Karen Burniston's THANK YOU card.

I sent this card to the lovely Karen Burniston to say thank you for sharing her awesomeness with me:)

I used her new Elizabeth crafts fancy accordion pop it up die. I love the coordinating fancy frame edges that made the card look a bit like a stamp. The letterbox cling stamp I used was a freebie from the front of a magazine a year or so ago. I used my letraset promarkers to colour it and then used so Anita embossing liquid to give it a more 3D effect.

I used my Elizabeth craft design thank you die to make 2 navy blue and 1 lighter blue set of die cuts. I then glued them all together making sure to overlap the darker die cuts at the back to create shadowed effect words.

Man of the match pop it up card.




One of my charges who is sports mad is 8 soon.


I found this teddy football stamp and knew it was perfect to create a card for my little Hull city tigers fan.
I used Karen Burniston's new Lucy label pop it up die and her new agatha edge dies from Elizabeth craft designs.

Time for another card...

I used Karen Burniston's accordion circle die for this timey-wimey card. I love how quickly and easily these cards come together with the new frame sets specifically for these new pop it up dies.

I added a yellow birthday and happy to the front and back of the card so the recipient can display it any way they like.


Here are some of the products I used:




Karen Burniston pop it up butterfly card...

I am in love with Karens new pop it up dies!! Just when I think I love a certain die the most I make another card and I love THAT one the most!

I love all the different size butterfly's that fit this card, but I love the Lace butterfly dies the best!

This die is definitely my favourite:)


Happy 12th birthday Karen Burniston label card...

I again copied one of Helens ideas to make a mini birthday card with Karens new Elizabeth craft Katie label die set.
I left the right side of the card empty to write the message on.

Karen Burniston pop it up chair card...

This is one of many cards I've managed to make this week using Karens brand new Elizabeth crafts pop it up dies.
I remember my friend Helen over at diningroomdrawers made a similar one using the gorjuss girl on top of the world die and I just had to have a go with this chair pop it up.
I used Elizabeth craft designs happy birthday die on the new label dies.

Wedding invite card...

I was asked to make some simple wedding invite cards by a friend. After a little peruse around Pinterest I designed these.

They didn't take as long as I thought they would to make. The bows took the longest as although I have a paper mania bow making tool, I want the bows to sit more symmetrically than the bow maker seemed to get them.
I bought the wedding rings from eBay and after experimenting with all my different glues, I decided my hot glue gun did the job the best.
