July 2016 Pop It Ups Designer Challenge #2

Hi everyone,

Welcome to our second Pop It Ups Designer Challenge for July. This time round the challenge has been issued by Kelly Booth who has given us the challenge .....

"Stretch it out!" - use any of the Accordion dies for a project of any theme.

After a little thought I decided to create a Baby card. I used the Rectangle Accordion Card for the base of my card. 
To decorate my accordion card I used the Baby Charms which I have placed in the the basket from the Barrel Basket with Pop Up die set. The heart on the baby onesie is from the Poppy the Owl die set. 

For the centre page I stamped the sentiments from the Baby Clear Stamp set. I also added the frame edges from the Katie Stars Frame Edge die set.

I also added the Paris Edges panels to each end of the card. I used Gold/Transparent Glitter Border Peel Off Stickers to the edge where the Paris Edge joins the Accordion. 

Here is a look at my card then it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope. I added the words "Baby" and "Girl" on each side of the edges using the Alphabet 1 - Caps die set. I also added the umbrella which is also included in the Baby Charms die set.

I don't often decorate the back of the accordion card when I make one, but as the Paris Edges edge can be seen on the front when the card is closed (see front photo above), I decided to also add another panel with another of the sentiments from the Baby Clear Stamp set.

The two edges you see in the photo directly above are the ones seen when the card is opened and you are looking at the three pages together.
