Tulip Oval Accordion Card

Happy New Year!!

I've decided to start a 'Throwback Thursday' section to my blog ... as I seem to have more and more older cards sitting in the To Post File.  Today's Throwback Thursday card is an Oval Accordion I made to demo at Paper Pastimes in Calgary last winter.

The Tulip Peel-Off's were adhered to water colour paper, and coloured with water colour pencils and a wet brush. Then they were fussy cut so I could pop them up on the oval panels with foam tape.

These Flourished Frame Edges are SO pretty! If you adhere double sided adhesive to white card stock before die cutting, they are easier to adhere then trying to get glue on all the little flourishes.

I added gold glittery Peel-Off borders for some sparkle and shine, as well as a sparkly butterfly body & Happy Birthday die cut.

The card was assembled at the Demo, so I took the pictures there afterwards. Sorry the pics are a little 'busy'.

Here is the card all folded up and ready to pop in an envelope ...
