I used the duck and nest from the first collection and the shell from the second collection to make this sliding pop-up card.
I’ve made sliding pop-up cards before, but this is the first time I made it in the horizontal or landscape orientation. Making it this way allows for a wider image, and that’s what I wanted for this l’il duck.
But I want to tell you a bit more about how I combined the various digis to make this image. First, I imported all the images into my Silhouette. Working with the duck first, I placed his feet where I wanted them, knowing I wanted them to peek over the top of the nest.
With the nest, I made two copies. On one, I erased the top pieces as I wanted to place it in front of the duck. The second nest, I placed behind the duck.
The final touch was to erase the bunny from under the egg-shell and then placed the shell on the little duck’s head. Here’s a closer look:
For the card, itself, I started by printing and cutting mats of digital patterned paper from the Adorableness Kit by Traci Reed. I matched it to Melon Mambo, Summer Sun and Garden Green card stocks for the mats and card base.
On the reverse, a simple congratulations on the birth of a daughter.
The beauty of this 3D card is that it closes flat for mailing. And here’s a look at that:
