Accordion Card

Accordion Card
          Hi friends it feels so good to be able to squeeze in time for crafting once again. This 4 panel accordion card is my DT project for Maureen's Rudolf Days Challenge .
       I chose to go with unconventional  Christmas colors  pink and baby blue but added quite a lot of white in the form of  snowflake borders[Memory Box dies]  ,white lacy arch borders above each panel [ cut using Marianne dies] and  2 beautiful white poinsettias  made by heat embossing poinsettias [from Rubber Dance Art] on vellum and fussy cutting them.
Christmas Accordion Card
     All 4 of my panels feature  gorgeous stamps from Rubber Dance Art . Though clear stamps are so popular nowadays I somehow just love rubber stamps...I feel one can never go wrong with them!!
The Candle , Poinsettia , Gift Box and Bow  stamps were heat embossed gold and water-colored with  Zig Brush Pens[You can read more about these pens here : Zig Brush Pens Introduction and Zigs Water-coloring Tips .
Christmas Accordion Card
The base was made with an Elizabeth Craft Designs oval accordion die [you can see more examples here : Pop Up Accordion Cards] but I chose not to connect the central panels as I found that the cards tended to buckle over time if I did that.
Christmas Accordion Card
The 2 gift-boxes turned out soo cool but I couldn't quite capture their beauty in the photos! The leafy oval frames are from Poppy Stamps [ I just love whatever die this company makes and always lament I  get only limited designs here in India!!].The gorgeous glittery pine leaves adding charm to all my poinsettias were also die cut using Poppy Stamps dies.
Christmas Accordion Card
I didnt add bulky embellishments so this card will fold flat for mailing! I hope you liked this card.
       Dont forget to participate in Maureen's Rudolph Days Challenge ...the theme is always Christmas , the inspiration from the DT and the participants is always fabulous and Maureen always has fabulous prizes which she ships worldwide!!
