Hello Crafty Friends! The card I have today was one that I had been thinking about for a bit now. Ever since Karen Burniston came out with the amazing Baking Charms and I made a kitchen background for my pop-up gnome baker, I have been trying to come up with a pop-up or pop-open oven card.
Finally after thinking till my thinker was sore, I realized that I could use Karen Burniston's Frame Pull Pop-Up only upside down to create an oven with a oven door that opened.
For this card, I tried to use a slimline card so that I could make bigger counters, but there wasn't enough room to add the Baking Charms to the top of the counter. So I went with a 5x7 card.
I die cut a rectangle using the Rectangles and Labels - Crosshatch die set. I left the crosshatched edge white and then added some blue checked patterned paper as the wall behind the oven and cupboards.
I cut smaller rectangles to create the cupboard doors. With a black pen, I added door handles. Then using the heart dies from the Frame Pull Pop-Up, I added two shiny red hearts using a glossy red cardstock.
I die cut the oven pieces using the dies from the Frame Pull Pop-Up, adding a "glass" front on the door (which was just some thick acetate I have) and adding some extra details using a shiny silver cardstock along with gray and black cardstock.
I added a black strip to the inside and then from the Picnic Elements die set, cut out the pie to add to the inside of the oven.
I added some of the same patterned paper from the background to the pull tab on the oven.
Once I had the oven glued to the front of the card, I die cut the pieces from the Baking Charms using smooth white cardstock and hand colored them using Copic markers. Then I glued them where I wanted them.
I stamped the sentiment on the front from MFT - Essential Sentiments using Versa Mark Ink and white embossing powder.
I just love how this card turned out! Next time, I will try to add some more details to the oven, like an oven handle and maybe something for burners. Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
