Hi everyone,
First up Happy 4th July to my US friends, I hope you all have a great day … to everyone else … have a great day too Smile.

For my card today I am sharing some of the new Karen Burniston’s dies being released by Elizabeth Crafts Designs this month. The dies should be in the stores mid July so watch out for them!


As you can see this is a pop up card using Karen Burniston’s new Lorna Label Pop-Up die set. If you look at the photo below which is the label included with the dies, you can see how the die normally looks on a card. For my card however I have actually turned the die upside down so that the large label part of the die could be the frozen ice floating in the ocean. For this portion of the card I had die cut just the pop up section only using Double Sided Adhesive Paper and card and then covered it with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and attached that over the existing pop up piece on the card.



I have added Chilly the Penguin (908) to the rectangle pop up piece at the back of the card. As you can see I have been having fun cutting Chilly with both the positive and negative pieces when you die cut the penguin from Black and White Velvet Adhesive Sheets  so you get two different looking penguins … I also used the Props 1 (911) die set to add the hat and bow to each of the penguins.

The speech bubble used for the sentiment is another of the accessory dies which comes with the Lorna Pop Up Die set … cool ha! The snowflakes are from yet another new die set called Circle Spiral Pull Card (916), this is another cool die set which I will share with you soon. I added Silver/Clear Glitter Dots to the centres of the snowflakes.


For the front of my card I combined the dies from Karen’s new Outdoor Edges (914) with the Agatha Edges die set to create my  snow scene. I have again die cut using Double Sided Adhesive Paper and card and then covering it with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter after it was die cut. I colored the trees using copics.
