Just a Note to Say

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. As the challenge hostess for the month I continue to issue the challenges.

Apparently the 19th January was National Popcorn Day, so let's add some 'POP' to our cards be it by creating a card that includes the theme popcorn; creating a Pop Up Card; just Popping up your image using foam tape or just adding a Pop of color to a black & white card.

I guess it is no big surprise that I would chose to create a card where something "Pops" up. For  my card today the front piece of the card pops up to reveal a hidden message on the front. 

I am loving this new die of Karen Burniston's the Hanging Charm Pull Tab Card, it can be used with the charms included in the die set or used with anything you want to use.

For my card I decided to use it with a couple of new Stamping Bella stamp sets I purchased prior to Christmas. 

Here is a view of my card taken at a different angle so you can see the tab which opens and closes the piece at the front to reveal the secret message.

This is how my card looks when it comes out of the envelope and it is closed. You then need to pull the tab where the ribbon is to make the frame pop up.

You could  put the Hanging Charm Pull Tab onto the front of a folded card, even inside a card or as I have done here I have kept mine flat.

On the back I have added a white piece of card and stamped the macarons again, so that I have somewhere to write a personal message when I am ready.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
