You're Going To Be Great Parents!

Hello again! Oh my goodness this was such a fun card to make. I can't wait to give it to just the right couple. The kangaroos for this card are from the Kanga-rrific stamp collection. I also used the Kanga-riffic Add On and the Kanga-riffic Baby Sentiment Add On. I really love the "You're Going to Be Great Parents" sentiment. Thanks Lawn Fawn for another great stamp collection.

I decided to do a Peekaboo Pop Up card since it had been almost a year since I had made one and I am really happy with the way it turned out. As I was watching Lawn Fawn's YouTube tutorial on the assembly of this card, I was inspired by Megan Quinn's card with the tree top, so I replicated it in mine.

I used the new Algae cardstock along with the Noble Fir cardstock to create my tree tops using the Puffy Cloud Borders die. To cut those, I first cut them with the Peekaboo Pop Up making sure that the side that embosses the fold lines is on the right hand side because you will need them on that side to do your accordion fold. I measured an 1.25" inch down from the top to place my Puffy Cloud Border. die. It can't be too deep because you will need to have room for your kangaroo to move when he pops up. The Noble Fir layer is about .75" from the top. Once you have those cut you can glue them together and then fold them on the embossed lines so that the fold goes to the inside of the card.

For the panel that covers the popping mechanism at the very front of the card needs to be cut with the embossed lines of the main die to the right also. It also needs to be accordion folded the same as the tree canopy. I cut that from a piece of white card stock approximately 2 inches up from the bottom on the left hand side. I used the hillside die that is included in the Peekaboo Pop Up set. I used Tea Dye Distress Oxide Ink to color the base of that piece, touching up the top with a little bit of Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink. This piece is folded on the embossed lines the same way as the tree canopy - with the fold going into the center of the card.

For the background of this card, I have cut it from white cardstock making sure that my embossed lines are to the left side of the cut out. Using the Hillside Stencil along with the Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink, I have placed a hillside for part of the background. I also speckled both the background and the foreground piece with watered down Vintage Photo. I used Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide Ink and the Slimline Cloudy Stencil to ink the sky. I used that stencil because the Peekaboo Pop Up piece is just a smidge larger than the regular Cloudy Stencil and I didn't want to be real careful on the ends because they could end to abruptly - if that make sense. I speckled the sky with watered down Uncharted Mariner ink. This card is folded on the embossed lines so that the first fold from the left is pointed to the center of the card.

I used the sentiments from the Kanga-riffic Baby Sentiment Add On. I heat embossed it using white embossing powder.

I used the pop up piece that will keep the popping image closest to the accordion fold on the left hand side. You will need to choose which one will suit your card best based on where you are placing your other pieces to build your scene. I would definitely recommend using adhesive tape for this piece because you may need to re-locate it several times to get it just where you need it to be. Once you have that placed, glue your layers together to form a kind of shadow box. I have a YouTube vide below or you can follow the Lawn Fawn tutorial.

I used Copic markers in the following colors to color the little elements.

Tree Tops:

YG03, YG23, YG25

Grass Tufts:

G25, G46


E42, E43, E47

Tree Trunks:

E35, E37

Kookaburra and Baby Bottle:

Y00, Y02


BV0000, BV01

I am crazy about everything on this card and I hope you enjoy it also! Thanks for stopping by the blog today and I hope that you have a Kaga-riffic Day!!!!!
