Turkey Pop-Up Card

Good morning friends

I have to admit that I have never made a Floating Floor Pop-Up card before. I know Karen Burniston offered the template on her blog and I liked what others did with it. But templates and I don't often get along and I prefer to avoid them if I can. So you can imagine how thrilled I was to find out that her new House & Fence Pop-Up die set includes a Floating Floor die. Die!!

I wanted to try it out with a simple card. Here is the front - the embossed fishtail piece was already done - it was in the scrap bin so I pulled it out to use.

Here is the inside, with my first ever Floating Floor. I have to say the die makes these so easy peasy - I had no trouble making it at all and needn't have worried about keeping this first one simple.

I used some die cut graphics for the embellishments, stamping and Nuvo Crystal Drops as accents.

This was such a fun card to make and I immediately had to make one for the holidays which I will share another day. My only tip would be to keep the embellishments up a bit on the tabs that stand up in the floating floor. My cooked turkey element touched the floor when I adhered it, and I do find the card squeaks when it opens.
