C4C241 - Sketch Challenge Card

Good morning friends!

It's time for another challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog and this week our hostess Peggy McCurry has a sketch for us ...




Since I don't have a Chevron anything, I used the Snowflakes die from the All Season's Tree (Pop it Ups by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs) in it's place. I die cut them from the aqua textured card stock letting the white card base show through the openings.


Inside, I used another Pop it Ups - this time the Lots of Pops. I left the side and bottom steps in the closed position though, only using the largest base and the top step to attach my cut-outs to.


I also got to play with one of Karen Burniston's newest dies ... Chilly the Penguin. (Shipping mid-July). The black and white areas were actually cut from Velvet Sheets from Elizabeth Craft Designs. The sheets are self adhesive, and it makes putting the designs together a breeze.



Chilly got some Glossy Accents on his eyes, beak and feet...



When Karen Burniston designed the Character dies (Chilly the Penguin, Poppy the Owl, Hoppy the Frog), she put a lot of thought into them. For instance, the decorator pieces cut TWO eyes, and/or TWO feet at the same time.  The little scarf comes with Chilly, and there is a Props die that works with each of the Characters. The Props die has things like a top hat, and glasses. :-)

We would sure love you to play along with the challenge, and link up your project. Be sure to check out what the rest of the Crazies have come up with for the challenge, at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  (If you link up to an on-line gallery, please use the keyword C4C241.)
