For The Cutting Cafe design team post, we were asked to use the Assorted Pop Up Cards…and any other cut file we wanted to use. Wow, that was such a difficult decision! I mean, have you seen how many awesome files Regina has in the store?? After much deliberation, I decided to use the It’s Bowling Time Template and Printable Stamp Set. This set is chock full…if you’re planning a bowling birthday party, you definitely need to check this out! But now to my card:
The card is smaller, 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″; so I decided to extend the pieces beyond and above the edges of the front. The finished size is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, the standard A2. The pins were placed “at the end of the bowling lane”. Once I got them as I wanted them, I converted the cut lines on each to print only; then I traced around the outside. I cut the bowling ball once with the holes, in black, and once in gray without the holes. I attached it on the card with an Action Wobble Spring. The background is free clip art I found on the Internet.
But here’s where all the action is:
I shrunk the pins and bowling ball down and the yellow star. More of the same background for the bottom and the sentiment on the back. Looks like a strike to me! What do you think? Here’s a closer look:
And here’s a peek from the side so you can see the pop up mechanism:
So that wraps it up for my card, but if you’d like to see what the rest of the design team has come up with, just click here!
