ID: DT Feb/15 - Accordian - A Smile - LOVE Fill 'er Up card
size: 5.25"w x 5.25"h (card closed)

Created: January 28, 2015

I got the newest stamps from Quietfire Design  "LOVE - Fill 'er Up" and new it had to be made into an accordion card...

I'm also using a quote stamp that was meant for Xmas... but masked off the word "Christmas" and put in the word "Birthday" BIG GRIN


I die cut several of the Spellbinders Label 41 Decorative Accents from white cardstock, sponging with Distress "Seedless Preserves".

Used the negative of the die cut to create an eCut file that is the same size as my die cut as an under layer and cut with my Cameo from white cardstock. Completely sponged it with the preserves.

eCut a larger piece and then a shadow of the larger piece. Ran the large piece through my embossing machine with Cuttlebug "Kassie's Brocade", hit the high points with "Mustard Seed". Left the shadow layer plain white.

Adhered a piece of yellow satin ribbon as hinges, adhering a piece to the front and back. Adhered my large yellow embossed piece. Adhered the preserves under layer.

Stamped the large Fill 'er Up letters on white cardstock using Versafine Black onyx. Created a mask from tracing paper, leaving a nice white border around the letter, then stamping with various floral stamps (Flourishes "Orchids" & "Clematis") with the black stamp pad. Colored with Prisma colored pencils. Adhered to under layer and then adhered the die cut.

Applied Quickie glue pen to the inside of each letter, again leaving a white border, then sprinkling with Stickles dry glitter "Cinnamon".

Inked the butterfly (7 pce set - Quietfire Design) using the Distress "Spun Sugar" & "Seedless Preserves", misted with water and stamped, fussy cut around it and adhered to the "V" piece"


On the front, hit the high points of the embossed layer with the preserves. Used the under layer sponged with the mustard, stamped the quote on the center drop out piece of the die cut using the black and clear embossed.

Added a piece of the yellow ribbon and a bow. Wrote on the ribbon with a colored pencil "xoxo". Added white pearl flourishes, and as a final touch added a quilled yellow ladybug.

On the back, eCut the large piece from gold parchment stationary.
