December 2021 Karen Burniston Designer Challenge

Welcome to our December 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 ... "MOD HOLIDAY" - make a Christmas card using a non-traditional color scheme.

As you can see, I decided to use the colors pink and blue for my card today. I created a Christmas themed Slimline card that measures 3 1/2 inches x 8 1/2 inches.

I used the new Little Labels Pop-up die set to create the pop-up on the inside of the card.

I added Christmas trees using the Christmas Trees Pop Stand die set to add the pink trees to the outer labels of the pop-up. I added a sentiment to the centre label.

I added the Street Lanterns to either side of the pop-up using the Street Lantern Pop-up die set. I didn't use the pop-up die that comes with the die set, but used foam tape instead. I also trimmed the street lantern a little shorter, to allow it to fit in the width of the card.

On the lower panel of the inside of the card, I used the Labels - Crosshatch die set to add a place for a hand written greeting.

I kept the front of the card simple, as the focus of this card is on the inside. I added a Christmas sentiment using the Merry Christmas and Merry Christmas Shadow die sets.

I added another pink Christmas Tree to the right side of my card.

I like the different look adding the trees to the label pop-ups. It makes me want to try some other of Karen's house dies on them.
