Setsuna Holiday Pop Up Stage Card

This Pop Up Stage was so much fun to make. I had been waiting for the opportunity to do this card. For the full video tutorial on how to make this card by Kim Score, visit the Splitcoast Stampers Resources or Kim's blog. Kim's instructions are clear and easy to follow. The sleigh (used in the card outside and inside) is from a newly released cut file called Santa's Visit - you are just gonna love this cut file collection!!! As I have soooo much paper in my stash, I found this one from one of those SU sale-a-bration events a couple years ago that worked out well for this card. The pattern is small enough to be a background in the card front and also part of the inside sleigh.

Stardust Stickles added to the red section of the sleigh. Sleigh is popped with dimensionals. These trees are using the Cricut Cartridge Christmas/Noel cut at 4" (doesn't look like 4" - huh?). The sleigh is cut at 3" x 2" and only 2 layers were used.......the twine is from Pineapple Cove and puts the finishing touches on this card. Note: this twine has a thicker red showing than most twine.

Slowly open this card..........................

revealing a multi layer pop up stage.....................inside trees are cut using the Cricut Cartridge Christmas/Noel cut at 5" and " 6", adhere to the SU Bashful Blue CS. Dots of Stardust Stickles sparkle in the "sky".

Here's the side showing the various layers and the tabs underneath the stage........clear acetate was used as the pop up mechanism instead of cardstock.

Copic colors used:
Face: R20, E21, E00
Boots and Belt: W5
Hair: W10
Hat Brim, Ball, and Beard: W1
Clothes: R59, R35, R46 And, add a little Gold Smooch, too. After coloring, add Stardust Stickles to the brim of his hat, ball in hat, and beard.

Here is a view of setsuna at the "snow" level".............torn paper added for the snow (caps are dusted with Stardust Stickles)

And here is that beautiful loving all the layers and detail swirls. This SVG cut file was resized and cut at 4-1/2" x 3". The original size of this sleigh was meant to be a box party favor (soon to be posted for your enjoyment, too)
