Hello! Well I've been a bit busy lately for various reasons - recovering from a hysterectomy, getting a Border Collie puppy, and having my missionary daughter come home after 18 months away, to mention a few!!
I do have a card for you today though, which uses Karen Burniston's Frame Pull Pop-up die set - a really versatile die set which creates a pop-up mechanism that you operate by pulling a little tab.
In this case, I put the pop-up part on the front of a normal opening card, so there was room for a while message inside.
This is what the card looks like when it's standing up normally, with the pop-up part closed.
The patterned papers and floral sticker I used are all from Carta Bella's Flora No 2 collection.
I used the little swirly decorative die, which comes from Karen's Charm Accordion set, for the corners.
When you lay the card flat and pull the tab, the top part of the pop-up mechanism opens up, revealing a smaller pop-up panel inside!
I decorated the inside of my pop-up section with a printed phrase from Cart Bella's Flora No 2 papers, and Karen's 'Thank You' die. I used an 's' from her 'Merry Christmas' die, to create 'Thanks' instead.
