March 2024 Karen Burniston Designer Challenge


Hi Crafty Friends, 

Welcome to our March 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 ... "BUNNY EARS" - Use a bunny, bunnies or even just the ears for a card of any theme.

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

As you can see, I have created an Easter themed Slimline Card. Actually my card is more a DL card, rather than a Slimline being that it is 8 1/4 inches wide by 4 1/4 inches, I opted for this size to make sure the Bunny Ball Character would fit inside the card properly.

For this card, I decided to not attach the bunny to the card, that way when the card is opened the bunny explodes out of the card. You can see this if you watch the video above. The bunny can't fall out of the card as the magnets on the flap keeps it safe inside.

I used the Long Flap and Closure die set to add the flap to the bottom portion of the Slimline card.

Along the top of the card I added a thin panel to which I added the bunnies from the Easter Borders die set.

The grass along the bottom of the card is from the Long Nature Edges die set. 

I also added a stamped sentiment to my card, which I die cut out using the smallest rectangle die included in the Short Rectangles die set.

To create the bunny, I used the Mini Ball Pop-up die set along with the new Animals Add-ons 5 die set. I added a green label to the bottom of the bunny to look like grass, the label is from the Rectangle and Labels Crosshatch die set.

For the front of the card, I used the dies from the Animals Add-on 5 die set to make two bunny faces. I also used the smallest circle included in the Circles Crosshatch die set.

I also used the Happy Easter die set to add the Easter sentiment.
