A Musical Birthday

Karen Burniston challenged us to use any of her new Pop It Ups dies to create anything we wanted – makes my head spin!  I decided to use her Pop It Ups Accordion Fancy Label to create a birthday card.  The “Happy Birthday” is an Elizabeth Craft Design die that is so nice and thin I could bend is in an arc across the front.  The flower is a stack of Petite Petal punch flowers scrunched to make a little flower.  The little banner is the new banner punch in the SAB mini – rounded with an oval punch on the top.

Here it is open.  The center square is embossed using My Friend.  The “to You” is made up of the “You” in the ECD die Thank You and the “to” is the T from birthday and O from you.  (Does that make sense?)  The die for the Red Glimmer paper diamonds in the corner comes with the Accordion Fancy Label die!

Stamp Set – My Friend
Cardstock – Very Vanilla, Red Glimmer paper, Basic Black, Modern Medley DSP
Ink – Versamark
Etc – Pop It Ups Accordion Fancy Label, ECD Happy Birthday and Thank You dies, Small banner punch, Petite Petal punch, Candy dots

Lots of fun!  Hugs, Fran

    Fantastic card done with one of my absolute favorite pop up dies!!!!! I love this die, I have used it for all kinds of cards from Halloween to Christmas for my grandkids and friends. It took me a couple of tries to get the idea of how this works but, once it clicked, it was smooth sailing.
    Thank you for sharing this really wonderfully beautiful card.

  3. This a fantastic card, love the theme you chose. Everything about it is super.

  4. Wonderful color combo & how you’ve arched the sentiment on the front is great.

  5. Fabulous Fran, love how you shaped the words and also created your own words from dies.

  6. You should seriously consider adding “Loved” to the rating …. This is fabulous – while I have none of Karen’s dies, yes, I know!, several ideas ran though my head before I realized how you made this wonderful card…have to make a card for dear BIL who loves music…fab inspiration…thank you!

  7. Thanks, Carol!  You made my day.  Have a good time making a music card for you BIL.  There are a lot of great music ideas.  Hugs, Fran
