It's Karen Burniston's birthday, and the design team has decided to share the fun with everyone with a Birthday Blog Hop.
I have been having so much fun creating slimline cards and seeing how I can incorporate the various Karen Burniston dies into them. For my birthday card I used the Circle Charm Pop-Up, some Wine Charms, and one of my favorite colors -- PURPLE.
We all have piles of 12 x 12 patterned paper, I am sure. It is the perfect size to use on a slimline card because you can get three panels out of one sheet of paper -- one for the front and two for the inside.
The image on the front is from an old stamp set I had, but the inside circles have die cuts from the Wine Charms die set. I hung the champagne glass from the center circle with a jump ring and glued down the wine bottle and wine glass to the third circle. I added two panels I had cut using the Crosshatch Rectangles, putting Happy Birthday on one, and a champagne bottle on the other. There is plenty of room to write a birthday message on that one! I added some Glossy Accents to the glasses and the wine bottles and scattered some enamel dots throughout.
I had another piece of that same patterned paper, so I lined the envelope to make the perfect set!
Be sure to check out the rest of the blog hop and see how the other members of the design team are wishing Karen Burniston a very happy birthday.
