Happy Holidays! card using Pop `n Cuts Multi-Tier Insert

I created this card for Karen Burniston’s Designer Challenge. Each designer is using a different insert and I picked the Multi-Tier Insert from Karen’s new Snippets collection. I love how it turned out, love the red with the white.

I combined the Multi-Tier Insert with two sets of thinlit dies and several Lawn Fawn Stamp sets.

For the front of the card, I used a border from the Banners & Borders Thinlits. I absolutely love the look of the swirls!!! The stamps are from two different Lawn Fawn sets, Critters in the Forest and Happy Everything.

On the inside of the card, I used the Labels & Stitched Frames. The stitches are the bomb! I used stamps from the Sweet Christmas Lawn Fawn set on the inside.

When I used the thinlit dies, I used the Magnetic Platform. I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll mention it again – it’s freaking fantastic!!!

You Make My Heart Melt | card

It’s November which means the fabulous Karen Burniston has issued a new challenge to a handful of designers. This months challenge was to create a project using the color red and one of her new stitched Framelits from her Snippets collection. I *love* the stitched framelits (they’re the bomb!) so of course I said yes. Remember that motivation I bought myself? This is what is was for! ;-)


For this card I used two dies from Karen’s new Snippets line. A die from the Labels & Stitched Frames set and the Gift Card Holder.

While creating this card, I got to use the Magnetic Platform for the first time. Holy awesomeness Batman! If you use the wafer thin dies, then you need this!



I love the stitched look… adore it actually. I stamped the cute snow man and sentiment from the Warm Hearts Paper Smooches stamp set. It’s so freaking cute I can’t stand it!



More cute stamps from the Warm Hearts set, I love those trees. I have to say, the Gift Card Holder was an excellent die for Karen to design. I send out a lot of gift cards and it’s nice to be able to pretty them up instead of having them just rattling around inside a card.

I am really loving how this card turned out. I love that it looks like it has dimension even though it isn’t a pop up card. Karen’s has plenty of dies that can be used as stand alone dies and they helped decorate my card perfectly.
