Happy Grandparents Day - Karen Burniston Photo Collage Pop-Up

 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.

For the front of the card, I used the same background patterned paper, but added a pink strip of patterned paper as well. I added some white ribbon to hide the seam between the two different pattered papers. 

I added three additional photos to the front and also added some of the fun clip and pins die cuts that also comes with the Photo Collage Pop-Up. 

I used the xoxo from the Word Set 9 - Love die set and cut that twice to add down the side. I used glitter gel on both of these to add some dimension. 

The final product is a very beautiful card for two wonderful Grandparents. My parents were thrilled with this card and just loved how the pictures popped out. This would be great for a Mother's or Father's Day card. 

Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
