It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As the challenge hostess for the month I continue to issue the challenges.
As today is my birthday let's create a card that includes the things I love … owls and cards that pop up; flip or pull open; accordion style etc. Any type of construction style card will do anything goes but preferably not a flat card this week.
One of the newest style of Pop It Ups this year is the Hanging Charm Pull Tab Card designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I have been having so much fun playing with this die set that I decided to use it for my card today.
Heartfelt Creations released a new collection earlier in the year ... Sugar Hollow Collection which is all about Owls. When my local craft store got these I was the first to put them in my basket (they hadn't even made it to the shelves yet haha). So of course I decided to use those on my card. There are 6 sets in the collection, I have used images or sentiments from 4 of the stamp sets for this card.
Here is another view of my card at a different angle so you can see the pop up portion of the card in action.
Here is my card when it is closed ready to pop in an envelope. As you can see I also added the A Way with Words Happy Birthday 2 sentiment to the card .
Rather than use the frame that comes with the die set for the pop up piece I have used rectangles from the Stitched Rectangles & Fitted Rectangles die set to give me more room to fit my image.
And finally the back of my card .... of course I had to add another owl image from one of the other stamp sets and the sentiment from another set.
