June 2019 Karen Burniston Designer Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends!!!

Welcome to our June 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 .... "BEACH DAY!" - celebrate the sea with a tropical card.

For my card today I used the Oval Frames Pop-up die set, I added designer paper to the background of both the front and inside of my card by using the largest rectangle from the Crosshatch Rectangles die set.

Along the bottom edge of each panel I added some sand, using the sand border from the Nature Edges die set. 

I used the small stand along palm tree from the Palm Trees Pop-up die set which I placed on the right and left hand sides of the card.

The larger crab on the right hand side of the card is from the Ocean Animals die set and the smaller one is from Sea Animals die set. Each of the crabs are holding ice creams which are from the Sweet Treats Charms die set.

For the bucket and spade I used the Adirondack Chair Pop-up die set. The shells are all from the Tropical Scene die set.

For the Oval Frame section at the top of the card I added a stamped sentiment which is from Honey Bee Stamps Mermaid Song Clear Stamp set. 

The sun & palm trees on the oval are again from the Tropical Scene die set. The clouds and bird (which is supposed to be a seagull for this card) are from the Outdoor Scene die set.

For the front of the card I added palms trees, using the small and large tree from the Palm Tree Pop-up die set. I again added the two crabs that I added to the inside but this time have them playing with a beach ball which is from the Beach Charms die set.
