Have A Cool Yule


Hi everyone,

As you can see I have been having lots of fun playing with Karen Burniston’s new dies which will be released by Elizabeth Crafts Designs in July.

This time round I have created another Accordion Card using the new Ring Accordion Album. Chilly The Penguin and Props die sets.

I just love Chilly … isn’t he adorable! For my card today I die cut Chilly from white and black card. After I pieced my first penguin together I was left with enough pieces almost to make another penguin but it would be the negative of the first … all I had to do was die cut more eyes, beak and feet .. so I went for it and love the look!


I die cut 3 of the pages again using designer paper to cover the first and last pages … one thing to note if you are covering the front with Designer papers you need to turn your designer paper the opposite way to how you cut the pages inside. EG … if you die cut the pages pattern side up for the inside … you would die cut your front page pattern side down … make sense???


The Ring Accordion Album also comes with the tops of ornaments which you can use to decorate your card … on this one I added the ornament hangers to the first and last page.

I die cut the scarf (from the Chilly the Penguin set) and the Hat (from the Props Set) from red and green card adhering Double Sided Adhesive Paper to the front of the card before die cutting. Once cut I added Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to make the hat and scarf a little more festive. I alternated the colors I used on each penguin.


And one final photo this time of the front when the card is closed.

Oh btw the snowflakes used on this card is from the All Seasons Tree.
