Enjoy Your Day

Hi everyone, 

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being the challenge hostess for January I  finish off the month with one last challenge.

Who doesn't love chocolate cake! Did you know the even have a special day to celebrate this yummy treat! Chocolate Cake Day was the 27th January. Your cards this week should feature cake, bonus points if it is chocolate cake. 

This week I have created another Explosion Pop Up Card using the new Cake Pop Up Cad die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. You can find out how to turn a pop up card into an Explosion Pop Up Card go check out Karen's video tutorial on how to create this card here. 

I used one of the edges from the Pull Card Edges die set to create the brown decorative edge at the top and bottom of my card. Over the brown edge I added Pink Glitter Border Peel Off Stickers.

The sentiment is from the new  Just a Note Clear Stamp Set and is layered using one of the oval labels from the Oval Landscape Accordion die set.

Here is the front of my card, I used another of the sentiments from the  Just a Note Clear Stamp Set which are again layered using the oval labels from the Oval Landscape Accordion die set. The cake & fork are from Props 8,

Oh my goodness, the hours this pop up card would have taken me to make. You are just amazing, Frances. No doubt about it!!

Lynn McAuley said...

Your amazing fanned polka dot paper certainly make your pop up cake the star of this remarkable design!! Outstanding work, Frances!

Lois said...

The front of your card does not prepare one for the wonderful explosion on the inside! I'm going to have to give that a try one of these days. As Lynn said, "Outstanding work, Frances!"
