I’m excited to share with you a cute idea using Karen Burniston’s Gift Card Accordion with Chilly the Penguin.
Here is the card in the closed position:
And here it is opened up:
Use the Gift Card Accordion Die cut to cut the following pieces:
(2) full pages from sturdy red cardstock
(2) pieces from patterned paper, using the paper over the inner rectangle only. Trim to just the rectangles and glue the patterned paper rectangles over the red cardstock pages, taking care to line up the tuck slots on Page 2 perfectly to be able to add a gift card later.
Use the companion Flourish Gift Frame die set to die cut 3 white Flourish Frames. Adhere the frames to the pages, including one for the front of the album when closed.
Assemble the Gift Card Accordion according to the package directions or by watching Karen’s assembly video here: Gift Card Accordion
Die cut Chilly the Penguin using white, black and orange cardstock and assemble him. Make slits between his body and arms. Using gold thread, wrap Chilly as shown.
Die cut the string of Christmas lights from the Holiday House die set four times (1 set each in red, blue, green and yellow) and trim into individual bulbs. For the bulbs that are adhered to Chilly, simply glue them over the thread. For any bulbs that are hanging off of Chilly, sandwich the thread between two bulbs adhered back-to-back
Die cut the largest decorator tree from the Evergreen Pivot Card set and sponge green ink through the die to create the swirl pattern, Adhere the tree to the page with a pop dot and add a glitter star.
Stamp “Santa Says” in green and “Shop!” in red using the Merry & Bright clear stamps. Die cut the circle and add to the page.
Die cut 4 presents and bows using the Evergreen Pivot Card set – one each in yellow, red, green and blue. Assemble the presents and adhere them to Page 2, being careful not to cover the tuck slots that will hold the gift card.
Add your gift card and make someone smile! Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project!
It’s been snowing here – really, really snowing. 17 inches of snow! So I’ve been coloring 🙂 This is Saturated Canary’s Ellie’s Birthday on a Pop It Ups Rectangular Pull Card using Remembering Your Birthday as the sentiment on Best Year Ever Designer Series paper – colored with Copic markers! Did I mention we had a big snow?
When you open it up, balloons from Pop It Ups Props 2 and packages from the Evergreen Pivot card decorate the inside.
And the sentiment says it all! I’ve pulled everything I own out while doing this card! (Did I mention it snowed?) Hugs, Fran
The Designer Challenge for Karen Burniston continues with “white” – white as snow. I chose to use the Evergreen Pivot die and do a Triple Pivot Card Technique. The front of this card uses several different embossing folders, Karen’s Agatha Edges die and Stampin UP’s snowflakes found in the Frosted Sequins.
It’s so hard to see white on white in a photo!
The sentiment is from Beauty of the Season.
