Hi everyone, this weekend on the Sizzix blog, they are featuring one of their very talented designers, Karen Burniston. Karen is the creator of the Pop 'N Cuts dies that create pop-up and interactive cards. With the card base die and different magnetic inserts, you can create different pop-up elements to your cards.
I created this card with the Base Die and the circle label insert, which is included with this die.
The large snowflake is an older Sizzix die, but it is one of my favorites. I've done this a few times with it; cutting it out of chipboard and patterned paper, inking the edges, then covering with clear micro beads. The other large snowflakes are cut from paper and acrylic(tinted with alcohol ink) using the Sizzix Bigz Snowflake Border die. The smaller ones are cut out from Sizzix's Snowflake#3 set. I topped them off with a snowflake charm.
Hope this inspires you to create your own pop-up cards. Don't forget to visit the Sizzix blog and the other Sizzix Designers for more Pop-Up inspiration! Also, you have until midnight (PST) Friday, November 9th to add a photo of your Pop 'N Cuts creation and/or leave a comment on the Sizzix blog for a chance to win a Pop 'N Cuts prize!
Have a great weekend,
