Magical Day

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Our challenge hostess for the month Anne Harmon continues to issue the challenges.

Spring brings lots of changes to our landscapes.  Make a scenic card, and be sure to add some RED! 

I received this fun Mushroom Home Stamp/Die set recently from my friend Maryann which I have been wanting to play with since my birthday but haven't had the opportunity. So I decided to make this work for our challenge this week.

As you can see I have created a pop-up card using the Lots of Pops Pop Up Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I used cloud and grass designer paper to set my scene and then added the various elements to my card.

The elves used on this card are ones I have had for years from Art Impressions, it was fun pulling them out and I used my Scan N Cut to cut out each image ... I am loving not having to cut out these images :). I also used the Scan N cut to cut all the elements on the mushroom house so I could have them in white rather than the kraft color I used for my mushroom.

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

The sun is from the Oval Pull Card die set.

For the front of my card I have created another scene similar to the one on the inside but with different elves.
