Laurie's Birthday Card.

This is a card for one one  my dearest friends, Laurie. Lots of time and die cuts on this one and some pretty designer paper.


I love interactive cards so I decided to use the oval accordion die by Karen Burniston that I have had for awhile but not used often enough.

                      Elizabeth Craft Designs - Accordion Oval Card                                                            *NEW - Elizabeth Craft Designs - Katie Flourish Frame Edges
I cut the frames in black and in some pattern paper and I layered them. I was going to take pictures of each panel before I linked the panels together but I did one and forgot to do the others. Here is the one I remembered.

I did a total of five panels. The front panel

and four inside panels.
