Have Yourselfie a Merry Little Christmas with Karen Burniston's Landscape Rectangle Accordion

 Hello and welcome! Today's card uses Karen Burniston's Landscape Rectangle Accordion and My Favorite Things BB Christmas sELFies

For this card, I die cut three panels from the Landscape Rectangle Accordion die set using red and green cardstock. Then, using a patterned paper, I cut three more panels. I then trimmed the middle part from each patterned paper panel, then using Karen Burniston's Short Rectangles - Crosshatch biggest die, I cut each panel out. 

I glued these to the red and green main panels. Then, I die cut three more panels using a green and white snowfall patterned paper and a red and white sparkly paper. I trimmed away the outer part of the panel and used only the inner piece to give my "selfie" pictures a background to sit on.

I stamped the images from MFT BB Christmas sELFies using Pinkfresh Studios Detail Black ink and colored them in using Copic markers. I die cut the images using one of the rectangles pieces that comes in the Landscape Rectangle Accordion and glued them to the first panel and the last panel. 

For the center panel, I die cut a small rectangle from the Short Rectangles - Crosshatch and stamped the "Have Yourselfie a Merry Little Christmas" sentiment from the stamp set using Pinkfresh Studios Detail Black ink. 

I then die cut a stocking and a candy cane from Karen Burniston's Holiday Charms die set and added them to the center panel. I also added some detail to the pieces using Copic markers and a white Gelly Pen. 

I wanted to add some snowflakes to the panels, so I die cut some snowflakes using the snowflake die that comes in Karen Burniston's Snowman die set. 

I added some more white shine lines on the "selfies" using a Gelly Pen. 

Then, using my Lineco Neutral PH glue, I glued the tabs together to create the accordion. 

I think I glued these the wrong way, so I had to make a front panel for this card. I wanted to keep it simple, since when the recipient opens this card there are so many things to look at. So, I kept the same green snowfall paper and die cut a Merry Christmas sentiment from Karen Burniston's Merry Christmas die and the shadow die that goes along with it. 

I die cut a larger snowflake from white sparkly cardstock using one of the snowflakes from the Holiday Charms die set. 

I just think these accordion cards are so neat! It's a unique way to send someone a special greeting. 

I am very excited to announce that in the New Year I will be starting a YouTube channel, so stay tuned for some fun videos on card making using all kinds of products, including coloring techniques. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
