C4C-375 - 'Hello Hello' Pop-Up Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday so that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our March 2017 Hostess is Frances Byrne, and our Guest Designer is Birgit Norton. You can see Birgit's Blog HERE.  

Here is Frances' challenge: "According to the Days of the Year web site, Thursday 2nd March was World Book Day. For our challenge this week take your inspiration for making your card from a book ... adults or children’s book whatever you prefer."
So what is my book inspiration? Why the Stampin' Up Catalogue of course. Page 64. Ha! 

Ok - this owl. OMGoodness, I'm loving this little set by Taylored Expressions. It comes with an owl, pig, cow and dog dies. The dies cut the basic critter shapes with a little cut out heart. I backed the heart area with red card stock then filled the inside with a clear glaze pen. The set comes with some cute word stamps and face stamps for the critters. Fun!

Inside I made a Pop-Up scene, which was inspired by the catalogue. To make the Pop-Up bumps, I used the die from the Hot Air Balloon twice along the fold. That gave me enough support for the double layer of mountains!

The Stampin' Up Fox Builder Punch/stamp set was a Christmas gift from my parents so I used it here to make the racoon. Another fun set!

Below you can see the two Pop-Up bumps ...

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C375.
