Karen Burniston March Designer Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone,

It's time for our March Karen Burniston Designer Challenge. This time round the theme for our challenge is Make 'em Laugh! - Funny cards for any theme. Here's a chance for you to use all those funny stamps you have, or make up your own geetings - you decide! 

For my card today I have decided to create an Accordion card. I used the Rectangle Accordion Card die set and the Katie Stars Frame Edges designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Normally this accordion card is in portrait form, but using Karen Burniston's YouTube instructions I was able to change the format to landscape form. You can see Karen's video here

Here is a closer look at the first two pages of my Accordion Card, the bear cooking a BBQ is from Lili of the Valley. The sentiment is one of the Funny Bones sentiments from Riley and Company.

Here is a closer look at the last page of my Accordion card, this time round I used the Sausage Snatcher from Lili of the Valley, I think it works perfect with that sentiment haha!

And here is a look at 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 Craft Giraffe (formerly 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, plus an amazing card/video tutorial from Karen Burniston.
