Some Birthday fun today! I used the cute Designer paper Birthday Memories to create this card. The fun part about this paper is that the characters can be fussy cut from the paper and used as is! There is also a matching stamp set that has stamps of many of the images. But the REAL fun here is in inside 🙂
I used Karen Burniston’s new Twist Panel Pop Up to make the card! Again, the images are fussy cut from the paper and are marching across the panel.
Here’s a closer look at the panel. Such a fun die – no measuring!! Hooray! Just die cut, assemble and go! Perfect to pair with this paper 🙂 Hugs, Fran
(ETA – I goofed! This was for this Tuesday – not last Tuesday! I’m a week ahead!) Just in time for Father’s Day, the Paper Pros are sharing masculine cards. I started with Guy Greetings (my “go to masculine” stamp set) and some retired paper. I colored just the pants on the strong man and accented the word Father with a hand drawn line. But the fun is in the inside 🙂
On the inside I used the new Karen Burniston Twist Panel Pop Up card. These style of cards are SO much fun, and the new die takes all the guess work and measuring out of the equation! Just die cut and go! I added a little message strip on the left side by just folding a strip of vanilla card stock and tucking it in the fold. The banner die across the top comes with the set – so easy! Have fun checking out all the other ideas from the Paper Pros! Hugs, Fran

Fran Sabad – You are here 🙂
This 5 x 5 card holds a fun secret inside. The outside uses a two new dies from Karen Burniston – the Cupcake from the Cupcake Pop Up, rectangle from the Twist Panel Pop Up and the sentiment from Word Set 2. Then you open it up to find….
And explosion of fun! This twist panel is a die that does all the hard work for you! I decorated the panels with the smaller cupcake from the Cupcake Pop Up and stamped the 3rd panel with a small Happy Birthday stamp over and over in different colors. The edge is done with a die from Karen’s new Nature Edges set.
It’s so easy to create these fun cards! No more measuring and trying to make your own mechanism 🙂 Too much fun! Hugs, Fran
