This witch’s kitchen card is fun to make, and who wouldn’t be delighted to receive this cute pop up card?
This year I’ve started making a lot of pop up cards using purchased cut files and my Silhouette Cameo machine. You might remember this vintage typewriter pop up card I made with metallic vinyl to give it a cool sheen. Since we’re creeping closer to fall I decided to make a Halloween card this time.
I used most of the original cut file from Furrow and Feather for the card, but I omitted the background shelf and drawers, as well as some of the smaller details in the front of the card. I wanted this to be really three dimensional, with lots of texture and depth, so I changed it up a little bit.
Witch’s Kitchen Card Supplies
- Halloween Witch Kitchen Box Card Cut File by Furrow & Feather
- Cardstock in various colors
- Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Ink Pads in several colors
- Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder
- Various Tim Holtz Stamps
- Distressing tools
- Poly-Fil Fiber Fill
- Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue
After I cut the files out, I used a damask stamp to create the pattern on the back wall. After I stamped the pattern I used distress embossing powder and my heat embossing tool to set it.
I used embossing ink on the cat and the cauldron to add more distress embossing powder and give those two elements texture.
I stamped the book and a rectangle of cardstock to make the sign for the witch’s apothecary. All the smaller items were inked, distressed, and grunged up before assembling the card.
To finish off the card I glued some Poly-Fil Fiber Fill to the back of the pot to make the steam that the cat is playing with. I glued a bit of moss on the front, and added two shrink plastic mason jars that have other witchy ingredients in them.
Have fun crafting & creating spooky 3-D cards for Halloween! I’m entering this card in the Stamped with Love Challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog.
