Sympathy Accordion Card


Hello my crafty friends and welcome to Fun Fold Friday here on my blog!  Today I'm sharing a sympathy card made with Karen Burnisotn dies, combining the new release with previously released sets.  I have a walkthrough of my card on YouTube:   


This card was actually sent to Karen B to show in her classes. Students love to see lots of ideas for using the different sets and the Design Team likes to be sure she has new things to show. 😊

The With Sympathy fits perfectly on the new Landscape Rectangle Accordion, and it was die cut from a blue mirror card stock. I added layered butterflies from the new Flutter Charms, and the Thinking of You comes from Word Set 10 Thinking Of You. It was die cut from blue and from white card stock, and the two were layered together with the blue layer off-set a little for a shadow look.


The pretty scalloped rectangles are from the new Short Rectangles Crosshatch, cut from the double sided patterned paper. I adhered the scalloped pieces to the back of the inner accordion panels so the pattern shows through on the front side and the paler, yellow pattern is on the back. NOTE  -- I did snip away the scallops from the hinge portion of the accordion so they didn't impede the hinges.  Then I layered another of the Short Rectangles Crosshatch on top, cut from white card stock. The sentiment was handwritten and I added another layered butterfly on the right side. 


The layered butterflies were created by die cutting the solid butterfly twice. Once from blue card stock and once from a coordinating patterned paper scrap. They were layered together with a little thin foam tape just in the centre so the wings have some lift. The butterfly body was cut from a scrap of the blue mirror card stock and finally, the top layer was outlined with Stickles.
