Poppy, Katie Accordion - Fall Colours

Good morning friends!

Today's share is a card I made awhile ago - as soon as I received the new Character and Accordion dies by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.  There was also a new Holly Edge for the new Katie Label Accordion, but I chose to cut them out of natural card stock and added fall colours with markers. Love it when a die does double duty!

Oh I love Poppy the Owl.  I cut the body out of patterned paper and the shadow out of kraft, then outlined the body with a fine point black pen to make it pop. I also added Glossy Accents to her eyes and beak. I went over the stitch lines with the same pen so they would really show up even more.

The flourish comes with the Katie Label Accordion, and here I used them as accents above and below the 3-d sticker. I added some hand lettering to the sticker, a button and a little heart. The heart cuts with the Poppy character.

Finally, here is the view from the top and from the back.  I haven't written on the label on the back yet … will wait until I send the card.

I also outlined the labels with both a fine point black pen and a Copic marker to make it look like they had shadows.

Card size:  approx standard A2.
