This one's blue!

Following this week's theme, here's another accordion card but in a blue colour scheme.

"Blue Christmas"

The closure for this card uses vintage lace (thanks Lee!) rather than the baker's twine of my previous accordion cards.

"Inside Panel"

The background for each panel is decorated with inks, stamping and silver perfect pearls, then stickers from Tim Holtz' Seasonal Stash are attached (I use a little pva for extra security), and snowflake embellishments are inked with matching distress inks before glueing in place with PVA.

"Snowflakes on the other side"

On the other side of the card, one of the panels is left plain so there is space for a handwritten greeting.


The front of the card has patterned paper and a sticker from Tim Holtz' Seasonal stash.
