Accordion Cards

I have wanted to own the  Sizzix Accordion Die by Karen Burniston for so long but it always seems to be out of stock!  I luckily managed to get one and have been really enjoying making cards with it.  I have love the cards other people have made - there really are some amazing designs out there.  

Here are some of my pics of my first attempt - I used the amazing Tattered Lace Dies as they are just so beautiful and I need more of them  (perhaps also will soon need a bigger house - must try not to buy any more crafty items for the next few months and just enjoy all the wonderful things I already have!)  The Happy Birthday die is a Cuttlebug die.

I am trying to limit my colour palette as I am alway thinking I need more colour or more bling....

This picture is of the extended height accordion die (I think there was a tutorial to show how to do this - sorry can't remember if it was on Karen Burniston's Blog but probably was).  This make the die much more versatile for me. I don't have the matching die so used Spellbinder label dies.  Also used more of the Tattered Lace dies.

Thanks for looking and I would love it if you had time to leave a comment with any feedback.

  1. Wow Jacky, your cards are VERY impressive, you should definitely go onto Karen Burniston's blog and let her know what you have done, she would be very impressed. I did not find it so easy to do the extended one but yours is brilliant. Hugs, Anne x
