Tina Wenke Winter Accordian Card

Yesterday it was my turn post at the Stampavie DT Blog - and things have been so over booked this week, so I am showing my project here today on my blog :0) If you already saw it over just smile again it here ok?

It started off with my Sizzix Bigz Accordian Album die. Hasn't been used in a while and I thought it might make a nice and different little card or book for someone. Don't know if it will fit in any envelope as it ended up really thick, but I had a lot of fun creating it!
The front, I kept pretty simple. Covered all the chipboard pieces in cream colored card stock and inked them all. Then I found Christmas papers, matted them and sewed them together. The "Title" of my little book I used Tina Wenke's Holiday Hugs sentiment, punched out and then created a pleated flower behind it. Simple ---- then I went to work on the inside :0)


Did I have some fun here or what! I used four of the new Tina Wenke Winter release stamps. Alex in the Snow with Puppies, Jane Skating, Sam skating, and Sarah in the Snow with Kittie Loved all four of these images when I saw them. And all together they just work so perfectly! I colored them with Letraset Promarkers - Then went just nuts with all kinds of embellishments! Twine, snowflakes, buttons, flowers, pleated flowers, Tim Holtz tickets, and even a small little thermometer! Here are some close ups -



 
Hope you like my Winter Accordian Card :0) Are you having fun with new release images? Now if only winter would start to show up here in Texas! But until then I'll just keep coloring winter inside!

See you tomorrow for Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge!
