Lion Dance with Amy

Hi crafty friends! Amy here, and today I have a fun floating floor pop-up card to share with you featuring the Lion Dance stamp set. The card depicts a colorful and festive Lunar New Year celebration, with the Lion Dance.

Inside of the card

To begin, I colored the images from Lion Dance with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating Creative Cuts.

I made my card base by trimming Bristol paper to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored it at 4 1/4". To create the sky, I inked the front and the inside of the card base with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide.

Front of the card

I die-cut Bristol paper with the hill borders from Landscape Trio Creative Cuts to be used for the front and the inside of the card. I used Mowed Lawn Distress Ink and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide to ink blend the hill panels. I added splatters of water to the ink blended sky and the hill panels to add texture.

I die-cut gray and black cardstock with the Cityscape Creative Cuts. I adhered the Cityscape panel (for the gray one I have the back facing front) and one of the hill panels to the inside of the card. Then, I adhered the other hill panel to the card front.

To make the floating floor, I trimmed light gray cardstock to 5 1/2" x 4 1/2" and scored lines at 1/2",  3 1/2" and 4".  I trimmed 1 1/2" long and 1/4" wide strips and folded them to an L shape. I laid out the images as shown on the floating floor, and used a craft knife to make the slits a little wider than 1/4" wide right underneath the images.

I folded at the scored lines and adhered the floating floor as shown and inserted the L shaped strips into the slits (the bottom of the L gets taped to the card base). This allows the images to pop up when you open the card. Then, I adhered the images to the strip, trimming it if it was too long. At this point, I adhered the other images to the card front.

The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink on black cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. I adhered it to the front of the floating floor. That's all for today!
