Video: Karen Burniston Upsy Daisy Cards for Any Celebration


I make Christmas cards all year round and share how to make this one in my newest video here. The front is lovely with Memory Box's Stitched Circle die over a sunrise scene created with Distress Oxides, Versamark ink and glitter embossing powder. The wish for peace was created with a die from Quietfire Design. But as with all cards I make with Karen Burniston's dies, the real fun happens when the card is opened: 



It is easier to see in the video how the Upsy Daisy die set works to pop up both sides of the center. I die cut two squares using a stitched snowflake die from Poppy Stamps and attached those to sparkly blue cardstock squares. The center circle features another beautiful word die from Suzanne Cannon and Quietfire Designs and is held up with a strip of strong acetate. I stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts and added a large stitched snowflake die cut from Memory Box to the top. The center pieces fold down to mail and pop up when the card is opened. 

I am entering this card in the Christmas in July challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday.
