I’m Karen Burniston, engineer-turned-designer. My approach to product design is to pack every die set with as much innovation, versatility and function as possible. I design products that I will want to use, over and over again, for all sorts of occasions and in all sorts of combinations. There’s something truly magical about a pop-up card and my goal is to make that magic accessible to any crafter.
I’ve been working professionally in the craft industry for over twenty years. Pop-up cards have always been a passion, and after eight years of licensing my die designs to other companies, I felt ready to take the leap and launch my own company. As it turns out, my friend Tanya Kostynuk, the owner of Riley and Company was also looking for a new opportunity. We decided to join forces and go in cahoots with each other, creating KB Riley LLC - the official home for new Karen Burniston products.
