Karen Burniston and Pear Blossom Press Collaboration Blog Hop


Thank you so much for hopping along with us on the Karen Burniston and Pear Blossom Press Collaboration Hop! Be sure to comment along the way to be entered to win one of two great prizes: Snowman Twist Circle Die Set with a 5-pack of EZ-Lights, or 
Cake Pop-Up Die Set with a 5-pack of EZ-Lights!  

I was so excited when I heard that the Karen Burniston design team would be collaborating with the Pear Blossom Press design team on this blog hop.  I have become somewhat addicted to those EZ Lights that Pear Blossom Press has just released.  And they work so well with the Karen Burniston Pop-Up dies.  You can just feed the wires up through the pop-up mechanisms on your card to create some pretty cool effects.

I have made a bunch of cards using them, two of which I am showing in today's hop.  The first one uses the House Pivot Panels die, along with the Twist Panel die.  The front of the card is pretty simple -- just the snowdrift and deer from the Outdoor Scene die set, along with Crosshatch Ovals and a sentiment from Word Set 3 - Holiday.


When you open the card, that's where all the action takes place.


In addition to the houses, I added some trees from the Evergreen Pivot Panels and another greeting.  Do you see that sign down at the bottom that says, "Push Here"?  When you push it, magic happens.


I made a short video showing my card in action.


My second card is also a Christmas card.  I started by using the Karen Burniston Christmas Pop Stand, but I couldn't get it to cooperate.  So I salvaged the light-wired trees and used the pop-out mechanism from the Tree Pop-Up.  This worked much better.


This video shows the trees lighting up.
