This morning I posted my video which shows how I made Dawn Griffith’s Pop Up Card.
When I first saw her video back in 2012, I added it to my Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts Playlist so I’d be able to go back to it easily!
I made my first one of these pop up cards for my granddaughter in January 2013! As you can see from photographs 6 – 7, apart from the ribbon and the cardstock, I didn’t use Stampin’ Up! products!
The first card in this design that I made, was the one with Crumb Cake as the base for the sleigh and the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP) as a layer under the Father Christmas and Reindeer images.
I liked the DSP as a layer because it looks a bit like lights around them.
I used Early Espresso Cardstock (CS) for the layer under the images sheet as well as the back layer for the sleigh.
I definitely prefer it for the sleigh but I’m definitely undecided about the layer behind the image!
At 54 minutes, this is my longest video – I think – but on this occasion, I didn’t choose a quick design.
Yesterday’s craft fair was very disappointing.
Our sales were good but nowhere near as good if we’d been in our usual spot!
I’m not sure what happened, but I was told the organiser had made a mistake which resulted in her having to re-arrange all the stalls.
Hubby and I just concentrated on making the best of a bad job, although it did make for a physically uncomfortable day.
This is the first time I’ve had this kind of problem, and hopefully, it won’t happen again.
If it does, I’ll have to have a serious rethink about doing the Gingham Goose Fair again!
Disappointing but I have to be practical.
There was also a lot of interest in my classes, too.
I think that’s about it for today.
I wish you all a happy Sunday.
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
