Cactus Pop-Up Father's Day Card - Brutus Monroe Collaboration

Good morning friends

This week the Karen Burniston Riley Design Team is doing a collaboration with the folks at Brutus Monroe. You can see more at the Brutus Monroe BLOG, and be sure to check out my fellow teammates for their projects.

I decided to make a Father's Day card, so pulled out some woodgrain patterned paper and the Katherine Label Pop-Up. This is a versatile die set, and can be done with a window or not. For today's card I chose to make a circular window using various circles etc from the Snowman Twist Circle Pop-Up die set.

You can also choose whether or not to add a transparency in your window, which I did here. I like that it gives you a little peek at what is inside.

When the card is opened, the stamped label raises and pops up - so cool! I chose to use a different shape on the pop-up arm, than the circular window as an additional surprise when you open the card.

I really like these Brutus Monroe cactus stamps - they were fun to play with and you know how much I love SW imagery!

I'll be back tomorrow with TWO Posts ... tomorrow morning I will have a SNEAK PEEK of the new release by Karen Burniston, and tomorrow evening will be my card for the Karen Burniston Riley/Brutus Monroe BLOG HOP, including a chance to win a prize!!
