Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge Card #3

Good morning friends

I had a fabulous mail day late yesterday - hubby picked up the mail when he walked the dogs and my new  Karen Burniston dies are here! I will have some fun today playing.

I have a third card for Karen Burniston's September Designer Challenge, and this time using the Accordion Frame Edges in a different way. A flat card! Well sort of, I couldn't resist adding a spinner to the inside.

I only used white card stock for the entire card, adding colour with PanPastels. The bottom panel was embossed with one of Karen Burniston's embossing folders before adhering it to the card front.

I cut two sets of Square with Circle Frame Edges - the solid edges were cut from my coloured card stock, and the polka-dot edges were cut from white card stock with the ECD Double Sided Adhesive on the back.

Once it was attached to the card, I used the circle accessory die from the Clock and Gears set to cut a window in the centre of the framed piece. Happy and Birthday were cut from more of the hand coloured card stock and adhere so it shows through the circular window. Then I added some of those cute hearts (Merry Christmas Pop-Up) dabbed with glitter glue.

The party hat was attached to the spinner from the Rectangle Pull Card and placed so it sits on the 'B' from Birthday when the card is closed.

Frame Edges are versatile - and while they work perfectly as intended for the Accordion cards/albums, they can be used in other ways as well!

Karen Burniston will have her post tomorrow on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog at 8am, and be sure to check out the rest of the Designer Challenge Team to see what they've come up with for the challenge.
