U Did It Accordian Flip Card

Hi all -

Have you been having a good weekend?  I’ve been having a good one sitting back and relaxing and doing a bit of crafting using some new goodies.

I picked up a couple of fun Bigz Dies from Sizzix: the Accordion Flip die and coordinating Label & Frame, Bracket die. And since the Lawn Fawn stamp sets are back in stock at the Inspiration Emporium I decided to give those a whirl (or an inking).

The result is an extra big congratulatory card with four panels that flip. :D


In order to take a picture of the front I had to use a small clothespin the keep it closed. Lots of dimension on this project.  For the first panel I spelled out “U did it” using Thickers foam stickers.


Since I was going for a nature theme, I used Burlap ribbon and some twine as decoration. Throughout the card I used Walnut Stain to distress the panels and even the white foam letters (they were just too bright). And for a final touch I added a stamped mushroom that was embellished with Glossy Accents and glitter after coloring with Copic markers.


The second page features a couple of trees and a little birdie.  I added some drops of dew to the trees using Glossy Accents and more of the glitter (just a very light dusting).


The third page features a cute porcupine and the first of the chat bubbles. I cut a circle from Burlap and added some rhinestones and liquid pearls as embellishment.


The final page features the foxy fox and a second chat bubble.  Woo – hoo.  Such a fun project and I hope you enjoyed it!
