Karen Burniston Pop it Ups Designer Challenge - Characters!

Today I'm blogging on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog with the August Designer Challenge, which is to use any of the three Character Dies (plus Props 1) for a project of any type. Make sure you click over to the ECD blog to see all the amazing projects by the Designer Challenge Team.

For my project I am teaching how to use the new Spiral Circle Pull Card die for a fun card featuring Poppy the Owl, Props 1 and the All Seasons Tree dies. (clickable supply links at the end of this post

Here is the video tutorial. The first part shows the basics of using the SCPC die, the middle part shows some of the decorated samples by the DC team and the third part shows how to make this specific card.


For this card I cut the spiral from a transparency so the heart tree is visible in the closed position.


Open the card and the spiral expands, lifting the hearts into the air and revealing additional hearts behind them. Poppy the Owl also flips over, revealing a second Poppy for inside the card and exposing the greeting block.


You can see the flying hearts on the spiral in this side view:


My thought is that this would make a great back-to-school card for a child.
