Karen Burniston August Designer Challenge Card 3


Hi everyone,

As promised this morning I am back with yet another card for this month’s Karen Burniston’s Designer Challenge. This time round the theme Karen has given us is Hoppy, Poppy & Chilly - any theme, any style, any type of project (pop-up, or flat, or 3D or party favor or layout or ...?) using the character/animal dies.

Scroll down to my previous two posts if you missed out on seeing my cards for this month challenges where I used Poppy the Owl and Hoppy the Frog. Of course I couldn't let Chilly the Penguin miss out on all the fun :)

Check out the Elizabeth Crafts Designs blog on Wednesday when you will be able to see what all the designers created for the challenge this month, plus Karen Burniston will have another of her amazing video tutorials for us.


I think all of the cards I have made using Chilly the Penguin have been Christmas cards so far! Of course Penguins can be used all year round, so today I decided to create a Birthday Card.

This time round I have created a Pivot Card using the Evergreen Pivot Card die set, again this die set can be used for any occasion not just Christmas. To decorate the front I added a piece of card over the fold which has been embossed using the Heart Strings Embossing Folder.

I used the Happy Birthday Stand Up Helper to create the sentiment on the top right hand side of my card. I die cut the sentiment 5 times to create a raised sentiment.


 Here you can see the inside of my card. After die cutting the card base using the Evergreen Pivot Card die set I die cut the three individual trees also included in the set, embossing the trees with the designs on the dies.

I used the snow from the Outdoor Edges die set to create the snow at the bottom of the card. I added Double Sided Adhesive Paper to white card and then used the snow die to die cut this and then added the Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.

The snowflakes were created using the snowflake die included in the All Seasons Tree die set. I then added a Transparent/Gold Glitter Dot to the centre of each snowflake.


 Here is a close up of the left side of my card. Here you can see one of the Chilly the Penguin images I created. This was created using Black Velvet Adhesive Sheet, White Velvet Adhesive Sheet and Yellow Velvet Adhesive Sheet.

I used the Props 1 die set to create the hat and glasses. The glasses were die cut using Double Sided Adhesive Paper and then added Lavender Silk Microfine Glitter.  I also added a Purple/Silver Glitter Dot to each side of the glasses.


Here is a close up view of the right side of my card. I added another penguin, adding the bow from the Props 1 die set.

The birthday sentiment at the top right hand corner of the card was computer generated. I used the fishtail label from the Lorna Label Pop Up to die cut the sentiment.


Here is the back of my card, I love how the back of this style of card also has some interest to it.

If you are looking to purchase Karen’s Pop It Ups dies in Australia you can find them at Photo Continental.
