Celebrations @ A Vintage Journey

Hi and welcome - today we are sharing the Celebrations of life over at
A Vintage Journey.  It is my turn to host and I invite all of you to show what you celebrate during the month of June.  Simply make something showing a celebration and link it up, you could be the lucky winner of a great prize.  You will, as always, be treated to awesome inspiration from the Creative Guides.  Your creation can celebrate the last day of school, a graduation, an anniversary, a wedding, Father's Day or a birthday.

I made a colorful accordion card using Tim's Birthday Blueprint Stamp Set from Stampers Anonymous and Karen Burniston's Katie Label Accordion Die from Elizabeth Craft Designs.


Here's How I Did It!

 I stamped the Blueprint Stamps on white paper.

I colored them with my Chameleon Pens and cut them out.

For the base of the card I cut the Katie Label Accordion four times from manila cardstock, stamped the panels and connected them together. 
I edged the entire thing with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink. 
Next the colored pieces were added to the panels

After cutting the Katie Stars Frame Edges from 4 different colors they were added to each panel.  The final step is to connect the panels with the tabs making the accordion.

Celebrate something special in June-
