All of the images were colored with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. I love that she used the slimline card in its portrait orientation so that she can arrange her scene in a tiered manner!
She die cut two slimline panels, and one of which had two windows for her shaker element. I love the beautifully blended turquoise tones on her card panels. Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Ink was used on the back panel and Peacock Feather on the top panel.
I love the adorable seal on the ice berg floating at the very top with its thumbs up! As you look further down, you will see a bunch of adorable sea creatures including some tiny fishes, cuttle fishes and even a jelly fish!
Other accessory images like the seaweed, coral reefs and sea shell, just make the scene so much fuller and cuter!
To finish off, she added white gel pen highlights. Thank you Anja for this fun and awesome creation!
She started with a pop-up shadow box die from Lawn Fawn as the basic structure of this box. She added some yellow patterned papers to the faces of the box as accents. I love how she removed the front flap, cut a panel at the front of the box and added a piece of acetate as the window.
I love how she positioned the cute images at different depths; some were just behind the window, while some were adhered at the very back. The kitty blowfish near the centre portion was the focal point and she choice a sentiment “You Blow Meow Away!” – so cute!
She also added a piece of wavy cardstock in front of the blowfish as if it was just swimming to the surface! The whole card came together so nicely!
We hope you enjoy Anja‘s pop-up box card! Thank so much Anja, your card is so amazing!
While masking-off her colored images on the card, her background was beautifully ink blended using Chipped Sapphire, Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. She splattered water over the panel to create some nice texture.
Laura made her own pull tab and rotating mechanism, so that the blow fish would move up and down, while the seal’s arm would lift up at the same time with its thumbs up! Such a clever design!!
See how she put together this interactive card in detail by watching her video tutorial over on our YouTube Channel!
Thank you so much Laura for your out of the world inspiration! Double thumbs up!
