Karen Burniston's January Designer Challenge - Pivot & Accordion Mixed Card

Karen Burniston's idea for the Designer Challenge Team this month is to use Pop It Up dies from three categories on one project. For my card, I chose to use a pivot die (the brand new Tags Pivot die), an Accordion die (the new Accordion Rectangle), and a couple of Karen's cute new Character dies - Whisker the Cat and Buster the Dog.

I made the Pivot part of the die as usual, cutting the Tags Pivot into a piece of card stock the same height as the Accordion Rectangle panels. I then just added an Accordion panel to each, leaving the inner part of the panels free-floating.

I used the Katie Stars Frame Edges, to cut out card stock with Elizabeth Craft Designs Double-sided tape on the back (makes it so much easier to stick down intricate die cuts!)
I also used some chipboard stickers.

The clouds are from the All Seasons Tree die set, and the grass die is from the Outdoor Edges set.
The Happy Birthday is from the Happy Birthday PopUp card.

Some of the products used:



  1. Really cute! And those colors are yummy!

  2. Your card is delightful and the colors are so happy. Love the way you have incorporated the pivot in the accordion. So cute.
