Hello, and welcome back. My post today is a card I made for this week Crazy4Challenges challenge. Apparently March 8th is International Women’s Day, so the challenge was to include a women on the card. I included four 😊. I made a Thank you, Pop Up, gift card holder card.

I love how this colour combo turned out. If someone would have said I would combine Coral, Red, and Turquoise together I would have thought 😬😖 nope, but I really liked the striped paper I chose colours that closely matched the strips. The cardstock is all from Stampin Up, colours listed below. The patterned paper is from my stash, possibly Costco.
To make the card base and front.
This fun stamp is the Latte Love set from Art Impressions. I am NOT a colourist but I do try from time to time. I coloured these ladies with water colour pencils and water colour paper. I used the colours of the patterned paper as a colour pallet. I did make a little booboo, I got some reddish colour out side the lines so I made the background pink to try and camouflage it a little it.
To make the pop up mechanism I used the Coffee Cup Pop Up die set from Karen Burniston.
I have some photos of assembling the pop up mechanism, I recommend watching Karen’s VIDEO as she explains it the best.
I cut out the Coffee Charms from multiple colours and assembled. The “Thanks” die is retired Stampin Up and so is the banner. The nesting dies I have in my stash I believe I got those from a thrift store.
All the circle dies and the coffee beans all come from the Coffee Cup Pop Up set.

And believe it or not this is made from the Coffee Cup Pop Up die set Basketball pop up card
