April 2020 Karen Burniston Designer Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to our April 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 ...."TREE" - incorporate a tree into a card of any theme. You may choose from any of the Tree die sets (Tree, Evergreen Pivot, Christmas Tree, Christmas Trees Pop Stand, Palm Tree, Oval Frames Heart Tree, Winter Charms. 

For the "tree" portion of this challenge, I used the trees from the Evergreen Pivot Panels die set to create my scene. 

I used the Nature Edges die set to create my grassy area along the bottom of the card.

The clouds were created using MFT Stamps Mini Cloud stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink.

The lambs & sentiment are from Mama Elephants Zodiac Sheep stamp set.

I used the same elements that I used on the front of the card to create my scene on the inside.

For the pop-up portion of the card I used the new Paper Frames Pop-up die set which is now available for pre order with shipping starting next week. 

I added another "sheep" theme sentiment to the right panel of the Paper Frames pop-up which is from Honey Bee Stamps Lily the Lamb stamp set.

Here is a close up of the Paper Frames Pop-up, so you can see all the layering of the pop-up die a little easier.
