New Release Blog Hop ... Doodlebug Pop Up Surprise Ball Christmas Card

Hello my crafty friends

Today some of the Design Team is having a Blog Hop to share some amazing projects using Karen Burniston's new release. There are also PRIZES!! 


OMGoodness, the Surprise Ball Pop Up a fun die set! I had actually intended on sharing this card on the 4th, when we could start with the Sneak Peeks, but opted to go with the Parcel Pop Up in a coffee theme for the Coffee Lovers Blog hop instead.

When I received the dies I decided on a 5 x 7" holiday card, pulling out some cute patterned paper and stickers from Doodlebug Designs. The ball is held down with twine and brads, and when you unwind the twine the ball POPS UP. Along with the Surprise Ball die, I've used the new Flap and Closure die set as well.




I'm including a short YouTube video so you can see how cool this card is when it pop's up. Oh, and the ball also spins!!



I added a heart border using the Border Blends Argyle die set, and I think the 'Popping Up To Say' from Word Set 4 Just A Note is perfect for the Surprise Ball Pop Up. I adhered the stickers with glue so they would stay adhered, since they've been in my stash for awhile.



I made a flat, post card style card and this is the back. Lots of room to write our message when I go to send the card.



 Be sure to check out the links below so you don't miss out. And remember the Prizes? Each of the participating Design Team Members have a $25 Gift Certificate to give away. We will draw the names on November 15th 2019 - so be SURE that you have a valid email attached to your name when you leave a comment. Otherwise we can't get in touch with you.

I am so excited about the new releases. They came out at a great time for my husband who was wondering what to get me for Christmas and I suggested he get me the new dies. Bless his heart - he said I can have them as soon as they arrive - don't have to wait until Christmas.

Love all the wonderful ideas the dream-team (my name for you all) dream up.

Thanks. Diana
