Just Ducky!

This card was designed for Craft Roulette #158 whose parameters were a peek-a-boo card using first grader colors featuring rain and distressed edges.

This card is a 5 7/8-inch square easel card with a bam box stopper. The Bam Box Pop-Up with its duck are made using dies by Karen Burniston.

The card base was made by trimming a 6×6-inch plaid paper in primary colors to 5 7/8-inch square. The blue stripe easel is made from another 6×6 piece of double-sided patterned paper that was cut to 5 1/4 x 6 inches.  Two edges were torn, and a tab scored and folded on the left short edge of one inch.  The diagonal fold was made after the panel was glued to the plaid card base. A 5 7/8-inch square piece of white cardstock was glued to the back of the plaid panel over the striped tab. 

View the assembly video for the bam box. Cut decorator panels from blue stripe paper. Die-cut duck and use stencil feature on die to add duck’s bill, eye and wing.

White clouds were cut from some shiny white packaging. The rule of three was followed for laying out the clouds which was based off where the cloud shaped window was placed.

Using a computer word processing program, the sentiment of “Hope you’re just DUCKY!” was created and fussy cut.  Placement of the words were based on where the fold of the easel happens and what area is covered by the easel panel closed and open.

To keep the bam box flattened, two clear vellum bands were made. The third white cloud was glued to the top band along with three clear plastic raindrops. The cloud covers the peek-a-boo cloud window.

The card fits into a 6×9 catalog envelope.
