Hope Your Birthday is a Blast!


Hello everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Being a brand new month we have a new challenge hostess which is Mwah! That’s ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since yesterday was the 4th of July our challenge this week is to Use the colors Red, White and Blue to create your card. It does not have to be a patriotic card.

As you can see I have created an Accordion Card using the Ring Accordion (904) designed by Karen Burniston’s for Elizabeth Crafts Designs, this die should be in your stores by mid July.


I have been wanting to do a space themed card using this die for a while now (it was actually a suggestion from a couple of friends) … not sure if this is what they had in mind, but this is what I created Winking smile.

I used the Out of This World Stamp set from There She Goes, unfortunately this company is out of business now, but there are a ton of other space themed stamps which would work with this.


I used the stitched lines in the die to decorated the outer rings of the accordion and also added some stars which are also stamped in white.


And here is the card all closed up ready to pop in an envelope to give to someone.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.

    Hi Frances,This turned out amazing and it is a wonderful interpretation of Gai's and my disjointed discription with hand signals about a Tv show that we recalled but couldn't remember the name. Well once I saw your card it came to me 'Stargate SG1' wouldnt it be wonderful to have a stargate to see all these wonderful design team creations in person. - Maryann
