Explosion Pop Up Birthday Card

Hello crafty friends ...

Today I'm sharing another card that was sent to Hochanda to show on air. The hosts really seemed to like it, and I can't tell you how proud that makes me! The Karen Burniston Peeps Page on FaceBook had a Watch Party, and it was lots of fun to watch the first episode with a group of crafty online friends.

The front is bright and cheerful - and sparkly! - but really quite simple with some die cut balloons, patterned paper and a die cut Celebrate. The sequins were added for additional sparkle (for those camera lights!) and the card is actually held closed with the ribbon.

Remember you can see all my interactive cards on my YouTube Channel HERE!

Below, the ribbon has been untied ...

I even added a glittery mat ... you know I love sparkle and shine on my birthday cards!

Here is the inside! One of the great things about Karen Burniston Pop Up dies, is that YOU get to choose the card size. This one is a full 7 x 5". None of the cards I made for Hochanda were an A2, since that is a North American size.

I die cut the Celebrate three times. curving the centre one over the middle balloon.
