Today I am sharing a sunshine summer card featuring the new 1011 Katherine Label Pop Up Die Set from Karen Burniston. If you click on the link, you will see all the pieces in this die set as well as a die assembly video and handy pdf. You will also see that the die set does include label dies to create the pop up label and the label frame. I used them on another card that is going to be blogged July 1st for a Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge. But for this card, I knew I wanted to feature the summer sunglasses die (from Alina Crafts) which were too big for the label dies in the set. I was able to easily switch out the pop up label and frames to some larger ones from the Cockle Shell Layering Set by Tonic Studios. I started with a 5 1/2" x 11" side folding yellow card base. Before I cut out the pop up label and frame, I sponged Fossilized Amber Distress Ink through a TCW stencil that looks like sun rays and stamped "You are my Sunshine" (from Crackerbox Palace) with black ink.
The label with the sunglasses pops up on the inside as shown, and when the card is closed, pops into the opening on the front. Such an ingenious design from Karen Burniston! I added a die cut Adirondack chair (die cut from Die-Versions) and a summer sentiment from Joy's Life Stamps. Here is a peak at the apparatus that pops up the sunglasses label:
I admit I tried to make a card with this pop up into an opening on the front following a tutorial video in the past and struggled mightily. With this new Katherine Label Pop Up Set from KB, it was so easy to make this fun pop up card and I am teaching this card in my next classes in my home.
Thanks for helping me #spread the joy of creativity!
