Graphic 45 September Challenge - Pop-Up/3D


Hi everyone! Sorry I've been so absent lately - it seems like this summer has flown by. I've had a lot of different things going on and just haven't had a lot of any time to spend in the studio. I always plan to enter something into Graphic 45's challenges, but it seems like I always run out of time and never get something made. This month, I actually have something to share!

Recently, my friend Cyndi came up with the coolest idea for a pop-up tunnel card and taught our little group of crafty friends how to make it. I had just bought the Imagine paper collection and couldn't wait to dig into it for this card.

I mean....right?!? Unfortunately Cyndi's been really busy and hasn't had a chance to post a tutorial for this card. I am bugging her though, and hopefully she'll get one made up, because everyone needs to make this card. It's so much easier than it looks and you can keep it simple (no clue how to do that!) or go crazy with the embellishments (I am well-versed on that).

Here is a top view so you can see all of the layers. The windows are cut with graduated sizes of label dies. I believe these are by Spellbinders.

So many layers! I have always been so obsessed with tunnel cards/books...it's so much fun making little scenes.

This is such a fun card if you enjoy lots of fussy cutting. The Imagine collection has to be one of my all-time favorites from Graphic 45. There are so many great elements to cut out! It's hard to see, but even the house and tiny balloons on the very back of the card are 3D. This is truly one of those cards you have to see in person to really appreciate!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! You can find the supplies I used at Simon Says Stamp via the links below.
