Bling on the Turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving, Alicia here today.  I don't know about you but this holiday just won't be the same without the large gatherings for food and fellowship.  I hope sending this card will brighten someone's holiday. At first glance it's a nice enough card with a neat cut away but wait for it...

Wow!  the Karen Burniston Pop n Swap die set really packs a punch.  The top turkey is just fine but as he disappears the bottom turkey appears all blinged out with glitter and other specialty papers.

The mechanism works super smooth, however there are a couple of tricks and tips to keep in mind.  The top pop up has a limited field of movement, be sure and test before adhering permanently.  I had to trim the bottom of the top frame.  Always check any movement for catch points before finalizing placement.  

I basically followed Karen Burniston's instructional video for this mechanism.  I even rounded the corners of my card.  I found that the best method for my first time working with this die set.  I can't wait to dream up more fun uses for this one!

I used the following products in my card:
Quick Quotes Autumn Blessings designer papers
Inside sentiment-misc fonts cut with a Cricut
misc papers

and from our store...
