar Distress Inks. Once blended, I spritzed the piece with water from a Distress Sprayer and then blotted dry with a paper towel. A greeting from the Surprise Sentiments Stamp Set was stamped in the upper left corner with black ink. The word, "birthday" was colored with Copic Markers and finished with Glossy Accents. Borders were die cut from smooth white cardstock and vellum using a Landscape Trio Die. The borders were layered along the bottom edge and the rest of the scene was assembled as shown. Nuvo Crystal Drops complete the front of the card.


For the inside, I trimmed a panel slightly more narrow than the card base. The top edge was die cut with a Landscape Trio Die. Additional greetings from the Surprise Sentiments Stamp Set were stamped on the inside panel. Two Pop Up Trio dies were used along the seam of the card.
I used the Dried Marigold and Spun Sugar Distress Inks to the inside upper panel to match the front of the card. The inside panel was secured to the inside of the card and additional images were adhered to the pop ups and to the background scene.
