Ever since I saw the Joy of Crafting episode showing the new pop-up word dies, I've been waiting anxiously for them to get to Ben Franklin Crafts. They finally made it to the Hilo store and I was so excited that I bought lots of the different pop-up die inserts and forgot to buy the die set that had the card base. LOL! (Be sure you look carefully and buy what you need to create a pop-up card.) Anyway, the first card I'm showing you is one I made using the "Hello" insert Sizzix die, the pop-up card base die, and the 'Birds on a Wire' Sizzlet strip die. The card stock that I used were American Crafts double-sided ones (from my scrap bin). I discovered that the pop-up interior part of the card did not fit my 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card blank so I cut off the extra from the top and rounded the corners with a corner punch. Also the popped out word 'Hello' was not easily read so I die cut just the word from solid blue paper and glued it over the 'Hello' before the whole piece was taped into the card. Because this was the first card I made with the new dies, it took me awhile to figure it all out, but I was very satisfied with the results. In fact, I immediately began another pop-up card. Visit this blog site again to see how it came out. Crafting keeps you healthy.....REALLY!
