Did you see the sale at Joan's Gardens this week. She has a sale on some of the great Sizzix dies and embossing folders I love to use. This is one of the dies on sale that is a lot of fun to create a unique style card people are usually wowed by.
This Sizzix die is called the "Accordion Flip 3-D Album", and the insert on each accordion piece was die cut with the matching Sizzix "Bracket Frame & Label" die. With this Accordion Album die, you can create a card with as many panels as you want - two, three, four, five, etc. I die cut the Accordion Flip section four times and attached them together. On the right accordion piece I die cut a piece of vanilla card stock, embossed it with the Sizzix "Corners & Lattice" embossing folder, then sponged with with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
For the embellishments on this album, I used stamps and dies from the Heartfelt Creations "Sun Kissed" Collection. The flower on the left is was stamped using the stamp from the "Striped Sun Kissed Fleur PreCut Set". This collection comes with two different styles of flowers that can be die cut with the same die.
Here is a picture of the two flower sets and the matching die. The die cut all the flowers out at one time. Fabulous!!!!
The leaf behind the flower is from the Heartfelt Creations "Beautiful You PreCut Set" from a previous release. It was die cut using the matching die. On the second and third accordion piece, I die cut two pieces using the Sizzix "Bracket Frame & Label" die and stamped the Heartfelt "Sun Kissed Fleur Background", colored with Distress Markers, then sponged on Tea Dye Distress Ink. On the third accordion, I die cut a piece of the Heartfelt Creations "Sun Kissed" design paper, then used one of the pretty labels from a different piece of design paper in this pad for the frame for the sentiment. The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Creations "Beautiful You PreCut Set". Another dimensional flower created from the "Striped Sun Kissed Fleur" stamp set was attached to the flower printed on the frame.
It is fun to create unique shaped cards, and I always love using the beautiful stamps with matching dies from Heartfelt Creations.
