Happy Holidays with Karen Burniston Dies


I have been having so much fun playing with the new release from Karen Burniston for Halloween and Christmas and this is one of the cards I designed. The front features Karen's new Gift Card Label die and it could be left just as is with the "wishing you" (from Memory Box) for a beautiful and decorative card front. But if you wanted to use this card to give a gift card, you could slide it right in under the decorative green elements and it would stay in place until given. 

As usual with cards created with Karen Burniston's dies, the real fun is in the inside of the card:

Isn't this cool? The sleigh pops up and stands up for display in the home of the recipient who is going to love this! I used Karen's Sleigh Pop Up die for the sleigh and the presents and the cute penguin is from her Winter Animals set. The sentiment is from her Holiday Word Set and I admit I totally cased the idea of using the wreath for the "O" from a card that Karen made. Here is a closeup of the sleigh- note the gold mirror card front is embossed and the die does that:


Thanks for helping me share the joy of creativity!
