Karen Burniston Designer Challenge - June 2023 - Wedding or Baby!

Hello and Welcome! It's Designer Challenge time once again and this months theme is Wedding or Baby! For my card, I used the Surprise Cube Pop-Up to create baby blocks.  

For this card, I started with a card base of 5 x 10 3/4. I created a 1/4 in folding point in the center to make room for the blocks. 

I added the flap using the Flap & Closure die set and made the "buttons" on the flap and front along with bakers twine to create a closure for the card. 

I added patterned paper I had from a baby themed patterned paper pack. 

For the blocks, I used 80lb smooth white cardstock and added blue and white to each block. I used the Alphabet dies to cut out the word baby in a sparkly blue cardstock.

I also added some baby themed die cuts to the other sides of the blocks using the Baby Charms die set.  

I had a star shaped die set and cut several different sizes of stars out in different colors of blue cardstock that I had in my scraps. 

I die cut one big star and used Honey Bee Stamps Inside: Welcome Baby Sentiments to create the sentiment on the large star. Then I used Distress Ink in Peacock Blue to add some color to the edges of the star. 

I tried to keep the background and the front of the card simple, because the pop-up blocks are really the center focal point in this card. 

I double checked twice the positioning of the blocks before gluing them into the card base, ensuring that they would fit perfectly. 

For the front of the card, I kept it simple, using the Rectangles - Crosshatch to created squares and Lawn Fawn's Little Bundle stamp set to create the baby images and sentiment. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting
