Mother's Day Accordion Card


Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing a Mother's Day Accordion card I created recently. I know Mother's Day was a few weeks ago now, however this could easily be adapted for a birthday or other occasion for someone special.

For my card today I used Karen Burniston's new Landscape Rectangle Accordion die set that was released last week. I die cut the main "pages" of the card three times from pink cardstock and three times from patterned paper. I cut the centres out of the patterned paper pieces and then adhered the frames to the front and back of the first page and the front of the last page.

I used the stencil feature on the die to sponge in the stripes to the page in the centre.

I used one of the rectangle dies from the Short Rectangles - Crosshatch die set to die cut white rectangles which I adhered to the centre of each panel.

I used dies from the Dolled Up Charms die set to add the nail polish, lipstick and perfume. The purse uses the purse die from the Purse Pop-up die set.

I added the Happy Mother's Day to the centre panel, die cutting it from pink and black cardstock and layering together.

For the last panel I added the nail polish (hidden behind the fold on the photo above) and lipstick to the last panel. I also added the "Love You" sentiment which is from the Pop 'N Swap die set.

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

I added a border using a die included in the Border Blends - Trims die set to the top and bottom edges of all the patterned paper panels.
