Accordian Card (Square) - Ivy Overlay

What a lovely sunny day it is now that the fog has lifted. So far today I have picked up a few bargains from Ikea this  morning and popped into B & Q for a bacon buttie! Now I have to get into gear and start working on a new project (more news on this in a few weeks).

On to today's post. I want to share with you an Accordian card I made a few months ago. These are the Die'sire die's and overlays. While the card itself was easy to put together, taking a decent photograph proved to be a little more difficult.

I went for a double sided look, here is the green side:

And here is the purple side:

I managed to get glitter absolutely everywhere when making this one, even on the cat. 

Thank you for popping by x

  1. Very effective, a friend has these and brought them to class to show us. I'm interested but will wait till they have some non christmas overlays..

    1. Hi Ali, I have nearly finished making a card with no overlays which looks pretty but I am hoping they will bring some non christmas ones out too x

  2. Hi Angela this is a stunning card. I made a card in this style and I found it difficult to photograph. Hugs Jackie

  3. These are amazing Angela :) Have the baubles got glossy accents on, they appear to be glossy and shiny? Debs x

    1. Thank you Debs, yes they do have glossy accents on them and also on the sentiments as well x

  4. I really like the folds on these cards, the purple is my favourite

  5. Stunning card - well worth a bit of glitter on the cat!

  6. How lovely; what an intricate make :-)
