As promised this morning, I am back with another card for this month's Karen Burniston Designer Challenge. This time round the theme Karen has given us is Red, White or Blue - no, we're not doing patriotic cards, we're doing single color cards. This is the all-white, all-red or all-blue challenge. You may mix in a little bit of a neutral, like silver, gold, kraft or black, but we needed to try to keep it primarily single-color.
In my previous last two blog posts I have shared my “Red” card and “White” card for this challenge which you can see by scrolling down to the previous post. So this time round I am sharing …. you guessed it my “Blue” card.
For my card I have created an Accordion card using the Circle Accordion Card and Fancy Label Accordion Card designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I decorated the edges of each page using the Square with Circle Frame Edges and Fancy Seasons Frame Edges.
I decorated the two end panels using the Crystal Flower Set 1 which I die cut Light Blue Metallic Shimmer Sheetz. I then used the Crystal Flower Overlay Set 2 to die cut Double Sided Adhesive/Card and the covered the flowers with Soft Teal Silk Microfine Glitter. For the centre of the flowers I added Blue/Gold Glitter Dots which I added in a cluster, i saw this idea done by someone else (not sure who) so had to try it.
The Happy Birthday sentiments was also die cut from Double Sided Adhesive/Card and then covered with Soft Teal Silk Microfine Glitter. I then embellished each flower using the Flourish with Flowers die.
Here is my card when it is folded 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.
