Photo Collage Pop-Up Thank You Card

Hurray! It's Karen Burniston's Design Team's 'Designer Challenge' today, with the theme of 'Picture This!', where we get to incorporate a photo into our cards. 

This new Photo Collage Pop-Up die set (from Karen Burniston's latest release, available for pre-order) is such a cool and versatile set! I mean just look at the gorgeous little instant photo frames, realistic little bull dog clips, and fantastic amount of dimension that's created when you open the card!! You could fill these frames with anything!

I used papers from the Kaisercraft 'Blessed' 6.5 x 6.5 pad, plus some gold foiled card stock. The printed tags come in the same pad. I wanted a thank you/friendship themed card for a really dear friend of mine, who has always been super supportive, but especially in these past crazy few months. The die set lends itself to adding some real photos into the little picture frames, which I would have loved to do, but most of my stuff is currently in storage!!

Also on this card, I used hearts from the Katherine Label Pop-Up die set, and I added 'A&H' (my friend's and my initials), with dies from the Alphabet and Numbers sets.

The inside of the card is pretty busy, so I kept the card front quite simple, with a label from the Katherine Label Pop-Up die set, and the Thank You die.

Karen Burniston New Dies Release: Family Room Pop-Up

I've been away from crafting for a few months while we have been moving house. Things haven't gone exactly according to plan, and we still haven't moved into our final house in Cornwall, but I have set up a craft space in our current rental home!

Karen Burniston has a fabulous new release of die sets, which will be shipping on 15th July, but are available for pre-order now. I used the new Family Room Pop-Up die set for this card, and I love it! How ridiculously cute is this little furniture set?!

I used papers from DCWV's 12x12 Copper Luxury pad, and fussy cut the succulents and flower in the bottom right hand corner.

I used the Ovals - Crosshatch set for the rug, and Karen's Thank You die. This card is a Thank You to my friend who is renting us the beautiful house we're staying in at the moment.
The borders were made using the Border Blends - Argyle die set.

I also used another set from the new release, Memory Charms, to make the little picture frame on the card front.
