Designer Challenge Pop-Up Congratulations Card

Hello my crafty friends

Welcome to Karen Burnston's April 2019 Designer Challenge, where the theme is 'CONGRATS'. This can be a graduation or general congrats -your choice!

Our Son-in-Law recently won a prestigious award at the University of Calgary, and I wanted to make a special card for him. I chose the Oval Frames Pop-Up and Word Set 8 Celebrate for my card today. Here is the front:

The red dot on the banner is actually the fall-away piece from the owl's glasses (inside the card). :-)

Inside I used the Oval Frames Pop-Up and chose not to add the additional frames over the centre ovals. I die cut the CONGRATS! using the Alphabet die set and popped them up on the ovals. Since it was a 'school' themed award I added the glasses from Tiny Accessories One as a rather stereotypical theme.

You get so much dimension with the Oval Frames Pop-Up but the whole card folds completely flat for mailing.

Seriously, how CUTE is this owl from the Feathered Animals. OMGosh, I just love him. Since there is no fold in the outer two ovals, I was able to adhere this smaller oval in between the two right ovals hanging down enough to fit the owl on yet still fold easily. The scroll/award from the Tiny Accessories Two was perfect for this card.

Initially I had a different card in mind for him but this challenge changed my mind so this is the card we gave to him to celebrate his achievement.

I hope you will check out what the rest of the Design Team came up with for the challenge - their blogs are linked on the right. Karen Burniston will have her project and group post on her blog tomorrow (Wednesday) on HER BLOG.
