Oval 2 panel accordion Card

Hello again, I am doing well so far this week almost a card every day. I sit here in the evening watching the News programs and add posts to my blog. I have a few cards in the pipeline to show you so hopefully I will be able to upload them to show you!

This card was a quick one to make. Here it is:

I used black kaisercraft liquorice weave 12 x 12 card stock. to make the frame, using a solver gel pen to draw the lines through the die.
I really liked the sentiment which says "Your Birthday is always a pleasure to celebrate with you, you deserve the best day ever and have all your dreams come true". I created this on my computer and cut it out with the accordion oval die in the set. 

I think the little presents die from Elizabeth Craft Designs is so cute when made up. It was fun to mix and match different scraps to make these little presents.

I used the silver gel pen to draw the little flowers on the card front.

So there you have it ... Here are the main ingredients I used to make this card:

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you are having/have had a great day

An oval 3 panel accordion birthday card

Hello, thanks for stopping by. I hope this post finds you well and that your week has began well.
I have another accordion card to show you. I am really enjoying making them, the Elizabeth Craft Design dies designed by Karen Burniston make card making so much fun.

So here is my card, it is a 3 panel oval accordion.

I used a piece of Kaisercraft design paper as the base of my card. Then I used some DCWV bright 12 x 12 coloured card stock for the edges on the frames.

The peel off I used was one I had in my stash - like most of us, I guess, we have things we have collected over time and not used. So it was great to find a use for a peel off I have had or some time.

I have photos of each of the panels:

The first/front panel

I used Transparent Double Sided Adhesive sheets, glitter and Copics to make and colour each of the panels.

The second panel.

A different image on the same peel off. Great to colour and easy to do.

The final panel.

I needed to add little pieces of solver tape to cover the corner edges (basically I didn't but the corners together very well!).

I have now learned to put the edge pieces together first (using little pieces of tape on the reverse) before adding glue and sticking them to the card panel.

The main ingredients I used to make this card:

Thanks for stopping by to read my blog today.

A Happy Birthday 4 panel Accordion Card

Hello again my Blogging family and friends. The card I am showing you today is one a made a little while ago so I am happy to have it to share with you now.
It uses the Elizabeth Craft Designs Fancy Frame accordion die and matching edges.
Here it is:

Here is the card opened out. I also took pictures of each individual panel. The base frames are from a 12 x 12 DCWV  and the edges are ust plain white card stock.

I used an ECD Butterfly peel off and a great technique of sticking it to Transparent Double sided tape, then sprinkling with glitter and then colouring with Copic Markers. There's a great Tutorial that shows you how to do this on YouTube..

OK here are close ups of each of the four panels.

The front panel.

The second panel.
