Friday Sketchers and an accordian card

>> Friday, 17 October 2008


Two cards to show you today. The first is an accordian card which I started to make weeks ago but have only just finished! I found the instructions for this card on the Split Coast Stampers website and its actually very easy to make. I used an old cereal box for the front and back covers and Bazzil card for the accordian bit. All the papers are Basic Grey. Tilda is coloured with Prisma pencils and then mounted on pink and burgandy bazzil card. The die cut sunflower is a Quickutz die and I used my circle nestabilities to cut the aperture and frame. Fluffles is also coloured is Prisma pencils and the flowers are Prima. The third page is for the greeting and then the pocket on the final page is for the gift.




My second card is for this weeks Friday Sketchers challenge. It's a lovely sketch and I have kept my card very simple. The papers are DCWV and the card is all bazzil. I've mounted my funky snowgirl a little differently because I didn't have enough of the pink card left! The snowflakes are cut using my new Sissix die.
