December 2016 Pop It Ups Designer Challenge #2

Hi everyone,

Welcome to our second Pop It Ups Designer Challenge for December. This time round our challenge was set by Sandy Diller who gave us the theme ... "Party Animals" - use any of the Character dies for a card celebrating the New Year or anything else!

For my card today I created a Z fold card using the Tags Pivot Card.

As you can see I have used Jinks the Monkey which I die cut three times one so that it would be the mirror image of the other two. I also used the bucket from the Barrel Basket with Pop Up die set which my monkeys I climbing out of. The monkeys in the basket was inspired by a couple of cards by fellow Design Team member Fran Sabad. 

As it is supposed to be a party theme I also added party hats for each of the monkeys which is from the Props 2 die set.

For the tag part of the card I the happy birthday sentiment from the Steampunk Clear Stamp set for the centre tag. 

For the two outer tags I used some of the sentiments from W Plus 9. I also added a party blower to the largest tag which is also from the Props 2 die set.

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