Hello My Friend

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing an Accordion card using Karen Burniston's Charm Accordion die set. This is one of Karen's first dies she released through KB Riley LLC about three years or so ago. With so many new dies since then, it has been a while since I have pulled it out to play, so it was fun to finally get to play with it again.

This is another card I created as a sample for Karen to use for the tv shows on Hochanda earlier in the month. For this card Karen requested that I use the Charm Accordion and the Memory Charms die sets along with any of the other dies that were going to be featured on Hochanda.

I decided to created a 4 page accordion card, which meant  die cutting the main die twice and joining it.

To decorate my card I used the Cat and Dog die set as well as the picture frame from the Memory Charms die set. I changed the orientation of the picture frame by cutting the hanger from the picture frame and adding it to the side instead. As you can see by the photo above, I added the cat to the picture frame on the first panel.

As you can see by the photo above, I also used the dog from the Cat and Dog die set and added that to another picture frame. The sentiments used on this card are from Word Set 1 - Greetings die set.

For the charm portion of this card which are hanging in between the square panels, I added a heart charm which is also included in the Charm Accordion die set. 

When you close the card, the cat in the picture frame can be seen from the front of the card. I also added a couple of flourish corner die cuts which are also included in the Charm Accordion die set.
