As I was experimenting with the new Peekaboo Frames Big Shot die I was happy to discover it could be used to make a pop-up beach chair. It is remarkably easy to make too!
I chose a feminine theme for this retirement card but it with a change of papers and a few modifications it would could be masculine as well.
I kept the front very simple by "fussy cutting" the floral image to fit the card and adding the layered sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.
To make the pop up chair portion of the card:
1. Tape a 2-1/2" X 4" piece of striped DSP on the Peekaboo Frames die. Carefully line up the stripes.
8. Pick it up and fold it in half with the stripes to the inside.
10. It will now look like this.
11. I made little rectangular tubes of DSP to make the pop up. For the back one score a 1"X 3-1/2" piece, at 1/2, 1-1/2, 2, and 3. For the seat score a 1" X 1" 2- 1/2" piece at 1/2, 1, 1-1/2 and 2. Attach these to the underside of the chair sections and adhere to the decorated card.
Below is a close up of the purse and book. The purse is made with the cupcake punch and the book uses the DSP from the paper stack with the words.
