June 2020 Karen Burniston Designer Challenge

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 .... 
"PATTERN PLATES" - make a card of any theme that uses our new Pattern Plates in some way. This could be as a background, as a stencil, as an embossed surface, stacked together, cut into shapes, etc. Go wild!

If you follow my blog, you know that I have been creating a lot of Slimline cards lately. I decided to combine one of the pattern plates to create a slimline card.

I used the Swirls Pattern Plates die, it makes great clouds in the sky. I die cut the plate twice from white cardstock and adhered it to a blue panel which was 8 1/4inches x 3 1/4inches.

Along the bottom of the panel I used the castle from the Castle Pop-up die set to create a flat castle.

I added three birds to the sky which are from the Outdoor Scenes die set.

As you can see I created a pop-up card using the Katherine Label Pop-up die set. I added the birthday sentiment from Word Set 2 - Birthday to the label of the pop-up.

Along the bottom edge of the card I created a grassy panel using a die from the Nature Edges die set. As this die is designed for a standard card size, I die cut the long white panel once and then carefully lined it up and die cut it a second time. I then used inks to color the grassy panel.

I added the princess to the right hand side which is from the Princess and Mermaid die set. I also added the Princess die cut sentiment which is from the Word Set 5 - Royalty die set.
