Karen Burniston February Designer Challenge Day 2

Hi everyone,

As promised yesterday, I am  back with another card for this month's Karen Burniston Designer Challenge. This time round the theme for our challenge is "Artsy or Cutesy" - Which way will you go? Feel free to do both. Cards should lean very artsy fartsy, with inks and textures and quotes about the soul (or whatever) OR very cutesy, like puppies and kittens and rainbows and sprinkles.

As much as I enjoyed creating my Artsy card for yesterdays post, I am a Cutesy girl at heart.

Today I am sharing a baby card I created using the new Star Accordion die set. I also used the new co-ordinating Star Buddies Peel Off Stickers to decorate my card ... I love love love these new Peel Off Stickers ... they are just the cutest thing ever!!!!!!!!! Look at that cute Owl; Koala / Bear and Monkey!

Here is a close up of the first two pages of my Star Accordion Card.  I used the new Star Fancy Frame Edges to decorate each of the pages. As you can see I alternated the pink and lavender pages.

At both ends of my accordion I have added the Paris Edges and used the Alphabet 1 - Caps die set to add another greeting to my card. 

Here are the last two pages of my accordion card. On the last page I added the "Its a Girl" using the new It's a Boy/Girl die.  I also added the Gold Glitter Star Border along the edge of the join of the accordion page and the Paris Edges. 

Here is my card closed ready to be popped into an envelope .... as you can see I added the word "Baby" again on the Paris Edges panel.

If you are looking to purchase Karen's Pop It Ups dies in Australia you can find them at Craft Giraffe (formerly Photo Continental). 
A little birdie told me that all the new release products arrived last week!
