Accordion Card April 11, 2014

Happy Friday, everyone!  Hope that it’s the start to a wonderful weekend for you.

For this week’s project, I created an accordion card for McMahon Five Designs.   I started out with a Fairydoodler image that is actually part of a set.

As you can see, I chose to use the image of the teenage boy.  I printed him out onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White (80#) and colored him in using a combination of Bic Mark Its and Copic markers.  Then, I used the Karen Burniston Sizzix Accordion Flip 3D Album die, Karen Burniston Frame & Label Bracket die, and Karen Burniston Framelits Labels & Stitched Frames dies to create the accordion card.


For this project, having all the dies in the set really made the project easy to put together.  I kept the image of the boy clean and simple, just using some of the die-cut stitching to embellish his frame.  I used the very heavy Neenah Classic Crest Solar White (110#) for the card base.  Having a sturdy base is especially important with this type of card since so much of it is already cut away.  The blue and polka dot cardstock is from my stash, and the end sentiment, which reads “See you on the flip side” is from TLC Creations.

Just as a note, if you decide to create an accordion card, make sure you decorate the entire card (both front and back, if you choose) before you put the card together!  Although it is possible to still add some embellishments, many things become difficult or impossible to do without taking the card apart first.

If you have a chance, please check out the rest of the Design Team’s projects on the M5D blog.
