Karen Burniston's December 2015 Designer Challenge Card #2

Good morning friends

Here is my second card for the December Designer Challenge: Home for the Holidays - Let's see how you can interpret the phrase. Use the House, Holiday House or Barn (or are you making a tree house?) or some sort of "home" on a Holiday card.

I couldn't help it - I wanted the same idea as yesterday's card ... our home in the country ready to welcome the family for Christmas.

I made a three panel Pivot Card ... this is the front panel. A single tree decorated with glitter lines and a glittered star. The background was embossed with Karen Burniston's clouds embossing folder and the ground is the negative cut from the Beach Edges. 

I inked both the snowbank and the clouds with PanPastels and added some glitter as well.

The panel opens from the left and reveals an embossed white tree decorated with Glitter Dots and more glitter. The white trees are each embossed using the embossing feature that comes on those dies. Each tree has a different pattern, which was highlighted with glitter.

I used the house from the House Pivot along with the Merry & Bright clear stamps on the inner right panel. The house also has an embossing feature - the bricks! After embossing I added some colour with PanPastels.

Finally, here is the card fully opened. The Evergreen Pivot was cut into the left score line, and those trees pivot into the centre of the card as it is opened.

The house has glitter and Glitter Dots, and the snowbank is outlined with glitter.

Karen Burnsiton will have her post tomorrow morning - you will want to check that out for sure.
