"Let It Snow" Accordian Flip Card

Good morning friends!

For those of you who don't know, my friend Sue lives in a town a few hours away from me. On the first of each month we pop something in the mail to each other. This month I knew I was going to be really busy about that time, so I made - and sent - her November First early.  I'm going to post it early too!

I have been wanting to play more with Karen Burniston's Accordian Flip Album die, so of course I pulled it out for Sue's card.  This is one of those cards that practically made itself. I knew I wanted to do something with a winter theme; I looked at those cute felt mittens and next thing I knew I was done!

I also used Karen B's Bracket Frame and Label die, which makes decorating the Accordion Flip Album a breeze. Nothing like having the sizing all worked out for you.  :-)  Not that I'm lazy, but math and I just do not get along.

Below is the card closed, with the front showing.

I used PTI's snowman hat die and coordinating face on a punched circle for the snowman embellishment. He turned out even cuter than I pictured in my head!

This is the card closed with the back showing...

The Accordian Flip Album pieces (two of them) were cut from pale blue textured card stock, while the Bracket Frame and Label's were cut from patterned papers. (Don't know WHAT happened to the shade of blue on the photo above - it looks completely desaturated! It is the same paper as on the other photos, and really does match perfectly.)

When I say 'Let it Snow', I just mean it in the spirit of the upcoming season - I do NOT mean it literally, ha ha.

Supplies used:
Karen Burniston's Frame and Bracket Label die (Sizzix)
Karen Burniston's Accordian Flip Album die (Sizzix)
Patterned paper - K & CO for the red and blue, from my stash for the blue snowflakes
Bakers Twine
