Circle Pop-Up Card
Welcome back to Stamping with Buffy! Today, I want to showcase another Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog suite for you. I absolutely love the Come Sail Away Suite. It was one of the first things I ordered after Stampin’ Up!® Onstage in April. It’s perfect for so many occasions – and so many people.
How fun is this Circle Pop-Up Card? And it’s very easy to create. Here are the paper measurements:
4-1/4″ x 11″ Balmy Blue Cardstock; scored at 4-1/4″, 8″
4″ x 4″ Whisper White Cardstock
4-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock
4″ x 4″ Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper (DSP)
2-1/4″ x 4″ Come Sail Away DSP
Scrap Night of Navy Cardstock
First, score the 4-1/4″ x 11″ Balmy Blue Cardstock along the 11″ side at 4-1/4″ and 8-1/2″. Adhere the 2-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Come Sail Away DSP over the top (shorter) flap. Center the 2″ Circle Punch over the 4-1/4″ score line and punch.
Adhere the punched card stock/DSP circle to the bottom inside of the card, making sure to line it up so that it fits through the punched area when the card is folded.
Stamp the smaller sailboat from the Sailing Home Stamp Set on a 4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock using the Balmy Blue Classic Ink. Stamp the birds in Night of Navy Classic Ink.
On the 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock, stamp the larger sailboat in Night of Navy Classic Ink, and the smaller sailboat in Crumb Cake Classic Ink. Use a circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies to diecut a circle slightly smaller than 2″. Stamp the compass in Crumb Cake (stamp off one or two times first), then stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy Ink over the compass.
Die-cut the Night of Navy and Crumb Cake sailboats. Add the Night of Navy sailboat to the stamped 4″ x 4″ Whisper White Cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere the Whisper White Cardstock over the inside bottom panel, covering the punched circle.
On the outside of the card, adhere the 4″ x 4″ DSP to the bottom flap. Adhere the Crumb Cake sailboat nest the top so that it’s hidden when the top flap is closed. Adhere the stamped stitched circle over the DSP side of the 2″ circle. Diecut love from the Night of Navy Cardstock scrap using the Well Written Dies and adhere to the bottom of the outside flap.
Close the card and wrap the Night of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker’s Twine two times around the top flap. Tie in a knot, including an anchor from the Sail Away Trinkets.
That’s it! It’s really quite simple, although there is a bit of die-cutting. But don’t you love those two blue DSP patterns together on the front?
I got the idea for this card from Sharon Armstrong, another Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. She received a card using this technique from another demonstrator. Part of the fun of being a demonstrator is the inspiration we get from other demos. If you’d like to be part of this incredible network, it’s easy. Simply join my team.
