Hello, today I have a card that I made a while back before I had my blog, so I didn’t take a lot of photos as I was assembling it. I think the Ring Accordion makes a fun and unique card and can be used for any occasion, this is one that I made for my son.

To make this card I used Karen Burnistons Ring Accordion die set (currently retired but possibly found on ebay and there are different shapes as well) It is much easier to create a card in this style if you watch Karen’s tutorial Video (not exact card shape but same principle)
The cardstock colours used for the card and most of the decorations are Night of Navy and Bashful blue, both are from Stampin Up’
For the front panel I wanted there to be a little bit of a wow so I made a shaker element in the middle of the circle. The “Happy Birthday” die I used I found at a thrift store. The decoration around the ring is from Karen’s Ring Frame Edges die set.
The inside of the front panel has a little swing action going on, the greeting from the front swings in but there is a new frame edge on the inside.
The middle panel has the the soccer ball ⚽️ my son loves soccer so I thought it would be a good choice. I am pretty sure I cut the soccer ball out with my Scan N Cut and the splotch was another thrift store find. The ring is also from the Frame edges set.
The last panel I left for signing, I added the LOVE die which I am pretty sure is a Stampin Up die
