Pop it Ups Card Class (Scrapp'n Savvy version)

Sketch style Garden Bench/Poppy card

Recently I saw a piece of ceramic art by Katharine Morling and I was blown away by the look of her pieces, which incorporate black line art onto 3D sculpted everyday shapes.

It inspired me to try this look with my dies to create a pop-up card. All you'll need to replicate this look are some dies, white cardstock and a black pen.

I started with an A2 card but discovered after adding Poppy to the bench that I needed some extra height to the card to hide Poppy in the closed position. I solved the problem with some clouds placed at the top to become a decorative edge/Poppy hider.


It's really quite fun to cut absolutely everything from white cardstock and then just trace/doodle the details as desired. Since I was creating a scene using the Garden Bench, I decided to incorporate some of the pieces from the new ECD Wheelbarrow die by Els van de Burgt. I also used the All Seasons Tree, which comes with the clouds, leaves and flowers, and the Outdoor Edges die for the grass. Poppy the Owl is wearing the hat and glasses from the Props 1 die set. For the card front, I embossed with the Trendy Tiles 1 embossing folder and then traced around the pattern. I used a black gel pen, medium, to do all the detail work on this card.
