C4C255 - Fall Leaves Accordion Card.

Good morning friends!

I have this post scheduled, as we have just moved and I didn't know if I'd have internet for a few days. The moving truck delivered our belongings yesterday, so this weekend will be spent unpacking. Ha - MOST people would start in the kitchen, but I figure once I have a pan and the coffee maker unpacked I can go into my studio and get that at least functioning. I feel 'off' when I cannot create, and it's been too long since I've had any playtime. Once I have a basic handle on that room- even just to have my dies out, a flat surface to cut on, my Cross-Over machine and some papers/card stock, I will be able to concentrate on the rest of the house. Even though my new studio is BEAUTIFUL and I will want to spend lots and lots of time in there. Ha!

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  Danielle is our September Hostess, and she challenged us 'to incorporate a leaf or leaves into our project'.

I went in a different direction than you would think, ha ha.  But there are leaves printed on the patterned paper, so that counts.

I used the Katie Label Accordion die and created a two page card. The shape of this die mimics the Katie Label Pivot card (also by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs) so you can easily mix and match the layers.

The words were stamped on the vellum with Momento ink then heat set, and I outlined them on the back side of the vellum with a Copic Marker.

Love that ECD 'sprig' die so it was fun to use it on this card. The flourish die comes with the Katie Label Accordion and the Designer Challenge Team continues to come up with all kinds of ideas using it.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Crazies come up with for the challenge, and link up your leafy projects too. We love to see what you create!
