Karen Burniston Accordion Rectangle Card

This past weekend we had the pleasure of going down to Southern California to help celebrate my nephew's first birthday! What fun! He enjoyed his cake very much and we loved seeing everyone. Of course I had to make him a spiffy birthday card. It's not every day a guy turns a whole year old. ;-) I've been itching to make another card using the Accordion Rectangle die (see my first one here) and this was the perfect opportunity! I love the interactive quality of Karen's dies.

the front when closed
… and the magical opening…

You can hook several of these panels together and make the card as long as you want! I covered the frames with Tissue Tape and painted over it. The center panels are a combination of paint and embossing. I just love the new Robots Blueprints stamps from Tim Holtz. They are so much fun.

Don't forget about the May challenge Pasted! over at Inspiration Journal. You have until the end of the month to share your projects that use some sort of embossing paste and get a chance to win $50 to spend at Inspiration Emporium!
