January 2020 Karen Burniston Designer Challenge

Welcome to our January Karen Burniston Designer Challenge, our first challenge for the year.

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 .... "HEARTS" - incorporate hearts into a card of any theme.

For my card today I decided to combine some of the new dies released in November last year with a few of the older dies. I created a Tag Book using the Circle Tag Pop-up die set and the Heart Pivot Panels die set.

I die cut the hearts included in the Heart Pivot Panels die set from Gold Glitter, Red and White Pearlescent Cardstock and alternated adhering them to the Heart Pivot Panel die cut.

I used the lips from the Love Charms die set which I added to the gold glitter hearts.

I die cut the "Hugs & Kisses" from Word Set 9 - Love from red cardstock, trimmed them apart and added them to the top and bottom portion of the heart pivot panel.

I also die cut the "XOXO" from the same set from gold glitter cardstock, cut this into two and added it to the top left and bottom right of the inside of my card.

Here is an overhead view of my card, so you can see the folds in the Heart Pivot Panels a little better.

For the front of my card, I used the Happy Valentine's Day die set and die cut the sentiment three times, once from gold glitter cardstock and twice from red cardstock. I layered these together off setting the gold glitter sentiment slightly over the red. I layered this to my card using ovals from the Crosshatch - Ovals die set.

I added the "Love You" and "Be Mine" Hearts from the Love Charms set to either side of the oval.
