One of my customers at the beauty shop I work at requested a pop up card with the movie “Frozen” as the theme. I knew I would have to use both dies and my Silhouette to accomplish this. By now, I guess you’ve figured out that Elizabeth Craft Designs is my favorite company for most of my wafer thin dies. But they, don’t have “Frozen” dies as anything “Frozen” is proprietary. I saw this file that is actually a one piece silhouette of each of the Princesses. The file is actually called “Scandinavian Princesses”. I cut them with white Soft Finish Cardstock from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Next, I lightly penciled in where I felt the hair, dresses, and facial features would be and then colored them with Copic markers. I think they made great “Elsa” and “Anna” figures.
“Olaf” is also a Silhouette file apply named “Snowman”. I had to trim him up a bit to more closely look like “Olaf”. His teeth and the sticks on his head are just the negative pieces from some of the die cuts. Tip: Don’t throw away the left over negative pieces until you finish your project. You never know until you’re done if some of that “trash” could be useful.
As always, I begin with Elizabeth Craft Designs “Lots of Pops” die set pictured below:
I love this die set because it gives you the structure to build out your little scenes. You actually have four levels counting the back to create a scene. Below is a side view of the levels or pops.
I cut the snowflakes and trees from Elizabeth Craft Designs: All Seasons Tree, 5 Part Pine Tree, and Snowflakes.
The 5 part pine tree and snowflake die sets are two different products. I just have them both in the same binder sleeve. Below is a picture of all the elements cut out and glittered.
I believe the best way to get a perfectly glittered piece is to first apply your card stock to Clear Double sided adhesive then die cut your image with the die placed on the adhesive side. I use Elizabeth Craft Designs Clear double sided adhesive. It comes in a multitude of sizes. These dies will cut through both the adhesive backing and the cardstock. Next, peel off the adhesive backing and sprinkle your glitter over the adhesive side of you piece and shake off the excess glitter. Here is a great video showing this technique: https://youtu.be/hwgRz_JQckM?list=PLCP2iiaN5icAjqVxB14x0rFTIHStmJvEq
The sentiment inside I created using first my computer to create the sentiment. This one is a quote from the movie “Frozen”. I printed it out and then cut it out using a nested oval set by Spellbinders. Next, I cut out a frame for the sentiment using Elizabeth Craft Designs “1112-Fitted Frames 4-Curvy Ovals”.
I colored one of the frames with a Copic marker. I added ECD glitter dots to the larger oval frame. I added a large glittered snowflake.
The front of the card was created using ECD “Outdoor Edges” and cut from glittered cardstock purchased at Joanne Fabrics and Crafts.
I used the ECD “A way with words” “Happy Birthday” and the same glitter technique in the video above. The sentiment was created in my computer. I also added a few more of the small snowflakes that come with the “All Seasons Tree”. The designer paper that is light blue with glitter dots of snow is from Joanne Fabric and Crafts.
So happy you stopped by for a look and hope you will try making some Pop Up scenes of your own. You might want to take a look at my blog entry called “A Zoo Pop Up for my Grand Nephew”. This entry has step by step instructions on how to create these scenes using the “Lots of Pops” die set.
