Karen Burniston April Designer Challenge Day 2

Hi everyone,

As promised yesterday, I am back with my second card for the April Karen Burniston Designer Challenge. This time round Karen has given us the theme ..... The Great Outdoors - create any sort of outdoor scene. 

For my card today I decided to create a pop-up card using the Hot Air Balloon die set that comes with an optional pop up die. I figured you would be able to see a lot of the great outdoors from up in a hot air balloon. I also seem to have collected a number of hot balloon themed designer papers. 

On the lower part of the pop-up I added a panel of cream cardstock, on the top and bottom of this panel I added the scallop border from the Pull Card Edges die set. I added the A Way with Words Happy Birthday sentiment to the panel and then stamped the two tiny hot air balloons from the What's Up? Clear Stamp set.

Here is another view of the inside of my card taken at a different angle so you can see the pop up a little better.

For the front of my card I  used the circle edge die from the Pull Card Edges die set on the designer paper panel. 

I stamped the sentiment from the What's Up? Clear Stamp set which is layered onto a circle from the Stitched Circles die set.

If you are looking to purchase Karen's Pop It Ups dies in Australia you can find them at Craft Giraffe (formerly Photo Continental).

Don't forget to check out  Karen Burniston's blog  on Wednesday when you will be able to see what all the designers created for the challenge this month, plus an amazing card/video tutorial from Karen Burniston.
