Halloween Accordion Card

Good morning friends

I have another Gift Card Accordion to share today, but this time I am using it as a regular accordion card.

Yesterday's Gift Card Accordion used the little rectangle die as a base to write the words Gift Card on - today shows it cut from the PanPastel coloured background rectangle. This allows the background colour through the window, and for a spooky feel I added eyes from Chilly the Penguin and Lucky the Bunny Characters.

The Flourished Frame is gorgeous - it cuts in once piece and easily lines up with the accordion's outer edges. I cut mine from glitter patterned paper which adds a lot to the look as it catches the light. I also used an ECD Transfer sheet and the negative image of pumpkin Peel-Off's for the card.

The Celebrate die comes with the Flourished Frame, as do stacked rectangle dies. The largest one is pretty much the size of the inner rectangle, leaving just a tiny mat. But it covers up the notches for the gift card, so your Gift Card Accordion can do double duty!

I wrote on the back of the card with a gel pen, which showed up great on the black background.

    1. I'm so glad you got these dies, Marlene - you will have fun with them! They are good for so much more than Gift Card Holders, but they sure do make a nice Gift Card Holder too! :-)


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read them all, and appreciate them greatly!
Have a great day,
