Hello Love-C4C569

I’ve had a busy week so I decided to take an older card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge is to use the word “Love“ or to have a heart on our cards. I have used the word love 3 times and I have several hearts. Fun fact this is the first Interactive card I made using Karen Burniston dies, and as you can see by my blog it was only the beginning. Back then I wasn’t doing a blog post so I don’t have as many photos of the progress but I will do my best to explain. I am a firm believer in using what you have, you may not have exactly what I have or maybe can’t even get exactly what I have but that doesn’t mean you can’t use this card as a starting point to create something of your own. I am adding some suggestions for alternate options below.

All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.

Sssshhhhh Moms Belated Birthday Card

Edit- I have many people ask where to get this dieset, unfortunately it is not longer available (possibly on eBay or Amazon) it is called the Accordion Ring die set from Karen Burniston. Currently she has the Fancy Label Accordion dieset for sale on her website. Same idea just a different shape.

I am soooo far behind in everything this year 🙄 here is a belated card for my mom. The postal service is so far behind here I’m not sure when’s she’s going to get it, she still hasn’t gotten her Mother’s Day card 🙄. Anyway this is what I came up with

Time Flies Accordion Card

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 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

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.

Golden Accordion Christmas

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.
