Karen Burniston Happy Camper Tent Pop Up card

Hello Happy Camper!  Tis the season for outdoor fun and today I am using several Karen Burniston die sets to create this fun summer card.  On the front I used nesting dies to frame the sentiment and lantern cuts.  I used ink to color the "light" in the lantern.

I love a good pop up and the tent does not disappoint. I used the Karen Burniston Pop Up Tent assembly video to get started.  I found the perfect paper, however, it was not double sided as Karen suggested.  I used blue ink to color the tent flaps.  I added brads to hold them back.  The die cut provides the holes. The cut also has the holes for the twine to go through the tent.  I used more brads to secure the "ropes".

The fire is also a pop up included in the tent pop up set.  The stump and the attaching mechanism are also included in the set.  I used vellum for the pop up mechanism to lessen the visibility. To have a pop up on the other side, simply reverse the folds. 

The small lantern is from the Karen Burniston Camping Charms.
