Hello People...

Def Love is all around, I had happened to see a accordation style card sometime back but then it was made with a die. and I dont have dies, The idea of the card appealed soo much to me that I somehow and anyhow wanted to make it.

This gorgeous die is designed by Karen Burniston who is an acclaimed designer for Sizzex and this die can be purchased from here
I thank Karen for making such a fab die which looks awesome !!!

Here's what I made :)
This is how the card looks like when opened.. and well.. who would want to keep it closed and locked.. :)
This is my bestest till date.. and I love it!

This is the front of the card.. Sorry for the blurred pic .. but this was the best one out of the whole lot of the front pictures..
