I just wanted to show you my latest accordion card, I am so addicted to my new Karen Burniston die and just can't stop making them.This time I have used three pages and the lovely promises paper pad from LOTV. Their James the bear stamp was my star again but this time I have colored him differently to try and make him look a bit more furry. I like the result and hope you do too. The technique I used came from a video tutorial from U Tube and I will post a link at the bottom in case it is of interest to you.

|I made a coordinating box for the card from centura pearl card using my ultimate Pro|
|The sentiments stack up on top of each other when it is folded flat|
|I used the same scroll die for the box as well as flowers and pearls|
The stamps are a sentiments set from Lilly of the valley I have stamped them on white card and cut them with a scallop circle die then inked them around the edges with Tim Holtz weathered wood distress ink. I also used this on the rest of the edges of the papers to bring them together. The small bears are from LOTV too and called Posy Trio. I coloured the images using my spectrum noir pens useing the technique I mentioned before. Then I cut them out with a die using the stamping outside a circle techneque (shown on the LOTV website and mounted them on foam pads on top of increasing scalloped circles.
The flowers are from Hobbycraft and the ribbon girl online shop. I just love the daisy.There is just enough room at the bottom of the die for a flower arrangement.
|Just love how this card looks so different from every angle, it is such fun to make|
This is the view from the back, another bow complements the card, as does the final of the three posy trio stamps They are so sweet and easy to use.
