Pop It Cards with Guest Artist Karen Burniston – $35
March 27, 2014 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM$35
You know what’s cool about pop-up cards? Everything! They’re fun to make and everyone loves receiving them. They are the ultimate card trick and thanks to Karen Burniston’s background in engineering, you won’t be taxed with any tricky measuring or geometry. Instead, you’ll use Pop it Ups dies, designed by Karen for Elizabeth Craft Designs. These wafer-thin dies, made in the USA, can be used in most die cutting machines and you’ll get from paper to pop-up in 30 seconds, allowing plenty of time for the fun stuff . . . decorating! Plus, the decorator dies come included in each die set! How’s that for easy? In this class you’ll make four interactive cards in a variety of all-purpose themes. You’ll learn all the tips and tricks for creating dynamic interactive cards that are sure to impress.

Students should bring these supplies: (Updated 3/6/14)
- Scissors (I suggest regular scissors for ribbon, etc., and detail scissors for cutting out the peel-off stickers. I recommend Elizabeth Craft Designs detail scissors)
- Adhesives, adhesives, adhesives! – tape runner, fine line glue pen, strong red-liner tacky tape (1/4″ width is best), mini glue dots and pop dots.
- Sanding tool
- Optional: small stapler (some students like to reinforce their Accordion Album connection tabs with small staples. I like the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.)
- Optional: inks for edges on cards (if they like that look) I recommend a brown for the birthday card and pink for the butterfly card. I did not ink the other two cards, but any of the colors in the cards would look great for inking.
- Optional: markers or colored pencils for coloring the cake and the roses. This will be assigned as homework, but some speedy students may want to do some coloring in class.
- Optional: tweezers can be very helpful for placing the word Peel-offs (I recommend Elizabeth Craft Designs tweezers)
- Optional: a camera or smart phone for taking photos of the sample cards
- Recommended: print out the card photos and bring them to class so you have a large copy to refer to
