Yes, Deer, it's a Pop-up Card!

A month or so back I bought a beautiful Woodware stamp set of reindeer and backgrounds, fell in love with it but couldn't think how or what to make. I was in the shop where I bought them earlier this week, Made By You, and the owner showed me a series of three gorgeous and different cards that she made with them, for a class. I never seem to be available for a class on the days they are being taught, but Pat very kindly let me tag onto another stamping class today and play with the reindeer!

This is all stamped and sponged with Distress Ink in Soot and Weathered Wood, so I'm entering it for Charisma Card's Challenge this week, It's so Distressing

Torn paper was used to shape the hills which were added using ink on Cut & Dry foam. The moon, trees, fence, grass and deer silhouettes are all from the same set, as are the reindeer embossed in white on black card. The reindeer are cut out and attached with foam pads. A Christmas sentiment is stamped and matted onto the pop-up and I've stamped black scrolls around the main card. Here's a detail of the pop-up:

Now I've made this card I can see how simple pop-up cards can be, but this was something I've put off doing - until now. The pop-up was easy, the most time consuming part was cutting out round those antlers! Please forgive the pun but I can see this card style popping up a lot on my blog in the near future :).


  1. This is so very elegant and wonderful!

  2. Oh wow Anne, my sort of card. I love this. Those reindeers are beautiful and I love the way they pop up. I've studied it hard to see how you've made it, might have to try this out for myself. The black and white works so well, very elegant.
    Have a great weekend.
