Hi Everyone!! My name is Jackie Smith and I was super excited to be asked to join the first ever Elizabeth Craft Designs Design Team! It’s my first post and I’m going to show you how to use Karen Burniston’s newest Pop It Ups Collection dies called ‘Accordion Oval’ to make a real simple card. In this die package comes an oval frame along with 4 nesting ovals plus a heart. I started off using Pool Party paper as my base and cut out 2 frames using the Oval frame die. I wanted to add a layer to both frames which is really easy to do. I first cut 2 frames out of the butterfly paper (Kaisercraft collection – “Enchanted Garden”). I then cut out the oval and cut the frame down 1/8″ along the short and long sides. I did this to all 4 sides of the 2 frames. You can see Karen demoing this die here.
I cut out 2 more ovals using the dies that come with this oval set and stamped the sentiment by Stampendous using Archival ink by Wendy Vecchi. I added a black butterfly peel-off called ‘Daisies in Oval’ and coloured it using Copic Markers on Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. You can see Els demoing it here on her YouTube video.
For the inside of both frames, I cut out the polka Dot border using the Oval Dot Frame Edges. I used double sided adhesive that was placed onto decorative paper. I then applied Fuchsia Silk Microfine Glitter to the left side of the frame and Leaf Green to the right. For the left side I used the black peel-off Daisies in Oval and colored them using Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. I used the following Copic Markers:
For the right side I used the die called “Daisy”. I cut the daisy silhouette out of pink Shimmer Sheetz and the overlay out of black Velvet Adhesive sheet. I used a glue pen for the centre of the flower and added some Fuchsia Silk Microfine Glitter. I then cut the leaves using the leaf die from the same die set using Peridot Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz. I cut out the greeting using the die called ‘Thank You’ from Pink and Black Velvet Adhesive sheets. I laid the black ‘Thank You’ down first and then offset the pink ‘Thank You’ on top.
