Snowman Couple

It's time for a new challenge over at The Crafty Pad and this week Joanie has chosen the theme - Interactive - we want you to make a project that moves, it could be a pop up, waterfall, spinner anything you like as long as it moves.

This was a real challenge for me and I have to admit I quite enjoyed it.  Here is my card:

It looks just the same as normal from the front, but open it up and ....

it's a pop up card.  I used the fab Crafty Pad image - Snowman Couple.  I printed the image twice and coloured it with a combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.  I used the largest snowman on his own for the front of my card and then used the couple for the pop up on the inside of my card.  The snowy background was made by tearing some card and using stickles on the edges.


Papers:  My Mind's Eye - Snowed In (free with Cardmaking and Papercraft)
Card Stock;  Core'dinations
Tools:  Spellbinders - Scalloped Circle, Standard Circle, Labels Eighteen
Marianne CreaTables - LR0205
Embellishments:  Snowflakes, Ice Stickles from stash
Sentiment:  recycled from an old Christmas card

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Creative Belli Challenge 148 - Christmas in July (snowflakes, papers and sentiment from last year)
Stampavie and More Challenge 172 - Christmas in Summer
I Love ProMarkers Challenge 126 - Sparkle
