Hello and welcome once again to the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge. For December we were each asked to pick a theme and use the Fireplace Pop-Up Die. I chose Beach/Summer for my theme and came up with a tiki beach hut using the Fireplace Pop-Up Die as well as several other fantastic dies from Karen Burniston.Rectangles - Crosshatch dies in the largest size, cut 3 pieces from 110lb smooth white cardstock. Two of these pieces were used to create the beach theme on the inside and one was for the front.
I used the vine from the Monkey and Lion die set and added little flowers to it using the flower die from the Tiny Trees Pop-Up. For the background, I made the sun from the Tropical Scene set and the two palm trees came from the Palm Tree Pop-Up. I added details to everything using my Copic markers. I die cut the word "enjoy" from Word Set 6 - Summer, twice using yellow cardstock and black heavy weight cardstock. I glued them together to give the word some dimension and to bulk up the cardstock as it was very thin.
For the front of the card, I wanted to keep it simple, but still carry on the same theme. I die cut the waves and small beach hill with the palm trees on it from the Tropical Scene set and added the shark from the Sea Animals set. Then I die cut the words Hello and Sunshine from Word Set 6 - Summer. I cut the words three times each, once using colored cardstock and twice from black. This really makes the words pop out. I didn't put a lot of detail on the front because the inside of the card is the real surprise!
There are so many unique ways to use the Fireplace Pop-Up die and this is just one of many! I look forward to seeing all your creations on the Pop-Up Peeps Facebook page. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
