Thank You Pivot Pop up Card! CAS Colours & Sketches

Something new for you guys again today!

I tried a small Pivot Pop-up Card -
It is BEYOND fun to pop open!
I will be making more of these for sure!

I co-ordinated my card with this months challenge over at 
CAS Colours & Sketches
Here is their colour swatch challenge:

Please visit them & play along here:

Now for my card!
I selected a stamp set that I could create a scene with.
I used my  MFT Mermazing stamp.

This card is a bit smaller than a regular A4 card,
I wanted the pivot pop-up to feel sized to the card.

Here is the front:
I just adore these cute Mermaids!!
 My cute little mermaid is just hanging out in the ocean!
I inked the water with a mask I made & layered
Peacock feather  & Broken china Ranger Distress ink.
Next a added seaweed & coral in layers with 
my Memento ink, and added 2 schools of fish for interest.
I popped up the rock and mermaid to give some more interest & depth to the card.
Lastly I added the sentiment on lower pop dots.

Here is the inside of the card: 

As always here is a closer look at the pop up scene.
I love closer looks at everything!!
I needed to keep most of the items flat to allow the card to fold up.
I created this insert in almost the same way as the cover, 
I did add the ocean floor using Wild Honey & Vintage photo distress ink,
I dabbed the applicator to give the sand a stippled or pebbled look.

My mermaid is covered in Stickles ~ to give her a little pizzazz!!
It also gives the flat scene a pop!
The seashells have Wink of Stella on them, this doesn't show up well in photos
unless I angle the card in a close up.

 Short of adding a video here on  my blog, 
I wanted to give you an idea of how the card
pops-up & pivots!
I hope these photos help!!
My daughter loved this card - the scene and the surprise inside!

Thank you as always for stopping in to see my creations!!
