Get Well Pop It Ups Card With Poppy the Owl Die Cuts by Karen Burniston Elizabeth Crafts Designs

Stamper's Ink, one of our LSS, sponsored demos and classes by Karen Burniston recently. It was a treat to finally be able to meet Karen and take one of her classes to learn techniques in how to do her Pop It Up dies. I've been a fan of her pop up cards for years and the class was amazing! Karen brought more sample cards than I've ever seen (they filled more than three long tables) and she had a lot of tips and tricks to show us.

My Sister-in-law's Mother suffered a stroke recently and I wanted to do a special get well card of encouragement for her. I was so inspired by Karen's class I decided to do one of her Pop It Up dies and one of her character dies.

The front of the card uses a Spellbinders Die Set. See the end of the post for details for this and details about paper used.
This shows the close up of the Owl die cut. I did not have any Elizabeth Craft Silk Microfine Glitter so I used Tim Holtz glitter on the glasses. It worked, but I think his glitter is too coarse for something with such delicate features. I'm looking forward to trying the Elizabeth Craft glitter next time.
One of the best features of the Karen Burniston Pop It Ups dies is the many additional dies you get in the die set. Both labels, including the stitching one, and the small banner held by the owl are included in the set.
