Karen Burniston Whimsical Animals Pocket Letter for Dies R Us

Hi there, if you are a regular reader, you know I love the Karen Burniston animals. However, I have not played around with dressing them up using the Accessory packs.  I designed a bunch of little animals and dressed them up. I decided a pocket letter was the best way to show them all off.

Here is Professor Owl layered on a Tutti Nesting Stitched Oval.

I created a little scene with the Karen Burniston Backyard Charms flower and snail dies.  I added some fussy cut clouds from the background paper on top of the pocket page.  I like the 3-D look. It also worked to secure some of the openings.

 The fox is a super hero flying in the sky.  Helpful tip for this post - cut an extra fox/raccoon head out of white and inlay the ears for a finished look.  You could also layer white paper behind.

Here's another little scene I created with the butterfly, grass and mushroom also from the Karen Burniston Backyard Charms set.

I dressed the raccoon as a football player.  I used scraps of die cut edges for the ground here and fencing on the cow section.

I created a paper cover for the edge out of the same background paper and layered more fussy cut clouds on top.
