Sizzix Pop Up Boat


I gave my Cricut Expression an airing today, and cut out this ship, the wave and anchor.  At first glance this looks like a very ordinary card, until you open it up. 


When you open the card, it reveals this surprise!  I stamped the sentiments from Starring You stamp set in Real Red, cut out the stars and raised one on dimensionals to give it more depth.
I attached a piece of wire to the "chimney" and adhered cotton wool to it with glue dots for the smoke and secured the anchor on the top deck with linen thread.


I used the 3/4" punch to partially punch the edges of the two strips of Tempting Turquoise to resemble waves.   I cut out a collar and hat for the Sailor.  The portholes were punched out with a 1/2" circle punch first, then centred the 3/4" punch on the aperture to create a circle frame, holes were pricked all round to resemble rivets using silver card stock (non SU), and 3/4" circles in Bordering Blue to mat circle frame on.

Keep watching this space - more samples coming - kept this simple as I was burning the proverbial midnight oil again.  My head didn't touch the pillow till half four this morning!
