Ewok Know How

Here is how I made my pop up box EWOK card.
Start with just a simple pop up box base.  I used SU window sheet (acetate) .  Make sure you put 3 Z fold cross pieces in the middle.  Just gives your card a bit more dimension and the chance to add more embellishments.  There are many patterns on the internet, all different sized ones.  I chose to make mine a tad smaller than normal.  Here, in Australia we have C6 envelopes (standard size).  This one fits this.  But choose a size that suits you.  :-)
Next you will need to die cut some greenery.  I used my SU dies.  This pine tree frond is from the current Occassions Mini Catalogue, Christmas Staircase Thinlits dies.  This set has 2 of these fronds which makes cutting out for this card twice as fast! Who doesn't love that!  I cut out approx. 20 from SU Garden Green cardstock.  You could also use the Pretty Pines thinlits for the bigger greenery behind the "EWOK" word. 
I cut out a panel of white cardstock for the back. The top half I stencilled clouds and the bottom half I sponged with Garden Green ink to fill in behind the fronds I then stuck on it. 
I die cut the letters from White card using my SU Large Letters dies.  Then used my copics to give it a wood grain look.  E23 E25 E27.  glue to window sheet (acetate) cut around the word and adhere to the middle cross pieces with double sided tape. 
Stamp the log and stump from the MFT set Happy Hedgehogs ( as many as you require)  and colour using the same colours as the EWOK word.  the leaves I used YG13 and YG17.  Hand cut these.  One log I shortened and used a black marker to hand draw and shorter edge. 
Ewoks.  Gotta love them right? Yes!  All I did was google search pics of them.  And chose my colours from there.
 I stamped these from the Kindred set, Galactic Adventures-The Sequel.   Once coloured I hand cut them all out ( would love a scan n cut.  Maybe Santa might me nice to me?  Fingers crossed).   
Then it is just a matter of adhering everything to the card wherever you  want them.  I had so much fun with this card.  As soon as I seen the ewok stamp, this is the card I envisioned.  My favourite is the little one hanging upside down...hehe.
