Karen Burniston Snowman/Soccer Pop Up card

Good morning, Alicia here today, getting geared up for school and fall sports.  My son has played soccer since he was 3 so this card will be for him.  Last month I purchased the some of the latest Karen Burniston die sets.  I am so pleased with these sets.  Of course with any new die, I cut all the pieces first on plain white card stock.  This tip is especially helpful with a pop up die to familiarize oneself with the mechanism.  It is really so awesome to have such a handy pop up in a die. I can't wait to create more fun cards with this set.

So this die set contains all the elements for a snowman, but it is basically just circles with a few snowman accessories.  As soon as I saw it in person, I knew a soccer ball would work great in the pop up.  Isn't so fun?

The set comes with plenty of circles for layering.  I used a soccer ball shaker sticker in the center layer on a circle embossed like soccer netting and finally layered a stitched die of "grass" and one more black layer for pop!

The  Die Versions Soccer border die is no longer available (it was one of my first purchases from Dies R Us). I do have some helpful tips that would work with any number of dies.  This is only one die but I created a multilayered piece.  I did this by cutting the die several times in different papers.  No need to waste paper, when I only need the cones, I placed a small piece of orange paper just large enough to cut out the cones.  Same with the tiny sliver of "reflective" tape, with these tiny pieces I put them in place and used a tape runner on the back side to hold the slivers in place.  Once I was done piecing the cuts back together, I popped up the cones and ball on pop dots for extra dimension.
