Birthday card

My friend Linda's birthday was today and I presented her with this pop-up card I created from a Sizzix die (#657130) I recently bought at Hobby Lobby. When I asked her if she liked it she replied, "No, I don't like it, I LOVE it!" Needless to say I was so glad:) I used some rub-on butterflies for the outside of the card along with a paper punch for the lacy edge. (I think it might be a Martha Stewart punch, but not sure.) The girl image inside the card is from Paper Whimsey and the little die cut fence and flowers are from Memory Box.
Thought I'd post it as I haven't been creating (nor posting) much these past few months. This card was so much fun and with this die, I can see me making many, many more. Love these pop-up card bases and many thanks to Karen Burniston who created this particular one
! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.....

Pop n' Cuts Class

It's been a rough several months on the homefront, just way too much going on. However, on a lighter side, my friend Linda and I attended a class at 'Stamp, Scrap & More' yesterday. I've had a passion for pop-ups since I was a child so this kind of thing is right up my alley:) Karen Burniston has come up with an amazing product that Sizzix is now manufacturing and we were lucky to attend this class and create four cards. I'm attaching a photo of one of my favorites. To see more of Karen's dies and cards, you might want to check out her blog - Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by... Debbie
