Karen Burniston November 2015 Designer Challenge Card #2

Good morning friends

Today I have my second share for Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge: "Pop it Ups Video Techniques - Choose any technique from any of my Pop it Ups videos going back to the beginning and use it for a card of any theme. Put your spin on the video techniques and make them even better!"

To make the challenge even sweeter, check out this ECD Promotion!... To coincide with the November Designer Challenge, every purchase made over $40 of Karen Burniston's Pop It Ups will receive a FREE $10 Gift Card. You will receive your Gift Card with your order in the mail and your Gift Card can be used on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website. This offer only applies to purchases made on our website between Tuesday 17th November and Thursday 19th November.



I sort of cheated on this one. You see, teammate Shelly Hickox made another amazing concertina card and posted it on the Elizabeth Craft Designer Blog and I immediately wanted to try it out. You can see Shelly's card HERE and HERE.

This is not the first concertina card Shelly made either - her first one can be seen HERE, along with a little video clip showing how it works. She credits Karen Burniston as coming up with the method of using the Accordion dies to create a concertina card, which is totally brilliant.

Don't you love it when you can get double duty from your dies? Below is the card folded up and ready to go into the envelope. While it's a very dimensional card, it folds down almost completely flat for easy mailing.


When you take the card out of the envelope, it springs open showing these fun farm Characters ready to party.


The expanding tree from the Christmas Tree Pop Stand works perfectly on the back page ... I couldn't resist adding it. To make it more festive and less like a woodland tree, I added a bunch of tiny flowers from the Props 7. It cuts three at a time, so it was fast to make a whole bunch of flowers. They were lightly coloured with PanPastels before adhering to the card.


While Brownie the Cow was cut from digital printed paper, Snowball the Sheep, Cheepers the Chicken and Virgil the Pig were cut form the new Elizabeth Craft Designs Soft Finish Card Stock and coloured with PanPastels.


Here is another look at the expanding tree - SO fun!



Another look at the card ... it was so much fun to make and I hope you will try it too!
