Pop-up: ship & island

A student was involved in inventing a fictional country in my classroom, called Watta. So I made a card celebrating the arrival of his exploration vessel in the waters off Watta Island, under a waxing moon.

This is my most complicated card to date. It uses the box cut as a series to form the dark green humps of the island. the lighter green of the distant hills is a tabbed bar with slots cut into the bottom of it, to fit it together with the structure of the box cuts. The moon and the ship are both attached to tabs which join to the base, and to the background of the card. It’s a nice bit of construction.
