Yes, Karen Burniston's Design Team is back with ANOTHER Blog Hop! This one has been in the works for a long time, so when Karen & Tanya decided to have a New Release Blog Hop we were so relieved that they didn't choose this date as we really wanted to surprise Karen!
I have a YouTube video that goes over some of the details of my card:
Because I like to work ahead, this was actually the first Slimline card I made with the Explosion Pop Up. Then, since I knew I wouldn't be posting it until today I did make another that I could share immediately. I was so excited at how well the Explosion Pop UP works in a Slimline card I wanted other's to know too so they can make some as well.
I used the Alpha dies for the word CELEBRATE, and again I was pleased with how well they worked on a Slimline. What a fun way to personalize a card, if you were to add someone's name!
Here is a peek at the inside, with the Explosion Pop Up. I also used the Border Blends, Cupcakes from the Cupcake Pop Up, and the swinging banner is from the Paper Frames Pop Up.
The words are from Word Set 2 - Birthday and I cut them from black card stock that had double sided adhesive on the back to make them easy to adhere to the card.
I didn't want the red card base to show through the opening behind the pop up piece, so I adhered a folded piece of the same patterned paper inside as shown below.
I hope you will hop along and see the fun inspiration we have for you as we celebrate Karen Burniston's Birthday from around the globe.
