Floating Floor Pop Up Card
Posted on June 26 2018
Hello everyone! It's Jeannie and I'm loving that summer is here! One of my bucket list items has always been going on a safari, so I definitely have fallen in love with this Safari set.
This particular set has lots of images to use to create a picturesque scene. I stamped out all my images using Raven hybrid ink, which dries super fast so I can go ahead and color right away. Also, the corresponding dies for this stamp set make it super easy to get these cut out immediately.
For this card, I am using an A2 card base along with 3 pieces of A2 card panels. One of the card panels is used for the background of the scene, one will be used for the bottom of the card, and the last one will be used to create a floating floor so the images can pop up.
I wanted the monkey to hang from vines, so since the vines weren't a long image that can run across the background, I stamped out about three of them along the card and used a copic friendly marker to connect them. It worked so well!
Next, for the floating floor, I score the A2 panel at 3/8 on the left side (this will be glued to and then I score it 3/8 twice on the right hand side. I also mark of slots where I want the animals to be placed. I'll use an exacto knife to cut out these slots. I trimmed out quarter inch strips so the animals can be adhered to the strips so they pop up on the card.
Next, I'll score the strips at about a quarter of an inch from the bottom, and I'll add adhesive to it. Once you slip them through the slot, the strip is adhered to the bottom. I then take the images and add them to the strip above the floating floor, which will fold down flat.
To finish off this card, I stamp the Wild About You and the vines to decorate the area.
I hope you enjoyed this fun card and try it out. It's a really fun card to make! Have a great day!
