What little girl doesn’t love a princess or three LOL? this is a card that a friend of mine asked me to make for her stepdaughters birthday. This is the first punch art card that I have posted. Punch art is using punches or dies together to create something different.

All of the cardstock, and ink, embossing plate (front panel), pink ribbon, circle dies, little flowers, circle punches (hair, faces, headbands), oval punch (cinderellas dress, belles hair, and headband), ornament punch (makes neck, chest & arms for all the princesses), little heart (mouths), little bit bigger heart (cut in half to make the pouffes on Cinderellas shoulders)are all from Stampin’ Up.
The Pop-Up mechanism is Karen Burnistons “Lots of Pops” which includes the poles and the flags. The dress bodices are dress dies that Karen created when she was part of the Stampin Up team, to create the puffy gowns I ran the dresses through my Scan n Cut, and enlarged them and trimmed them to line up with the bodices. The Bow (on Cinderellas dress) and the grass are also pieces from Karen’s collection.
The eyes were done by using a tear shape punch from the Martha Stuart collection and then drawn in with markers.
Wink of Stella gold was used to Highlight Belles dress, and Wink of Stella was used to highlight Cinderella and Auroras dresses.
The “Happy Birthday” greeting is from my Scan n Cut.
The ribbon and rhinestones are from my stache, probably dollar store finds.
To create the look on the front of the card first I cut the pink panel and cut out six circles in random sizes. I then adhered it to another panel the exact same size or a little smaller. I cut out different coloured circles the same sizes of which I cut out from the pink panel and adhered them into the holes to the backing piece of cardstock. I then ran it through my Big Shot with a Swirley patterned embossing plate (embossing folders will work as well). I then adhered that panel to the white panel, then to the blue card.
