C4C392 Canada Day Pop-Up Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday and a new month - so we have a new challenge and a new hostess at the Crazy4Challenges Blog. Maryann Einam will be our hostess with Kristine Reynolds joining us as our Guest Designer all month. You can see Kristine's blog HERE.

Here is Maryann's challenge "According to the Days of the year calendar today is Hop a Park day - using stamps or dies or both create a scene or something that you may see in a park".

Since the challenge falls on Canada Day, I had to make a Canada Day card! This is our 150th Birthday, and there will be picnics, BBQ's, parties and celebrations in parks all over the country today.

For the 'Canadian Flag' on the card front, I added a stitched Maple Leaf cut from red glitter card stock. I kept it simple, as all the fun is on the inside!

Here is the card opening ...

... and fully open. I used Karen Burniston's new Flower Pot Pop-Up die set, filling it with red and white Maple Leaves of various sizes, sparkly fish tail banners and gold foil flourishes.

Both of these stamps I've had for a couple of years - I found them in one of the bins at Michaels and knew I'd get good use out of them.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C392.
