Sorry I’ve been MIA, but I’m here with a fun card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge blog. I did make this card back in July, my mom was quite ill and this is a card I made for her. I haven’t had the chance to post it yet, and it just happens to fit this weeks challenge which is ……… to create a slimline card. Slimline cards have become quite popular these days so Karen Burniston came up with an alternative design for her Circle Tagbook Pop up die set, and I couldn’t wait to give it a go. This is my version…..
All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.

The cardstock is all from Stampin Up, the colours used are Soft Seafoam, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Garden Green, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, and Pool Party. The polka dot paper is from my stash, possibly from Costco
I used Karen Burnistons Circle Tag Book die set. I did take photos of my progress as a guide but I highly recommend watching Karen’s Slimline Circle Tag book pop up card VIDEO when trying to make this card.
I have a little bit of tape on the back of my dies as it helps to make the score lines more visible.
I used the different circle dies from the same die set to cut the frames and circles below. The stamps are retired Stampin up.
Most of the flowers and leaves cut are from the Flower Pot pop up die set and the Woven Basket Pop up die set The ivy leaves and the curly fine I bought from a thrift store so I am not sure who makes those.
Now for the front
The Argyle Bordrer Blends are also a Karen Burniston die set.
