To decorate my card I used Darkroom Door’s Carved Birds Set 1 stamp set.
On the left hand panel I used the coordinating Square W/Circle Frame Edges die set, this set has 3 different frame dies you can use to decorate your circle accordion cards … my favorite is the dots frame!
On the centre panel after die cutting the accordion panel I left the card in the die and sent it back through my Sizzix Big Shot using the embossing sandwich so that the stitching around the frame embossed onto my card. I then used some ink to sponge the stitching while the die was still in place.
And finally on the right hand panel I used designer paper and used the Accordion Circle Die again and then trimmed out the circle from the centre and adhered this over my card.
And here is my accordion card seen from the front when it is closed ready to be mailed. I have again used the circle frame from the coordinating Square W/Circle Frame Edges die set to decorate the front panel.
