Karen Burniston New Release Blog Hop

After a much-too-long delay, the new Karen Burniston dies are ready for pre-order, and the Design Team has been chomping at the bit to be able to show them to you.  The card I have to show you today features two of the new dies -- the Paper Frames Pop-Up and the Cruise Charms.




I found a nautical scrapbook kit at Hobby Lobby on clearance a few weeks ago and decided the papers would be perfect on a card using these dies.  I used one of the smaller prints for my background and cut out the sentiment with some circle dies, adding the gold anchor from the Cruise Charms in the center.  The trim at the top and bottom are from one of the Border Blends across the top and bottom.



The inside is where the interest comes in.  Aren't those great frames for the other Cruise Charms?  The little banners strung across the top are also included in the Paper Frames Pop-Up die set.  The panel on the right is where a personal message could be written.


I had made a card for my sister using both of these die sets when I first received them.  She had been planning a cruise with several of her friends; but, unfortunately because of the current health situation, they had to cancel.  She did enjoy the card though.  The ocean paper was also part of that nautical scrapbook kit.




There are eight new dies in this release -- two pop-up dies, three background dies, and three charms/sentiment dies.  


Something you might find helpful when deciding which dies your NEED, here's a link to Karen Burniston's newest catalog.
