I knew I wanted to make an accordion card for Owen but I had no further idea beyond that so first I went looking for some patterned papers. I chose a couple of Authentique patterns and on the back of one of the papers I saw the typewriter and text and I knew I could incorporate them into my card design. Also I'd come across the typewriter key toppers while rootling in my paper stash so I was now up and running. I cut the typewriter and words out separately so I could spread them out over the three accordion panels. I stacked all the typewriter key toppers onto a couple of punched circles to give some dimension. I embellished each accordion panel with four silver nailheads.
Here's a closer look at panel one.
Here's a closer look at panel two.
Here's a closer look at panel three.
Here's the back panel. I used a Dymo labeller to make the sentiment.
I made an envelope with the gorgeous blue and black damask patterned paper, added a grey strip and finished with a popped up fancy tag name label.
I'm very happy to say that Owen loves his card and envelope! We're off out shortly for a birthday brunch and then on Saturday evening we're out with friends for a yummy curry.
