Sizzix Pop 'n Cuts Pie Card

Well, it's our 17th Wedding Anniversary today, and we were all going to spend the day hiking in the Malvern Hills, but with heavy snow forecast all day, and the temperature not reaching above zero, that got put on hold! Time for some crafting, instead...
I've always liked the old red Sizzix Pie die, but never got round to using it - I set myself the challenge to make a card with it.
I used the Sizzix PNC base die, with Thanks insert, and made an extra pop-up part on top of the 'Thanks' section, by cutting two slits and folding that section the opposite way. (I cut a section out of the doily, to fit round it.)
 The steam wisps, and cherry were cut with Cricut's 'Country Life' Cartridge. I also used 'Scallops' On the Edge die, a 'Thanks Set' Sizzlit for the inner Thanks lettering, and I just typed the sentiment on Word and printed it out.
 I'm adding this to the Inspiration Emporium's 'Add a Little P.O.P.' challenge.

  3. Happy Anniversary Helen!!

    Your card is just fantastic, it's almost like receiving a home baked pie it's that delectable! I'm sure after this card that you just may be using that pie die a little more often!!
