Pop it Ups Glittery Eiffel Tower Card

Hi all! Today I'm sharing another card I created for CHA using Karen Burniton's new Pop it Ups dies release. You may have seen the card I shared last week where I used the new Eiffel Tower Pop Stand die and made a gatefold card with the Eiffel Tower standing up. The great thing about this die set is that the Eiffel Tower can be used apart from the Pop Stand! For this card I decided to combine it with Karen's Lots of Pops die set to make this glittery, spring-y, pastel card.

To glitter the Eiffel Tower, I first applied an Elizabeth Craft Designs adhesive sheet to a piece of kraft cardstock. I diecut the paper, peeled of the release paper and then applied my glitter. It's amazing how easy and tidy it is to apply glitter this way! The little bunting was made with the banner and pole dies that are included in the Lots of Pops set. The small tag is from Karen's Tag Pivot Card set (wait 'til you see the card I made with that one!) and the hello is from the Accordion Rectangle Card set.

Since the main action is on the inside of this card, I kept the outside simple. The paper I used is all from My Mind's Eye Up and Away collection, which apparently has been discontinued. :( I found a 6x6 pad at Michaels so you may still be able to find it there. I might have to stock up - I love this paper!

The video shows how sparkly the ECD Microfine glitter it. Just gorgeous! I think this would make a perfect birthday, thank you,  or Mother's Day card.

The products I used can be found at Elizabeth Craft Designs and Simon Says Stamp via the links below.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed this pretty Parisian card. I have so many ideas for this die set - I can't wait to share them with you!
