I am going to be teaching a class soon that will feature Karen Burniston Pop It Up dies and this is the third card I have designed for the class. I love butterflies- who doesn't? and am featuring them on this card. The beautiful stamped butterfly is from a set by Fun Stampers Journey and I stamped it once and then a second time without re-inking. I created a belly band out of a floral dp and attached "celebrate" which I cut out with a Tonic Studios die and sponged just the bottom half with a blue ink. The front was completed with a small butterfly punched out of the dp with a Martha Stewart punch. And as always with Karen's dies, the surprise inside is my favorite part:
I die cut the pop up center of this card with a die from Karen Burniston called Anita Frame. There is a stamp set by Karen called "Occasions" with stamps that fit perfectly on pieces of this die set. I stamped and die cut the "Happy Birthday to you" label and attached it to the interactive right label of the diecut. The die set also included a die to decorate the top and bottom pop outs perfectly. I punched some more butterflies, adhered them and added some pearls to each. The Anita Frame die makes a gorgeous card very easy to make!
I am entering this card in the challenge at Simon Says Stamp (Wednesday) to use more than one die and/or punch.
