Karen Burniston Campfire and Smores Pop Up for Dies R Us

 It's a Sweet Hello! Complete with a campfire and yummy gooey smores. Tis the season for outdoor fun and today I used several Karen Burniston die sets to create this fun pop up.  On the front I used nesting dies to frame words and the pieced smores with a sprinkle of marshmallows.

The details on the smores are impeccable right down to the dots in the graham crackers.

And on the inside...a pop up campfire accented with marshmallows on a stick.  The sentiment completes on the inside.

Still perfecting the pop up fire.  One of Karen's suggestions is to color the empty fold space.  That's the easy step, the stones aren't too hard either but getting the fire to pop up properly is the tricky part.  It's always best to adhere one side firmly, then add glue to the "loose" side and close the card on it.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:

Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog. There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store. For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.*logo%2Bcollage.pages.jpg

  1. This is beyond fabuous! What an inspiring awesome - and entirely adorable - idea.

    S'more are, hands down, one of my all-time favourite sweet treats. It's probably a good thing we don't have a firepit in our backyard, as I might end up eating my weight in s'mores if we did (lol!).

    Big hugs & the sunniest of Lammas season blessings!
