Friends Fur-Ever

I’m in love with this adorable pop-up card!  It uses a new stamp set called We Must Celebrate (or as I like to call it the “Friends Fur-Ever” stamp set) from the just started Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalogue.  I got this sweet cards in a demonstrator card swap exchange.  We each made 20 of one type of card and then traded to get 20 new cards.  I love doing this because other demonstrators create things I wouldn’t have thought of.  I’ll be sharing all of these cards (including my own) on this blog at www.stampwithjenn.com.  There are lots of great ideas from both the Sale-a-bration and the Occasions Catalogues from Stampin’ Up!  This card was made by the talented Sophie Ouelett from Quebec.  On to more details about the card….

Card Details

All the supplies are listed at the bottom of this post and clicking on them will take you to the Stampin’ Up! store. Plus if you click on the “supply list” at the end of the post you can print a list of the supplies. Cool, eh?

It is a pop-up card.  This is done simply by folding the front of the card in half so that it will bend and then having an inside element (usually popped up with dimensionals) that holds the card in place so that it looks like this when opened.

There is a vellum window in the front of the card where the critters are poking out.  Both the window and the vellum were cut on the Big Shot with the square dies (listed below).

The critters are all on one stamp.  So you can stamp them and then cut them apart, like on this card.  And the critters are coloured with the new Stampin’ Blends alchohol markers.  And it might be hard to see in the pic, but the little bear’s nose has a tiny bit of Wink of Stella glitter on it…so cute!

Also notice on the vellum are the teeny tiny new epoxy shapes..they make a nice, subtle accent.

The background of the card, Bermuda Bay cardstock, has been embossed on the Big Shot with the new Scattered Sequins Embossing folder.  It really looks like sequins are in the cardstock.
One last item, I want to show you is that the sayings and the confetti pieces are all from the We Must Celebrate stamp set. See a picture of the stamp set below.
You can see more detail on the inside of the card here.

The pop up on this card takes it to  new level of cuteness and it would be a sweet birthday card for a special friend.
