Pop 'n Cuts 'Front Porch' Thank You Card

You know you have lots of lovely family and friends when you work out how many post-Christmas Thank You cards you want to make!

Here's one I made today using some of my beautiful new stash...

I'd asked Scott if I could put in a big order with from America, for my Christmas present.. and I did! And I mean big! I'll show you it little by little, as I make different projects with it. My card today uses some lovely papers, cardstock stickers, and chipboard from the Front Porch collection by American Crafts.

I used Karen Burniston's A2 card base, with the Multi-Tier insert, and also used her Flagpole with Lantern and Sign die. 
I have to tell you that I am in possession of Karen's new Pop It Ups die range in conjunction with Elizabeth Craft Designs, and you will LOVE them!! I cannot wait to be able to show you just what they can do... Have a look at some preview videos and pictures on Karen's blog here!
 This was a pretty simple card - the chipboard and stickers make life very easy, and I just made a string of bunting between the poles.
 For the lower border I also used a die from Karen's Banner and Borders Thinlits set, and some Stampin' Up ribbon.
I also added a quick card front, with more Front Porch papers and stickers, and an Eileen Hull die.

Some of products used:



  1. Very pretty!
