Big Hugs - Pivot Pop Up Card

Interactive cards take more time to create, but the results are almost always definitely worth the effort..I wanted to try making a pivot pop up card but make it simple rather than adding too many elements to it and make it over the top time consuming kind...well, it can be done....and here's is my card..

Firstly, I ink blended the front panel as well as the inside of the card base using Distress Oxide inks...I have used squeezed lemonade, spiced marmalade, candied apple and black soot shades here...I also splattered a lot of water on both these blended backgrounds...

I started with the front panel by adding the stitched trails on it and then added a die cut oval frame...I adhered a hilly edge at the base of this oval for the elephant to stand on and then adhered this frame to the panel...I added the large scripty stamped and die cut sentiment below it...I adhered a couple of clouds as well and embellished this panel with tiny star sequins before adhering it to the card base..

Next, I die cut the pivot pop up mechanism and adhered it to the inside of my card...the base of this mechanism is die cut from white cardstock and the yellow pop up panel from Lawn Fawn really rainbow paper pack...I also added a the hilly edge at the base for all the animals to sit on..

On a separate piece of white card stock, I stamped and coloured in all the images I required for my card...I then cut them out by hand and placed them on my card...I added some die cut trees at the base and a party banner at the top..I also added a party hat for each of the animals...finally, I stamped the sentiments and a couple of hashtag stamps and the inside of my card was ready as well...
