Happy Snowman on a Frosty Morning !

Hi Friends,
It feels so good to be back crafting after so long....
It's such a wonderful time with the change in the weather...with cool evenings & sunny mornings. It's Time to get all those fancy warm clothes out along with our favourite. blankets to snuggle in & stay warm!!

Today I have a Picture Tute (made for the Crafter's Corner Blog).
I wanted to welcome the Winters, hence I made this Happy Snowman on a Frosty Morning - Slider Pop Up card !

so let's begin the Pictorial for this awesome Slider Pop Up Card !
It's a PICTURE HEAVY please sit back with hot Coffee/Hot Chocolate & some of your fav. cookies to enjoy the Tute !!

Before I begin the Tute, here's a picture of the complete Card !

Okay let's begin with the Tutoial "

Firstly gather your Card stock in the sizes shown in the picture below.
(note : The card stock should be sturdy enough to be in an upright position)

Next : Emboss the 5 3/8"x4" card stock using your embossing Folder.

Use your Distress Paint Daubers to give a Distressed Look to the embossed Card Stock.

Score at 1 1/2" from one end. This will be the base of the POP-UP !

Score the 2 1.2" x 1 1/2" Piece at 1/2"
This is the Front Pop Up Piece. (sorry about the blurry picture)

Next score the 2 3/4"x 1" piece at  1/2" and 2 /4"
This is the Back Pop Mechanism Piece.

Now score the 1 1/2" x 1/2" piece at 1/2" and 1"
This is the Back Pop Up mechanism Piece.

Our next step will be to decorate our Wrap Up Piece.
Take your 1 1/2" x 9" piece and Stamp on it.
(You can also take a Pattern Paper if you like)
But make sure the paper is a thin one, so that the card can slide easily.

Next apply a strong Glue to the Bottom of the Embossed piece.
Do not go above the score line.

Now line up the Long stamped Piece to the Base of the 
embossed Piece along the scored line. 

Lay the base flat on the work surface & lift up the Upper
Part of the embossed piece as shown above.

Now take the Front Pop Up piece, and apply glue on 
one end till the score line.

Stick the Base of this Pop Up piece to the fold of the 
embossed piece's centre.

Next take your 1 1/2" x 1/2" piece which is scored at 1/2" and 1".
Apply glue to the ends. This is the Front Pop Up
Mechanism Piece.

Attach this small mechanism piece to the previous
 piece at the top scored line, as shown above.

Stick the other end to the embossed Piece directly.
It should look like this.

Your card will be upright as shown above.
The front Pop Up piece is Ready !!

Next, take the Base piece and line it up under the embossed piece. 
It should form a uniform frame all around. DO NOT STICK THE BASE TO THE EMBOSSED PIECE. Make sure the base of the card & the Band Piece is lined up properly.
You can press it down as well to keep it flat.

Next step is to make the band.
For that you will need to adhere one end of the stamped 
strip to the other end. Just make sure the band is not 
too tight, as it will make the paper buckle up.
It should be nice & Snug enough to keep the paper in an 
upright position else if too loose it will slide back in a
 flat position.

The band should look like this at the back.

Next you will need to take off the white base piece from the band.

Now using your 1" circle punch, punch out a semi circle 
in the centre through all the layers. This will form
the notch to pull the base piece. 

In case you want a sentiment/greeting make sure
that you write/stamp an inch above the that
it doesn't show through the punched area.

Once you have punched out the base, Slide back the white 
base card back into the band from behind.
It should look like this now.

Pull the card & bring it into an upright position.

Now take the last piece which is 2 3/4" x 1". Sharpen the crease
at 1/2" and 2 1/4" and glue at the scored edge on opposite sides.
Measure an inch down from the centre of the base top as shown above & stick one end of the pop up piece at the white base.

Now bring back the embossed piece to the white base. 
It will get stuck to the already glued pop up piece at the white base.

Next hold the card at the two sides of the band & pull the 
white tab which peeks through the punched area..
and Voila!! You have a Sliding Pop Up Card there.
It's ready to be embellished with all your favourite dies, stamped images,
embellishments etc....

here are some more pics of the card that I made.........

It's easy to go in the mail as well...just if you want to send these to your Friends & Family who live far away from you. The recipients can also display them in their craft room or living rooms in the Popped Up Position... This will surely make their occasion a very special one !!
