Over time, I've collected several Hello Kitty coloring books, just so I can use the images to create cutting files for paper projects like this one. Lawn Fawn's "Stitched Hillside Borders" die was used to cut the grassy background; and all other cuts including the oval shape were cut on the Silhouette. "Happy Birthday" greeting is from Lawn Fawn's "Party Animal" stamp set.

If you know how much I truly love my ice cream and teddy bears, you'll understand how excited I was to be able to see my idea come to life, lol! Yes, this Karen Burniston Parcel Pop Up die mechanism is fast becoming a favorite with me. Hope I can continue to dream up more fun ways to use it!

I had just enough time to finish a second graduation card this year; this one for my cousin's son. Since I was happy with how the first graduation card for my niece turned out (previous post), I decided to use Karen Burniston's Rockin' Rectangle pop up die again to animate this card as well.
I added glittery gold cardstock on the inside of the card and the graduate silhouette and sentiment panels were attached to the Rockin' Rectangle mechanism.
As the card is opened, the graduate silhouette panel pops forward and moves to the right to reveal the sentiment panel underneath. I enjoyed putting these graduation cards together this year; my only regret is that I wish I had gotten started sooner so I could have finished more of these in time for all the graduates on our list. Will definitely consider doing a repeat of this card style for our graduates next year.
