Simply Swap It – March 2021

In March, our chosen technique was Pop-Up Cards. I chose the Congratulations category as my theme, and specifically congratulations on a new baby. As I tend to do, I agonized and over analyzed the whole process. I took instruction and inspiration for the mechanism of the pop-up from watching Jennifer McGuire videos on YouTube. She is definitely a wealth of knowledge.

I used Unity Stamp Company’s Criss Cross Hearts background stamp, and stamped it in VersaMark ink and used white embossing powder. I then used a soft green Distress Ink and ink blended over the heat embossed background.

Next I worked on my pop-up image. I used Unity Stamp Company’s New to the Crew set, stamping the onesie twice so that my pop-up would have a finished image on the front and the back. I stamped the “Bundle of Joy” sentiment from the kit on the front of the onesie and colored in the accent on the banding of the onesie for both sides.

Next I cut out an oval for the front of the card from Gina K Designs Master Layout 1 and stamped a congratulations sentiment from Gina K Designs Reasons to Celebrate.

And the final product turned out even better than I imagined!
