Just wanted to say Hello

Hello there, Alicia with you today.  I used the Karen Burniston Fancy Label Accordion die set to create a fun 3-D card.  I used several Karen Burniston die sets to make this outdoorsy make.  I think this will really make someone's day and hopefully will be displayed.



I used the same coordinating blue card stock for the sentiments throughout to create a flow.



Here's a close up of just the front panel.  The trees are actually from the Karen Burniston Long Nature Edges.  The trees in that set are a bit smaller than the Karen Burniston Outdoor Scene trees with the birds, clouds and deer border that I also used on this project.



The second panel has the cute little bear from Karen Burniston Winter Animals.  I just cut him in brown instead of white.  I added the stick, hat and fish from 
Karen Burniston Camping Charms.


I colored the fish with alcohol markers. I simply cut a piece of the blue paper against the bottom edge of the pivot label for the water.



I learned something creating this card.  Well, perhaps I just should have thought it through more thoroughly the first time.  But I will impart the wisdom I learned from this project.  I wanted the tree line to fit the pivoted label so I placed the cut on the label die and ran it through my machine.  It's obvious from this photo, I ruined the rest of the cut as it got chopped up by the rest of the die.


Second time around, I cut the border strip to fit the label panel.  I also used both the top and bottom cutting two at once! Better cuts and time saver.  I hope this helps you in a future project.
