Oval Accordion Daisies Card

Hello everyone,

Today I would like to share a card that I created using the Accordion Oval Card by Karen Burniston, the Daisies Peel-Offs and two dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs’s latest release, Bunch of Flowers 3 and Flourishes & Branches. Although it was snowing here yesterday in Banff, I felt like creating a bright flowery card for Spring.

Accordion Flowers

1. Cut 2 accordion pages using Accordion Oval Card from cream colored cardstock and ink edges with yellow. Trim the long side tab of one of the pages plus the little tab from the oval on the inside. Also cut the following:

10 flowers from yellow cardstock (I used two different yellows) using Bunch of Flowers 3.

10 flower centers from white cardstock covered with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.

4 Flourishes from light green cardstock using Flourishes & Branches.

1 stitched oval from light blue cardstock using 2 accessory dies from Accordion Oval Card.

1 smaller oval from white cardstock covered with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter using smallest accessory die from Accordion Oval Card. Add Happy Birthday Peel-Off.

2. Apply a piece of Transparent Double Sided Adhesive to white cardstock large enough to fit the daisies peel-off. Remove release sheet and transfer peel-off to the adhesive using Els’s transfer technique shown in this VIDEO. Add Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.

3. Color peel-off with Copic markers or other alcohol markers. For the petals I added a little bit of the Y15 Cadmium Yellow and used my blender pen to add some shading. For the leaves I used the YG17 Grass Green and the YG25 Celadon. I blender the two together using my blender pen as well. For the background I used the B41 Powder Blue.

4. Now it’s time to assemble your accordion card. Karen Burniston has a great YouTube Video that will show your exactly how to assemble your card. See it HERE.

5. To decorate the front and back of my card I used the Oval Flourish Frame Edges. I cut them from light blue cardstock but added some double sided adhesive on the back of my carstock first. I also cut two yellow ovals using the main die from the Accordion Oval Card to cover the little tab on the back. See photo below.

And here is a picture of the card closed, ready to go in the mail.

Happy Birthday Foxy

Hello everyone,

Today I like to share a card that I made using the new Foxy Peel-Offs from Elizabeth Craft Designs. It’s a really easy card to create. I colored on top of the Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. The branch is from the new Lots of Owls Peel-Offs and for the hinges I used Stand Up Helpers 3 – Hinges. Follow my step by step instructions below.

Fox Birthday

1. Cut dark brown cardstock 5-1/5″ x 8-1/5″. Score at 4-1/4″ and fold in half.

2. Cut light brown cardstock 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ and adhere to card front.

3. Cut a small piece of dark brown cardstock 1″ x 4-1/4″. We’ll use this later.

4. Apply a piece of Transparent Double Sided Adhesive to white cardstock large enough to fit 2 foxes and the small branch peel-offs. Remove release sheet and transfer peel-offs to the adhesive using Els’s transfer technique shown in this VIDEO. Add Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Follow all the steps in the video until you colored all your peel-offs.

Foxy 2

I used Copic markers to color my peel-offs but you can use any alcohol marker. For the foxes their skin I used the Y38 and the E19 and I blend the two colors together using my colorless blender # 0.

Fox 3

5. After you’re done coloring, cut out peel-offs using fine pointed scissors. Elizabeth Craft Designs has some awesome fine pointed scissors. See supply list for details.

6. Apply a piece of Transparent Double Sided Adhesive to white cardstock .7/8″ x 4-1/8″. Remove release sheet and cover with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish glitter with your finger and brush of excess glitter. Ad Happy Birthday peel-off. Adhere sentiment to dark brown cardstock cut in step 3.

7. Cut 2 hardware hinges using Stand Up Helpers 3 – Hinges from white cardstock backed with adhesive (Note: there are 5 different hinges in this die set). The bottom part of the hinges is a score line so you have to cut this part. Ink hinges with dark brown.

8. Assemble your card as shown in the picture of the finished card at the top. Optional: before you adhere the hinges, add black Border Peel-Offs around frame.

I hope that you enjoyed creating this Foxy Birthday card. Should you have any questions at all, please feel free to leave me a comment.

Happy a nice day,

Joset
