Flamingo Circle Charm Card

Good morning friends

Today I'm sharing another card made with Karen Burniston's newest release and this one features the Circle Charm Pop-Up. I have made several cards with this die set, and have made it differently each time - it's such a versatile set!!!

For this one I made a top fold card. Below you can see the card opening, and how the design on the front of the card pivots from the front to the inside. Back in February, I'd been craving tropical colours and patterns so picked up this paper pad. I'm so glad I did, as it is going to work perfectly with this release!

Ta Da ... here is the card fully open. One of the cool things about this card, is that you don't need a backing card so it can be done with just a single piece of card stock.

This centre section is actually a frame meant to dangle a charm from. Instead I added a backing circle and adhered the flamingo charm to it with a leafy branch from the Flowers & Bee set. I just snipped off the hanging hole from the flamingo, then added details with a white gel pen and a black marker.

The Cake Trims work well on top fold cards - just another way to use your dies.

Remember to leave me a comment on my Blog Hop collaboration card (see HERE) for a chance to win a Cupcake Pop-Up die! I'll be drawing a name for the prize at 10pm tonight (MST) or as close to it as I can, and will post the winner in my blog post tomorrow morning.
