February 2022 Karen Burniston Designer Challenge


Hi Crafty Friends, 

Welcome to our February 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 VALENTINES" - make a Valentines or Love-themed card WITHOUT using red or pink as the primary colors. Think blues, greens, oranges, yellows, browns, purples, grays, black and white, etc.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

For my card today I went with a love mail theme using Karen Burniston's new Mail Box Pop-up die set. As you can see I went with a mostly purple and green color combo.

I used purple heart patterned paper from Paper House, for all the layers of my card. The grass along the bottom of the card uses Lawn Fawn's Watercolor Wishes Patterned Paper.

I die cut the mail box using silver mirror cardstock, the mail box looks a lot better in real life then it does on the photo above. I used the envelope and hearts included in the Mail Box Pop-up die set to add all the envelopes and hearts. I die cut most of the envelope from the reverse side of the purple heart paper.

The "Love" sentiment is from the Sending Love die set.

To decorate my card I added the "owl posties", parcel and the stamped sentiment from two Lawn Fawn stamp set.

I kept the front of my card simple, as the focus of the card is on the inside. 

I added the hearts using the Hearts - Crosshatch die set. The sentiment is included in the Word Set 9 - Love die set.
