Two Baby Boy Accordion Cards

Good morning friends!

Today I have two baby cards to share, using the new Pop it Ups dies by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

The cards are nearly identical ... I cut this first one, then stamped and coloured the duck and the mouse image. I laid them out on the Fancy Frame Accordion and didn't like that both images were facing the same direction. I still wanted to use both of them, since I was in the mood for a baby boy card ... so I decided to cut two more Fancy Frame Accordion panels and make two cards.

Here is the first card closed. The little duck pivots around to the front so I usually like to add a little somethin' somethin' so it looks more finished.  In this case I added two yellow borders cut with the Fancy Frame edges.

Here is what the back of the card looks like. I stamped the word 'baby' on one of the labels that come with the Lucy Label Pop Up set, then stamped the rest of the greeting below that.

A few hand snipped banners, a button and a piece of silk ribbon adorn the top left corner.

The card from the back ... I used one of the leftover hearts from a different baby card to decorate one of the back panels. We can hand-write our message on the remaining one.

Here is a look at the 2nd card.  I used the Fancy Frame Edge die in the way it was intended on this card ... cutting 4 and attaching them one by one over the Accordion page.  I love the perfectly mitered corners on these frame dies, AND that you get three different ones to choose from in the package.  I also attached a pretty scalloped washi tape border on two of the card stock strips before I die cut it.

This card also has a button and that lovely silk ribbon ...

The inside was done the same as the first card, and I added a punched heart to the back of one of the panels.
