Hello there everyone, it’s Sanna here with a Guest Designer project. But first, I´d like to congratulate everyone on the design team. It’s a great team to be part of! I feel very honored to be able to stay here and share crafty projects with you as a guest blogger. Today is my turn to share the first project, so let’s get started.
It’s time for another Elizabeth Craft Designs Designer Challenge with the Die Cut and Coloring Design Teams.
This month the challenge is …. Pop Up Cards using the General Pop Ups die set. It is always fun to open up a card that reveals something popped up inside and they are so easy to create when you have this remarkable die set. There are so many different options for creating pop up cards. Use just one die or combine multiple dies along the centre fold and create an endless array of fun pop-ups!
If you want even more ideas showing how to use the General Pop Ups die set, Els and Joset have two videos at Technique Friday with Els on YouTube. You can find Joset’s Birthday Pop-up here and Els’ Christmas Pop-up Card here.
For our Challenge today we are giving away a $20 Gift Card to use on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website to 3 winners.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post below and answer this question: What Elizabeth Craft Designs dies or stamp sets would you use with the General Pop-Ups die set if you were making a Pop-Up Card?
