Accordion New Home Card


I recently a Sizzix 3D Accordion Album cutting die on one of the many Facebook craft selling groups.  I don't make cards very often but this die caught my interest and I thought it would be a useful die to have.  It is a discontinued die so not one you can easily get hold of but the designer of the die now designs similar dies for Elizabeth Craft Designs so if you like it take a look at those.

With this die you have to cut several pieces and then join them together to form the accordion.  You can basically add as many pieces as you want depending on your project.  For my card I just cut 3 pieces.

I heat embossed the frame part with clear embossing powder and used a Stampin Up swirl stamp.  I found that Spellbinders Label no 1 is exactly the same shape as the centre part so I used that to cut out some design paper to decorate it.

As a first attempt, I was pleased with the final result.  I think it makes an eyecatching card that is abit different from your usual open and close card styles.

Hope you like it too :)
