Karen Burniston February Designer Challenge

This is our very first Karen Burniston designer challenge using her brand new Elizabeth craft designs dies. Our challenge this month was to use any of the three pivot card dies for any theme, any style. I chose to use the Katie card die with a Melissa Frances 6x6 paper pad.
I used a double sided adhesive sheet to attach the three pieces of 6x6 paper together before running them through my big shot machine
I then folded the card and used some washi tape to hold it and the agatha die in place while I ran it through the die cutting machine again.
I found one of Elizabeth craft designs peel off sticker sheets had the perfect strips for the musical staves. I used washi tape to hold the labels in place so I could make the staves flow from one to another, then cut the excess off.
I then added a Quaver and some black gems (on the correct stave to play "happy birthday to you")

I love bling and pearls so adding them to the peel off stickers was a necessity:)

I also love bunting!!! The flag pole and flag set on Karen's new lots of pops die is going to get sooooo much use:)
I am beginning to get quite a collection Elizabeth craft designs word dies although I don't have the word 'to' I was able to cut and glue the word hello to make it. Like this..
Thank you for looking at my first post for Karen Burniston's Elizabeth craft design blog. Don't forget to check out the rest of the teams awesomeness:)

Here are some of the products I used:

Katie Label Pivot Card (768)


  1. Bravo Donna! You're a clever little crafter making "Hello" into "To". Wonderful card too.

  2. Everything about this card is happy! I love how clever you were with the music notes, the poles, banners and that crafty "to"!

  3. It's amazing that you took several pieces of paper and other bits and put them together and came up with this lovely card. Good job.

  4. Such a clever card, love how you created the music on the labels and also getting 'to' from the 'hello' die

  5. Oh MY - what a fun card. Thanks for adding all the step out photos - adding the music lines like that is brilliant. Also loved how you created the 'to'.
