Make It Monday #171: Pop Up Die Cuts ~ Card 1


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and popped up die cuts.

First of all I want to say that I think NO design team member should EVER be allowed to use Life is Beautiful on a MIM!!!
SERIOUSLY! If you have Life is Beautiful, did you not want to use it??? 
But NO, I don't want to copy Betsy's amazing card. I MUST find another suitable die!
After I got up off the floor from my tantrum...

I had to come up with something different.
I am also quite smitten with Delicate Details.

This worked pretty well. I did need to make it landscape, not my favorite orientation!

I have another one to post but I WILL be making one with Life is Beautiful!
I HAVE to!!!

Thank you for looking at my blog!


  1. This is very pretty. But, I think it's ok for you to use Life is Beautiful! ;)

  2. Susan, in complete agreement with you! Only WE should be able to use Life is Beautiful! (tee hee!) But your card is clever and beautifully done, even without the butterfly! And the Delicate Details is the perfect choice!

  3. I completely understand about not wanting to copy Betsy's MIM card sample. That was why I went searching through my dies for something different like you. I really like this Delicate Details die for the challenge. Yore card is beautiful!!

  4. Love that you found another die that works so great.... I don't have a Life Is Beautiful so I will also have to find something else that works!!

  5. Hey Susan, the Life is Beautiful set is the best ever!! That is my go to set for everything. Your card is fantastic. I love how you used another die to achieve the same look. I really like this die, I have to look into it. Great job. Shhh, I can't wait to see what you make with the Life is Beautiful die set.

  6. Great job holding yourself back from using the Life is Beautiful set...I failed miserably! (but in my own defense, it was the butterfly or a snowflake, and I needed a birthday card, so....) But anyway, I do really like your card and am having to re-think purchasing that die! :0)

  7. This is fantastic! Love this technique with that dainty frame! Great look!
