My card today uses three of the new die sets being release ... Landscape Rectangle Accordion; Mini Alphabet and Numbers and Short Rectangles - Crosshatch.

One of the very first dies I purchased when I first discovered Karen Burniston's products many years ago was an accordion die. So I was excited to see that Karen has added a new one to her collection ... the Landscape Rectangle Accordion die set, which is Mini Slimline sized. I die cut the main accordion page die from green cardstock and also from patterned paper and decorated the pages.




I used the monkey from the Monkey and Lion die set which I used to decorate the first page of my accordion card. For the to end pages I used the smaller square dies included in the Landscape Rectangle Accordion Die set to add my monkeys and stamped sentiment.


The "Go Bananas!" sentiment uses the new Mini Alphabet and Numbers die set. This set included the main alphabet and a shadow for each of the letters/numbers. I also added a couple more bananas from the Monkey and Lion die set. 

For the centre page I also used one of the rectangles from the Short Rectangles - Crosshatch die set to die cut the patterned paper and layered to the panel. I love how you can change the look of this card by either using the smaller squares or adding a rectangle instead.

I added a birthday sentiment to one of the small squares using an older stamp set.


Here is a look at the front of my card when it is closed, ready to be placed in an envelope.

I added banana bunches to each of the corners for some added interest.
