Karen Burniston July 2023 Designer Challenge - Collection Pack Creations!

 Hello Crafty Friends and welcome! It's Designer Challenge time again and this months theme was Collection Pack Creations. What is that you ask? Well each team member was given a patterned paper collection pack and we had to make a card using only the paper pack. This was actually a real challenge when you usually make cards that have lots of coloring, die cuts and add-ons!

For my card, I used Echo Park Paper Co. - Dive Into Summer patterned paper collection pack. 

I started with a 5x7 sized card base, using a light blue cardstock. 

I used Karen Burniston's Rectangles and Labels - Crosshatch dies to die cut the inner panels using a yellow starfish patterned paper from the pack. 

Before I glued the panels down, I trimmed the patterned strips using the paper sheet that has strips of different patterns on them (sorry if that doesn't make sense). I added them to each panel, trimming the extra off the edges. Then I glued the panels down to the card base. 

I decided to use Karen Burniston's Rockin' Rectangle Pop-Up die set for this card. I die cut the pop-up mechanism using the same colored cardstock as the card base. Then following her assembly video (which you can watch by click here) I folded, glued and add the pop-up mechanism to my card. 

I then die cut the "enjoy every minute" piece from the paper pack using the largest rectangle die that comes with the Rockin' Rectangle. I also cut a piece from green cardstock using the same die and glued them together to give the patterned paper some support. 

I added some of the other patterned paper pieces to the left side of the card and then added some of the stickers that came with my paper pack. 

For the front of the card, I added a panel of patterned paper, using the same Rectangles and Labels - Crosshatch die in the largest size. 

I picked one of the bigger pieces that was printed on one sheet of the paper pack and carefully cut it out. I added a green cardstock border to it and glued that to the first panel on the front of my card. 

And that was it! Card finished, and all I used was the amazing Echo Park - Dive into Summer paper pack! 

I hope you are inspired to dig out a paper pack and try this! Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
