London


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Maryann Einam our challenge hostess for the month continues to issue the challenges.

This week Maryann has asked us to create a card to celebrate a popular travel destination. Any place, town or country.



As you can see I decided to use London as the theme for my card this week. I purchased these stamps a couple of years ago when my youngest daughter moved over there to teach for a couple of years. I had to make her card to wish her good luck using some digital stamps as I discovered I didn't have any London/English themed stamps in my collection and of course I had to fix that ... and then I didn't use them haha!

So with this theme and the fact that two friends and my daughter have been there over the past few months these were more or less calling to be used :).



To create my card I used the new Karen Burniston Katherine Label Pop Up die set .... this is such a fun die set and the possibilities are endless.

When the card is closed you can see the label through the window .... mine has the cat holding onto the "underground" sign.




When you open the card, the label moves towards the top of the card. I kind of went a little crazy decorating the inside of this one! 



Here is another view of the inside of the card which I think makes it easier to see the position of the label on the card.


Here is a quick video to see my card in action.
