Merry and Bright

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  Today I am sharing a Twist and Pop card using Karen Burniston Pop Up and Twist Dies along with Kaisercraft papers that are left over from some kits for a Getaway in a couple of weeks.  I do love blue for Christmas and monochromatic is perfect with the pop of red - very festive!

The card front has been cut/embossed using the image from the Kaisercraft patterned paper and one of my favourite dies - the Spellbinders Nestabilities Hemstitch Squares Etched Dies Romancing the Swirl Becca Feeken and the  Platinum Die Cutting Machine .

The card front has been adhered onto a slightly larger pre-cut white card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.

The Pop up sentiment is such a lovely surprise when the card is opened. The Kathryn Labels have been layered and is a pretty touch.  

The Pop up sentiment is such a lovely surprise when the card is opened. The Kathryn Labels have been layered and is a pretty touch.  I have used the Karen Burniston Katherine Label Pop Up for the inside label and Pop Up and Twist Mechanism.  The sentiment circle has been cut from the Kaisercraft papers,along with the nostalgic image on the inside of the card front.  The flower is from Little Birdie Crafts and the beautiful red pearls are from Want2ScrapThe little scalloped strip is from the Karen Burniston Tag Pop Up Book Die.

You can find Karen's Video Tutorial HERE - it is so easy to follow.
