First Chair Pop 'n Cut

Good morning friends!

First of all, today is the day that Karen Burniston does her Sizzix Blog post ... check it out later this morning HERE.   All the designer projects - and links - in one handy post, as well as Karen's project for the challenge! Hold onto your hats and be prepared to be amazed and inspired!

Secondly - today's card is a Pop 'n Cut card ... and that makes SIXTY Pop 'n Cut posts on my blog! Can you tell I'm a big fan of Pop 'n Cut dies?

Finally, onto today's share.  When I get a great new die, usually the first card I make a card gets sent to my Mom.

Karen Burniston's 'chair' insert for the Pop 'n Cut bases is one of those great new dies. And I made a card for my Mom. Just a simple card, but I knew she'd get a kick out of the chair pop out portion.  I used a 12 x 12" patterned paper for the decoration part. The little critter on the front of the card is from the bottom left of the paper.


The clouds, grass and bird are from the right hand side of the sheet. I cut the chair portion again using red paper, and attached it over the pop up chair that cut with the cloud piece.  I also attached a small piece of the same patterned paper over the opening behind the chair, to make everything but the red 'disappear'.


I added a die cut label to pen a note on, and sent it on it's way ...


Gregg's sister and brother-in-law frequent the Miskoka's, so I'm planning on using this chair die for their birthday cards next year.

(Remember you can always see my Sizzix Flip-it, Pop N Cut and Accordion Flip cards by looking on the right side of my blog under LABELS then scrolling down to the 'S' section.)


Supplies used:
A2 Pop 'n Cut Base with the 3-D Chair insert - Karen Burniston (Sizzix)
