March 2020 Karen Burniston Designer Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to our March 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 .... 
"ICYMI (In Case You Missed It)" - repost your favorite card from any previous Designer Challenge. 

I posted this "pugalicious" card for our July 2019 "Picture This" Designer Challenge using the Photo Collage Card Pop-up die set. You can see more details about this card in my blog post found here.

 The photos I used on this card were of my grand puppy Frankie, my daughter (her mummy), is always taking photos of her and often messages them to us. Frankie is quite a character!  So for our challenge today, I decided to create another card using some of the newer photos of Frankie that I have received.

This time around I decided to create a Photo Tag Book, using the Tag Book Pop-up die set. To frame all the photos I used the photo frame from the Photo Collage Pop-up die set.

 The hardest part about making this card was deciding which photos to use.

I added three photos inside the photo frames to the front of the tag book. As one of the photos was from Frankie's 1st birthday party last year I decided to go with a birthday theme. I added the "Make A Wish" sentiment from Word Set 2 - Birthday underneath the photos.

I used the dog bowl, bones, hearts and bandana from the Cat & Dog die set to embellish the front of the card. The bandana if you are looking for it, I added to the centre photo of Frankie. So it looks like she is wearing it.

On the inside of the tag book, I added two more photos in the photo frames. These were placed on the larger tags on each end of the tag book.

Here is a close up look at the left hand side of my tag book. I added a bone to the bottom of the photo frame and added a bull dog clip from the Photo Collage Pop-up die set to the right hand side of the photo.

I used the fancy square die to decorate the centre square panels. This is another die included in the Tag Book Pop-p die set. I also added the "Happy" to the centre of the square.

On the right hand side of my tag book, I replicated what I did on the left hand side. I also added the "Birthday" to the square panel, as the sentiment was longer than the square I cut it into 2 pieces to add to the square.
