Hello and welcome! Todays card features not only my amazing parents and amazing kiddos, but it also features Karen Burniston's Photo Collage Pop-Up! I've had this die set in my collection for a while and to be honest, it kind of intimidated me. All those little photos, I thought for sure it would be complicated. Boy, was I wrong! This was actually a pretty easy mechanism to make and the end result is just WOW! It certainly made my parents day!
For this card, I started with an A2 sized card using a dark gray cardstock. I die cut patterned paper using Karen Burniston's Rectangle - Crosshatch dies in the largest rectangle.
Where I live, we don't have a place that you can print the small little photos like she shows in her how-to videos, so I printed them from home and sized the photos down so they would fit into the little polaroid looking frames.
I wanted to keep this card a simple as possible, so I just went with smooth white cardstock for the photo frames. I die cut the mechanism from the same cardstock as the card base.
I die cut the word Happy from the Happy Birthday word die from Karen Burniston and I also cut the hugs and kisses from Karen Burniston's Word Set 9 - Love. I added some sparkle gel to both words. I had to print out the "Grandparent's Day" sentiment, which I cut and added to my card.
