agnes here welcoming you to another digi playground post.
today i am sharing this super cute and easy to make accordion card.
it could be a card or a mantle piece/table decoration for the holidays.
the file is from miss nic squirrell.
i have noticed lots of these accordion cards around the blogs and i thought it was fun to show you how i decorated mine. i did a very simple job because to tell you the truth i did not have much time to spend on it. i bet we all are feeling the christmas rush, :(
anyway, i used a kraft cardstock because i liked the subtle faded plaid design.
i also i used my cricut explore to cut. it did take a bit long but the explore goes kind of slow so that's that :). all very worthy.
on the photos below i am showing the accordion card after cutting it.
you notice i added some snow strip cuts on the roofs and on some windows.
these extra snow cuts DO NOT come with the file.
and a very thin snow bank on the bottom.
the instructions read that it cuts from a single piece of 8.5" x 11". i cut mine on a 12 x 12 and stretched it a bit longer: 11.6" x 3.70" to be exact.
on this photo i started adding some liquid pearls to give the illusion of snow.
i backed it up with kraft color cardstock and colored the open windows with a yellow marker.
the christmas trees were also colored and filled with glossy accents in to resemble ball ornaments.
this is just another view of the card.
i cut a few of them to make christmas cards. i will be adding the greetings and sentiment on the back. i will make sure to add they can be used as christmas decor too. i know they will love them.
please, accept my apologies for the bleed on the trees. i just realized it here but it is too late to change. so again, my sincere apologies for that bleed.
i use a macro setting on my camera and it shows the tiniest details but macro sized, :( therefore the bleed looks huge but is not. :).
and this is it for today.
they file has been linked for your convenience and this is the link for the digi playground store if interested. they have other designs in this fun accordion style.
thanks for stopping by and i would like to
wish you the best christmas celebrations. i hope they are filled with health and happiness.
