Digital Tuesday Challenge 'Use a Die Cut'

Hello and welcome to another Digital Tuesday Challenge. This week's challenge is hosted by ME and I chose to challenge our readers to make a card or project using a die cut. It could be as simple as using a Spellbinders Nestability frame on your card, or a die cut flower, embellie, whatever! Our sponsor this week is MyGrafico and they are giving away 1 digital set and 20% an in-store purchase.

The designers were given this adorable "Alice's Tea Party" digi set by Zenware Designs to use for the challenge, and I thought all the images were so cute that I had to use as many of them as possible on one card! LOL! So I decided to create a Pop Up card!
I started off by making my card front. I used a Spellbinder's Nestablity die that looks like pages from a book. I thought it fit perfectly for my story book element. I cut several die cuts, sponged the edges, and layered them, gluing only the 'spine' to the card base. I then just hand cut and colored all my images and adhered them to the pages of the 'book'. The designer paper is from Crafty Secrets, and the sentiment is computer generated. Here is a side view of the card:

And here is the inside of the card partially open so you can see how the 'pop up' element works. I got the directions from Splitcoaststampers.com/.

Here is a full view of the inside of the card.

And finally a close up of the images. Aren't these 'Alice' images just too cute?

I hope you enjoyed my special project today. If you'd like to play along in the challenge this week simply click on the Digital Tuesday Challenge Blinkie in my sidebar and it will take you directly to the Challenge Site with further instructions.
Have a great day! Amy
