Karen Burniston October Designer Challenge Card 1


Hi everyone,

It's time for our October Karen Burniston Designer Challenge, this time round the theme Karen has given us is Make it Manly! - cards for the men and boys in our lives.

For my card today I have created an Accordion Card using the Katie Label Accordion Card Die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. For the centre page of my card I used the Katie Stars Frame Edges die set.

I know Father’s Day is a long way away …. even longer down here seeing it was just last month in September, but I figured I would get a head start on cards I need to create for next year.

The image on the centre panel is from Penny Black designed by Mo Manning.


Here is the front of my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope.

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

Don't forget to check out the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog on Wednesday when you will be able to see what all the designers created for the challenge this month. I will also be back tomorrow with another card to share with you for this challenge.

Paper: White; Kraft; Red; Navy; That’s My Boy DP – Echo Park
