Christmas Mouse Ring Accordion Card

Good morning friends

Before I get to today's card I wanted to share the fun news that Karen Burniston has some new dies and stamps that are being previewed THIS WEEKEND at the Collins show! So exciting ... there is a new Character (Lucky the Bunny), two new Props, a fabulous new Gift Card Accordion, as well as two clear stamp sets. Woot!

Unfortunately mine have not arrived yet, so I don't have anything made with them but you can check out my fellow Designer Challenge Teammates on the right of my blog for some sneak peeks.  While I find it extremely frustrating how long it takes mail to come to Canada from Elizabeth Craft Designs, the good news is that tracking shows my package has cleared customs. I can't wait to show you Karen Burniston's new creations!!!

Edited to add:  I just realized that this card qualifies for Karen Burniston's September 2015 Designer Challenge. Celebrate (Christmas) and Frame Edges.  Woot! I also have a card ready for tomorrow and Tuesday.

Onto today's share - the card uses my favourite Accordion - the Ring Accordion. Here is the front of the card, folded up as it would come out of the envelope:

I added Ring Frame Edges, snowflakes with Glitter dots, and used stamps from Karen Burniston's 'Merry & Bright' clear stamps through Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Here is the inside ... I couldn't resist adding Jolly the Mouse with his cute candy cane.

More Glitter Dots were added around the centre Frame Edges ... you know how much I love those Glitter Dots! I added ECD Double Sided Adhesive to the back of red card stock before cutting the Frame Edges, so I kept all the little red circles that came out of these centre frame edges. They have the adhesive on the back already, and will make cute Rudolph noses or holly berries on future cards.

Here is the back of the card ...

This card was a lot of fun to make. I adore using aqua and red and I think Jolly is SO cute!
