Wonder Rose Pop Up Box Card

Hello Everybody!

I am super excited to share this card with y'all!  I finally took the time to make a pop-art card.  So many folks have made them-very awesome ones at that!  It was Dr. Sonia who made one a couple of days ago and that is when I decided I finally had to give this a try!

Here it is.  And there is a story...probably too long a long but I will share it and try to condense it.  :)  We are going to a birthday party for a little friend of my son's.  They play superheroes together and her superhero name is Wonder Rose.  (How cute is that!)  Anyway, when I was at the Scrapbook Expo I saw this set of super hero stamps from Fun Stampers Journey.  Had. To. Have. Them.  :)  There are 2 girls and 2 boys.  When I saw the W I just knew I would make Wonder Rose a birthday card with it.  I did not realize at the time that it would be a Pop Up Box card. :)

Here is the outside.  I embossed the small panels and used light modeling paste and a Heidi Swapp stencil for the bottom.  

Here is the other side.  The long panel is for the message (brilliant!)

Here is Wonder Rose.  The stars are from a little star punch that I have had forever.  Some of the stars are pop dotted and other are glued together to create the lines of stars on either side.  I love it when things I have forever get used.  I think it validates why I keep everything...but that is for a different day.  ;)  So WR is standing in front of a city sky line that I made with stamps from Close to My Heart.  I heat embossed them with silver powder and fussy cut them out.  I even pop dotted one.  I colored her with Copics and a Distress marker (for her hair).

Now let me tell you about these panels.  There is a company called Sparkle N Sprinkle.  They make a sticky sheet and an ultra fine soft glitter called cloud nine.  I put the double sided sticky sheet to a piece of white cardstock.  Trimmed it to fit the square.  Peel off the other side and applied the glitter.  Then I stamped on it with Rangers Archival ink.  That's it beside gluing it down.  This picture doesn't even do it justice.  It's so cool!

The top and bottom stamp are from the Superheroes set by Fun Stampers Journey.

I am linking this "super" card to the following challenges:

Sparkle N Sprinkle--Anything Goes with Loose Glitter and Embossing (and flocking but I didn't do that)

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Challenge M-Mixed Media card (light modeling paste/stencil, heat embossing, coloring with markers)

Love To Create Challenge: Challenge 115 Friendship (this is for my son's friend)

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...who is going to save the day? ;)

Hi, Katy! Such a wonderful card! I have not made a pop-up box explosion card like this yet, and yours is really great! Love those stars, and the happy super hero! I cannot get over all that fussy cutting - lots of work! Thank you for visiting my blog today. I am your newest google follower!

Now to put on my other hat. Thank you for joining us at Sparkle N Sprinkle this month! I hope you will submit more of your pretty cards to the challenge in the future! I know you said in your blog post (where the challenges are listed) that you did not use flocking, but that is ok - just one of those items is perfect! hugs, Donna {Creative Smiles}
