C4C329 - Celebrate

Welcome to another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge. Frances is back with our final challenge of the month.

According to the Days of the Year web site the 26th March is Purple Day.  Purple Day is a celebration aimed at raising worldwide awareness of epilepsy, a condition that affects over 65 million people globally. For our challenge this week include the color purple in your creations.

Today I have managed to tick off another card that I have been wanting to make since I saw the idea in December 2014. A explosion pop up card. You can see Karen's birthday explosion on this link . 

After die cutting the pop up cake and trimming it like Karen does in her tutorial, I cut out the embellishments added the double sided tape and micro fine glitter and coloured the pieces with copic pens.
I made stickers out of the die cut words by adding double sided tape on the back before die cutting.


A Close up of the cake, I covered card stock with double sided tape, then die cut the embellishment pieces and added the silk micro fine glitter and coloured some pieces with purple copic pens, and used foil card for the cake stand.

Here is the front of the card, I didn't have those small magnets that Karen used and anything that I had wasn't strong enough, so I attached a ribbon to keep the card closed.
