Happy Birthday Pop Up Card, with Honey the Bear - New Karen Burniston dies for Elizabeth Craft Designs

I made this card for my niece Kirsten, with some of the new dies from Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs - the Happy Birthday Pop Up Card (eeekkk!!!! I LOVE this one, and will use it loads!!), the Honey the Bear die set, and the Props 2 die set (for the party hat).

You can see Honey the Bear better here - I added a couple of details with a fine Sharpie pen, and Signo Uniball White pen. The present in from the Evergreen Pivot die set.

I love the Happy Birthday script dies, which can fit onto the background base die cut, or be used separately. Two sizes of stars come in the Happy Birthday die set too, which fit around the Happy Birthday.
I cut the Happy Birthday Pop Up die into the brown stripy paper first, then did another die cut in some pink chevron paper, from which I cut out the pop-out part of the card, and glued onto the brown stripy base.

For Kirsten's name, I used stickers on acetate, which I attached with my pink ATG glue runner to the front panel - you can see it better here:

I used Tim Holtz's Crescent Moon and Stars Bigz die for the other larger stars, and sequins from Stampin' Up.

  1. Wonderful card. Such happy colors and all the details are a visual treat!

  2. Hi, love this card, how did you keep the star row from cutting where the name is?

    1. Hi! The star row is a separate die, so it's optional whether you use it or not.
