Karen Burniston's April Challenge

Hello Friends, it's the Karen Burniston Challenge time again and this months theme is Mamas and Babies - Use Pop it Ups to celebrate Mum for Mother's Day OR make a Baby card. You decide! 

Go to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog this Wednesday to see to collaborative post from Karen where she will show you what all us designers have done for this theme and I am sure Karen will have something WOW for us too.


And here is my card.  I decided on "Baby" for my card, since Mothers Day in the UK has already been and gone and I do love to create baby cards.


I used the Karen Burniston/Elizabeth Craft Designs Heart Pivot die, after all a HEART is perfect to show the love we have for these sweet little bundles of joy. 

 I used some of the heart decorator dies to create the glittered heart frames to decorate the main piece.  

I made my base card from a soft blue card stock and used one of the KB Embosing folders called TRENDY TILES 1 on the edges.,  I used a white inkpad to highlight the embossing further.

The Congratulations die is from Elizabeth Craft Designs

Those cute little Hedgehogs are from Penny Black.  I love these guys.  Margaret Sherry is
my favourite Penny Black designer.  I am a little sad to see that Penny Black don't appear to have any of her designs in the newest collection :(  I hope this is a one off.


I love the dimension these cards give using the Pivot dies.  And I love how easy they are, they really are so simple.  I can not wait to see what Karen has up her sleeve for any new designs!

So head on over on Wednesday to see the complete Designer Challenge Team and their cards. I am sure your socks will be knocked off! as mine are each month.

Super cute! I love the technique of using an embossing folder on the edge. Using white to bring out the embossing is brilliant! Love it!
