Graphic 45 Pop-Up



 Today I have created another pop-up card.  This time I have used the Sizzix "Zig Zig " Pop-up die, Graphic 45 stamps and Marianne Designs dies.  We are having overcast weather and it was really hard to get a good clear picture of this card.



For the inside I stamped the background with some new Graphic 45 stamps and antiqued it with Tea Die Distress Ink.  The bottom section has a piece of design paper from the Graphic 45 "Christmas Emporium" paper pad.  The pop-up was die cut and distressed with "Tea Dye" ink.  The two girls were stamped and lightly colored then sponged over to also give them the "aged" look.  They were attached to the left tab of the pop-up with ScorTape.  Two Marianne trees (LR0136) were die cut, sponged, and attached to each other with a glue dot then attached to the right tag of the pop-up.  I wanted the Graphic 45 sentiment to also be a pop-up so created a little tab I could glue to the bottom of the card and the back of the sentiment.  It folds down flat when the card is closed.  In order to include a personal note and signature, I die cut the Marianne (LR0117) rectangle doily on the bottom panel.  It was also distressed.  The poinsettia up on the left side corner was created with the Marianne Poinsettia dies (LR0142) dies. 

This is the front of this pop-up card.  I used a piece of old Christmas design paper from last year for the background.  The gold embossed stocking is from one of the new Graphic 45 stamps sets.  You can see all the images in these new sets at Joan's Gardens.  The image was cut out with a Spellbinders Labels 8 Nestability die.  A Spellbinders accent was added to the top and bottom of the Label 8.  Another Marianne Design poinsettia was created out of burgundy card stock.  The flourish is one of the Marianne Decorative Flourishes (LR0157).  It was cut in half and tucked under the poinsettia.  The border across the middle was created with a Martha Stewart border punch.

Have you been over to Joan's Gardens today to see all the new products added?  You will find the new Graphic 45 stamps and paper, Tim Holtz stamps, Marianne dies and new paper pads I think you will really like.
