Hello Crafty Friends and welcome to Day 1 of Sneak Peek week for Karen Burniston's new December 2023 release. This release includes 7 new fantastic dies! I hope you are as excited as I am for this new release.
My card for you today features the new Heart Add-Ons die that coordinates with Karen Burniston's Fancy Label Accordion.
For this card, I started by making four panels using the Fancy Label Accordion die set. I used four different colors of cardstock, teal blue, pink, purple and yellow.
I then die cut the Heart Add-Ons insert using heavy weight smooth white cardstock. I wanted to create candy hearts for the center panel, so I used the Candy Hearts die that comes with the Candy Hearts Box new die set to create all my candy hearts. Once I die cut a bunch, I used a coordinating ink color to give each candy some detail. I glued them all on my white Heart Add-On insert.
I then die cut some red and white glitter cardstock hearts. These hearts come with the new Hearts Add-On die set. I added them to the Heart Add-On. I die cut two white smaller pieces for the Fancy Label Accordion and added them to the first and last panel.I then used Karen Burniston's You're Sweet die to cut out my front sentiment. I carefully cut off the You're part, leaving just the word Sweet. I added that to the front panel. Then I stamped the to my and heart sentiments on the front panel. I added some more candy hearts and some small heart embellishments I had in my stash.
I left the last panel blank to write a personal message.
You may notice that this new add-on requires your Fancy Label Accordion to be backwards from how we normally put the accordion card together, but it's great because it's like turning an old die into a new one!! I did use a heart stamp to create the hearts around each accordion panel. I just love how all of Karen's die can be interchangeable. Thank you so much for stopping by on day 1 of Sneak Peek Week!! Come back tomorrow for another great card using one of the 7 new fantastic dies coming out December 11th.
