I have loved Karen's dies for many years as she has transitioned from Sizzix to Elizabeth Craft Designs and I think her dies just get better and better. So much hard work and thought has gone into these designs and its not just that, she is not one to create and die and leave you figuring how on earth to make it, oh no. There are videos for all of her interactive dies so you can see exactly how to make it. I have lost count of the dies I have purchased elsewhere that contain next to NO instructions and a video that although punchy and fun to look at you have to rewind umpteen times to watch the main instruction again again.
For this card, and it was a special one for my Mum I used for the "Main Attraction" the new CHARM ACCORDION DIE SET
link takes you to Karen Burniston.com but they are on PRE ORDER
THERE IS A PRE ORDER DISCOUNT at Crafts U LOVE BTW
So grab them at the lower prices while you can.
This die set includes 11 Dies including 5 Charms to hang.
Unlike previous Accordions you can make a 2 page card in a single pass
for the main pages as additional pages are added on using the cute little hinge dies. The two moving pages that we are used to joining together now get joined together with the cute little hanging charm frame in between.
Decorating the pages I had to use the Adorable Fox from the
Woodland Animals set. It's so adorable!
and finally, no birthday card is complete without a Birthday Cake and I used the smaller of the two from the
Here is the video to show you how to assemble.
I hope you are as excited as me to see Karen Burniston back.

I will be back with another card real soon, I have Caiden's Birthday coming up so I need to get a wiggle on making that one. And I know just the die set I am going to use for my Cake Loving Son!
