Sweet Stamps-Pedestal Pop-Up Challenge

  This week at the Sweet Stamps Challenge we are making Pedestal Pop up cards. The tutorial is from Splitcoast Stampers and can be found HERE.

     Here is the card front:
    and here is the card opened up:
 How fun is this! I hope you will be inspired to give it a try and join us in the challenge : )

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:
Thank You sentiment HERE
Carnation flower image HERE
Coordinations cardstock HERE
Beach from Sandy Tans and Cardinal from Classy Reds
Authentique Carefree HERE
Rectangle Multiframe Die HERE
Scor Tape HERE
Embossing Folder Scrollwork HERE
Cheery Lynn Dies HERE
- Mini Flourish (front of card), Small exotic butterflies, Swedish Spring Oval Frame.

 I cut the die on the main pop-up, cut the tan die apart and used the center as a back-drop for the floral image, and took the outer part and used it (cut up) in the corners.

So, I want to show you 'HOW' I made a template for my dies and easily cut out my sentiment. It is just like a template you would make for your punches.......

 For each multi-set of templates I have, I cut out each die and save the positive and the negative.
 I take my image or sentiment and place it behind the opening, or over the die cut and see what size or shape template will work best for me.
 I have chosen this template for my sentiment. I place the die into the opening of the template and attach it with removable tape.
 Sorry this is a tiny bit blurry- monster allergy headache today.......  I center the image in the template opening, and when I have it in place where I want it, add removable tape.
 Next step- cut it out in your die cut machine. Perfect!
 Before I remove the die, I add some ink to the panel to highlight it and add dimension with a sponge dauber.
