A dear friend of mine sent me a link to a lovely Accordion Card die that she recently purchased. I simply fell in love with the premise of what this die could do so I decided to try my had at re-creating it using the dies I had already : ) I am pretty tickled with the end result actually LOL!
and here’s a closer look at the individual frame and flowers
HCPC 3494 – Delicate Asters PreCut Set
HCD 725 – Decorative Metal Fixtures Die
HCD 726 – Delicate Asters Die
HCD 732 – Decorative Flower Pot Die
HCDP1 234 – Daphne Paper Collection
HCDP1 239 – Majestic Morning Paper Collection
Other products: White Card Stock, Decorative Labels One, Labels One, Opulent Ovals, Modge Podge, Distressed Ink, adhesive and die cutting machine.
Cut 8 pieces of card stock 4 1/2” x 3 1/2” for the frames and attach 4 of them together using 4 1/2″ x 1″ strips scored in the middle. On the back of the frames that you just assembled, mark the center of each frame and attach a 4 1/2″ x 1″ strip on each frame to hold the center frame. Once the glue has set, attach the second set of frames that you made to clean up the back. Next cut 8 of the middle die in the Labels One set and attach to each side of the strips in the center of each frame making relief cuts half way through each strip so the center panel will twist in the desired direction. Complete the panels with Decorative Labels One die cuts and decorate as desired. Don’t forget to add lots of flowers! LOL
I hope to see you again soon. I love to read your comments, thank you so much!
