Accordion cards make such an impact and are fun to open, they are also very easy to display as they stand up very nice. Here is an accordion card that I made a little while back, I hope you like it.
All the cardstock used to make this card is from Stampin Up. The colours used are Not Quite Navy, Buckaroo Blue, Basic Grey, and silver. The panels are cut out of the Basic Grey and the edges were sponged with Basic grey. The blue panels were sponged with Not quite Navy ink., All the clock pieces and gears were cut out of silver with the exception of the hands on the front clock.
To create this card I used Karen Burnistons “Gift Card Accordion” die set and followed these directions https://youtu.be/bzB7Auai1QU my card has 4 panels so you would just keep adding panels as needed. The clock and some of the gears are also an older Karen Burniston die set. The die on the second panel I lucked out and found at Thrift store.
I decorated the panels with the clocks, gears and a few rectangle dies. I printed the greeting “Time Flies” on the front and “when you’re getting old” on the inside.

Under the Sea Baby Accordion Card
The Journey Begins
I have been asked to make several cards in the past, but this is a first, I was asked to make a baby card with a shark theme. Hmmmmm I’ve never really thought of a shark theme for a baby card. I was sent a couple of photos of babies room and sure enough it had a shark/ocean theme (there was also a picture of a whale 🐳) sooooooo this is what I came up with, and I have to say it turned out pretty cute.

Here is a beach themed card that I made a little while back for a friend who loves her beachy vacations, so I thought she would enjoy this card. She enjoys her rum & coke so that is what Rocky the Crab is enjoying as well.

There is something about Vanilla and Gold together that makes this card feel warm, or is it just me? This was a card I made for a coworker a few Christmas’s ago to give to his mother for Christmas. This was was a feel-good moment for me as I knew money was really tight for him that year so I decided to just give it to him, I really made his day as he was sure his mother would really enjoy the card, and he really wanted to give her something special.

This card was fun to make but a little on the tricky side (both chairs have to line up perfectly or the card won’t close). But I was determined to make his and her chairs with his and hers drinks. In the end, it came out like I planned and my sister and her hubby got a real kick out of their card.
