Foxy Friends Sliding Flip Up Card

I've always wanted to try one of these Sliding Flip Up cards. They looked so complicated that I did not attempt one until now as I looked for new Fancy Fold designs for my Technique Night classes. But I found a great video tutorial that was so clear that the technique is actually quite easy once you have all your pieces cut and scored, and understand how everything works. I decided to use the Foxy Friends stamp set and Fox Builder Punch for the pop up scene, so naturally, the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack was perfect for the background. Take a closer look at how it works:

Here is the card flat and closed up so it can fit in a regular envelope.

And here it is with the slider part pulled out with a message on it and the background panel and the little raccoon panel sticking up. If you want to see how it is made, here is the excellent video tutorial I learned from: Sliding Pop Up Card Tutorial, made by Kim Score.

  • I used the palette of the A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper for my colours here including Pool Party, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray, Basic Black, Calypso Coral and Whisper White. A Little Foxy DSP is what you see on the back panel.
  • The sentiment, You are Awesome, is from the Grateful Bunch stamp set, while the Happy Birthday is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set.
  • That adorable little raccoon is made using the Fox Builder Punch with a little help from the Foxy Friends stamp set for his mask, eyes, nose, ears and tail. All the pieces were assembled with glue dots and Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Because Rocky the Raccoon was a little too small for the pop up piece of cardstock, I added a couple of different sized trees stamped using images from Foxy Friends and then hand snipped.
This is such a cool design and I can see it working so well with many different stamp sets and suites in our catalogue. I might just get addicted!
