May 2019 Karen Burniston Designer Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends!!!

Welcome to our May Karen Burniston Designer Challenge.

Check out Karen Burniston's blog on Wednesday (US Time) when you will be able to see what all the designers created for the challenge this month, plus Karen will have an amazing video tutorial to share with us all.

Our challenge theme this month is .... "CONGRATS" - this can be graduation or general congrats - your choice! 

I am always in need of baby cards, so that is what I decided to create for today's challenge. 

To create my card I pulled out the Frame Pull Pop-up die set. I have been using this a lot recently to create Waterfall cards, but this time around I used it as it was designed to be used. To decorate my card I used the Baby Charms, Crosshatch Ovals and the Congrats from the Word Set 8 - Congrats die set.

When you "pull" the pull tab at the bottom of the card, the card opens up to reveal a cute little pop-up card inside. Here I added the BABY blocks and ducks from the Baby Charms die set. I used the Crosshatch Ovals for both of the ovals on the card, one to hand write a personal message. The "Welcome" is from the Word Set 7 - Autumn die set.

Here is a quick video to show my card in action.

This card has a few different options on how to add the frame pull card pop-up piece. For my card today, I decided to adhere it to the front of a folded card. I used the Crosshatch Squares for the square panels and added a sentiment and baby bottles.
