Cats and Dogs Accordion Birthday Card

Accordion Card
        Hi friends Thank you so much for the sweet supportive comments on my daughter's felt charms! Sharing an accordion card I had made as a birthday card for my daughter[ the Pom Pom Bunny Card shared earlier was made for my mum to give my kiddo!].
Accordion Card
My daughter loves cats and dogs so I could make a simple interactive card by using some cute feline and puppy stickers .
Accordion Card
We have 2 dogs at home...one is a Cocker Spaniel and the other is a Lhasa Apso and I was thrilled that the  doggy stickers I used looked somewhat like our own fellas!
Accordion Card
Well the puppies and kittens need a garden to play in so added a floral themed pattern paper  and simple punched florals and Itsy Bitsy flowers.
Accordion Card
The lacy border atop was made using a Spellbinders die and subtly shaded with Distress Inks  to match the pink of my flowers.
Accordion Card

        It looks like such a  simple card but this was made on the eve of her birthday after a long day of baking, preparing party food   for the birthday party , racking my brain for party games and of course all the  cleaning and decorating so it felt like a mammoth undertaking!!
Oh Yes we did have a themed party this year too...my daughter seems to have the idea that a birthday is grand only when it has a theme!! 
Ooh the pressures of modern day motherhood!!

  6. It's raining Cats & Dogs! I could not resist since we have been having lots of rain here in Central TX w/ flooding in some areas. Back to the creation - wonderful style with animals & embellishing. I've always been a Dog person and currently have a Mixed Lab/Retriever/and some other Mix named Daisy that will be 9 yrs old this Aug that I rescued/adopted from the shelter in 2014. Had her groomed yesterday. Also, I have a dog care/walk business in which I take care of people's dogs in their homes so they do not have to put them in a kennel/boarding facility when the people go away on vacation & walk dogs. Have a Bee-utiful day!

    1. Nancy I have found that if you attach the center ovals together with the little rectangle flaps which is part of the die cut the cards tend to buckle after some time so now I just snip off that part and leave the centre ovals alone as in this one...it folds more easily and displays more beautifully without buckling

  40. A beautiful card for your daughter. Her birthday seemed to have come around quick. I am sure that she would have enjoyed all that you had organised for her and have such special memories when she is much older.
