Butterfly Label Accordion Card

June 22, 2014

DSC_0079-1Hi Everyone, it’s Jackie here. For today’s card I was inspired by my Lilac trees that are blooming right now with the bold colors of purple, green and the blue sky. I used Karen Burniston’s Accordion Fancy Label die and the Butterfly Labels 1 Peel-offs which match perfect.


1. Cut three accordion pages out of black cardstock using the Accordion Fancy Label die. DSC_0075-12. Cut three more accordion pages using the same die out of patterned paper. We’re going to use these to create 3 frames and 3 fancy labels. To create the frames, cut out the center label of each page and trim each side of the frame a few inches. (You can cut of the long side tab of the frame. Trim this side a few inches as well). To create the fancy labels, trim the two small side tabs of each label. Now assemble you card as shown in the picture below. For 2 of my fancy labels I used the other side of my patterned paper. For more info on how to assemble the Accordion card, watch Karen Burniston’s video HERE.

3. Now it’s time to create the Butterfly Labels. To create the labels, apply two Butterfly Labels 1 Peel-offs onto white cardstock with Double-sided Adhesive on top. Cover peel-offs with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and polish glitter with your finger. Use a brush to brush of the excess glitter. I then colored my Butterfly Labels with TomBow Markers as shown in Els’s video HERE. Once colored, cut out labels and adhere to first and third page of your Accordion card using foam tape.

5. I decorated the front of my card with scalloped glitter edges. To create the edges, apply Double-sided Adhesive onto white cardstock. Then die cut 4 edges using the scallop edge die included in the Fancy Frame Edges set. Take of the release sheet of the Double-sided Adhesive and apply Lavender and Turquoise Silk Microfine Glitter. Adhere edges as shown in the picture at the beginning.
