Karen Burniston Designer Challenge - September 2021


Welcome to our September 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 ... Theme: "SUN OR SNOW" - make a sunny or snowy day card.

As you can see by my card above, I went with the the snowy theme to create a Christmas card. My finished card measured 7 inches x 5 inches.

To create my card I used the Garden Bench Pop which I positioned in the centre of my card. The snowflakes on the cushions are from the Snowman Pop-up die set. I added the Street Lantern Pop-up die set to add the street lanterns on either side of the bench.

I used the snowy Slimline border from the Long Nature Edges die set to add the snowy border along the front edge and along the back found of my card. I also added the snowflake border from the Long Nature Edges 2 die set for the snowflake border which is at the front edge of the card, this was die cut using white glitter cardstock.

For the sentiment I used the Merry Christmas & Merry Christmas Shadow die sets which I adhered to the back panel of my card.

I added the snowman from the Snowman die set which I popped up in front of the garden bench using the die from the Street Lantern Pop-up die set.

I used the Snowman, Street Lantern and Slimline snow border which I used on the inside on my card to decorate the front of my card. For the sentiment I used the "brrr" sentiment from the Word Set 13 Snow die set.
