Karen Burniston November Designer Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone,

It's time for our October Karen Burniston Designer Challenge. This time around the theme for our challenge is Pop it Ups Video Techniques - Choose any technique from any of my Pop it Ups videos going back to the beginning and use it for a card of any theme. Put your spin on the video techniques and make them even better! It's your take on (say) an Explosion, Double Pivot, Pivot Accordion, Floating Floor, Double Lorna, Bridge Spinner, Doublehigh Pivot, etc. You can find all Karen's videos on here Youtube Channel here

Karen has created so many fabulous videos helping us to get more out of her dies. It is pretty hard to pick which video to use for my card today. But after a morning of sitting watching all her videos I decided to create my version of her Explosion Birthday Card Pop-Up Card. You can find Karen's video tutorial on how to create this card here. 

With Christmas getting closer and closer I decided to create a Christmas Card using the Lucy Label Pop Up Card die set.  The tree is the inner portion of the large Christmas Tree from the Christmas Tree Pop Stand Card. I also used the curvy die from the Outdoor Edges die set.

Here is the front of my card. I used the Christmas Tree Pop Stand Card die set to create the Christmas Tree. I also used the "Merry Christmas" from the Merry Christmas Pop Up Card die set. To decorate the tree I used Red/Gold Glitter Dots Peel Off Stickers.

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.

I will be back tomorrow with another card I created for this challenge.
