Karen Burniston's March 2015 Designer Challenge ... 'Make Them Laugh"

Today is Day Two of Karen Burniston's March 2015 Designer Challenge, and I have two completely different cards today featuring the same Funnybones stamp.

I had fun creating the front of this card, using the Outdoor Edges and one of the Evergreen trees from the Evergreen Pivot die. I crumpled and inked the top layer of the large Evergreen for additional texture.

Here is a peek at the inside.  The rest of the saying is:  "Preferably in a hotel.  With a pool.  And a spa."  Ahahaha - my kind of camping!  Note, I cut the stamp into two pieces so I didn't have to fuss with masking and smudges.

The Holiday House and two additional trees from the Evergreen Pivot are attached to the Lorna Label Pop Up, so the entire scene pops up as the card is opened.

I cut additional trees for the Tree Line Outdoor Edge, inked and popped them up with foam tape over the original bases. The tree trunks were coloured with a Copic Marker.

For my second - much simpler - card, I used the same Funnybones stamp but a different theme entirely.

Inside I used the new Adirondack chair. I was surprised that this was actually the first time I've used that die as I've been having too much fun with the rest of the CHA Spring 2015 release! It was a snap to put together and I can't wait to play with it more.
