Colour Creations Blog Hop week 7 Azure Afternoon Racing By Pop Up


Hello, I'm back with another Racing By card for week 7 of the Colour Creation Blog Hop. This week the team at Art With Heart are creating projects that feature Azure Afternoon, a lovely bright blue from the Brights Colour Family.

For this card I started stamping the car images from the bottom of the Basic White card front. I staggered the alignment of the cars so hopefully they look like a whole field of race cars racing by.
Due to the dreary weather in Melbourne over the last few days I had trouble getting nice photos of my cards so please forgive the fingers in a couple of the pictures, I was chasing the light.

I stamped the solid colours of the cars in Azure Afternoon, Gorgeous Grape and Lemon Lime Twist. The greeting is stamped in Gorgeous Grape.

To make the inside of the card a bit special I added an extra pop up car. I stamped the outline in Memento Black, the main car colour in Gorgeous Grape and this time I added a driver in Azure Afternoon. I just realised that all of my race cars on the front are driverless, OOOps! They must be driverless race cars of the future ;) 

This pop up mechanism was super easy. Just a strip of card stock scored at intervals of 2cm then joined to form a box. This was secured on two side to the inside of the card. The card was then attached to the front face of the box.

Azure Afternoon is a fabulous,bright blue that works perfectly with so many of Stampin' Up!s beautiful colours, some bright and some not so bright. Now it's time for more Azure Afternoon inspiration from the Art With Heart Team. The next blog in line is Rosa Leyden.
