Ring Accordion for Christmas

Good morning friends

I have a special Christmas card to share, using the Ring Accordion die by Karen Burniston through Elizabeth Craft Designs. This Ring Accordion is a lot of fun to put together!  As with all of Karen B's Accordions, you can choose how many pages to add ... I made this one a 3 page card. Here is a look at the card in the closed position.

I added a Glitter Dot at the base of every open scalloped on the frame, and sprinkled some extra's on for good measure.  To make the Merry Christmas stand out a little more, I carefully drew inside the edges with a fine point black pen.

Inside the card, I added more of those pretty open scalloped frame edges and Chilly the Penguin is front and centre.

A variety of die cut snowflakes decorate the card - each with a Glitter Dot centre.

Before attaching the scalloped white circle (which comes with the Ring Accordion) I penned the words with a fine point black pen.

Here is a top view ...
