Vintage Accordion Flip Card by Linda Cain
Hey everybody! It’s time for some Sizzix fun! I was lucky enough to get my hands on some great dies from Karen Burniston and decided to make a Flip 3-D Vintage card.
So let’s get started.
First I cut 4 pieces of Manila cardstock with the Sizzix Bigz Die – Accordion Flip 3-D die.
Then the Pop’nCuts Magnetic Insert Die- Square Ornate 3-D (Pop-Up) was used to cut 4 frames with the Tan and White paper from My Mind’s Eye.
The backgrounds were painted with Fresco Paints and stamped images were added using Jet Black Archival Ink and various colors of paint. I used a large Stamp Block stamp as the 1st background on the each section. Then I added smaller images to fill in. Among the stamps used on the girls were ones from Urban Chic, and the compass from the Classic #1 set is on the boy’s.
Some Distress Inks – Tea Dye and Vintage Photo were used on the boy’s frames with the Apothecary Stamp from Tim and Archival Jet Black Ink. A script stamp with Broken China was stamped onto the girl’s frames.
I used Scor-Tape to adhere the 4 sections together. Don’t forget to cut off the last edge.
I didn’t glue the 4 frames together with the little tabs like you’re supposed to; I just cut them off of the sides so the pictures would float free. I backed up the frames with black cardstock to make the holes stand out more and added black Rhinestones at the top and sides. The little wooden charms with gold nailheads to cover the holes are glued on last.
This would make a great card you could fill with your ancestor’s photos or your kids. Give it to someone to put on their mantle or their desk at work to remind them to count their blessings!
Hope you enjoyed this, and let us know if you have any questions or thoughts.
