Designer Suzanna Lee here today with an Easter project for you.

Using an accordian card die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, I created this fun Easter home decor. Each of the backgrounds is not only a different color but a different cardstock as well. I used some Core Essentials cardstock  and some Core Impressions in various designs. See my supply list for more details.

The oval of each panel is cut using white cardstock and individually decorated using more die cut cardstock and some stamps.

Emboss bits and pieces of the panel for added texture like I did here with the tulip. Then shade it with Gelatos for a hint of ombre color and shading. Scor the outer edge of this panel and sand to frame the letters.

 Embellish each oval shape and make a quick nest out of some twine like I did below:

    WOW wow WOW
    Your card is TOTALLY AWESOME Suzanna!!!
    LOVE each panel, colour and texture … I really need to learn more about this fancy fold :)

    Thanks Tracy! It’s not so much a fancy fold as a die from Elizabeth Craft. It’s one piece that you cut out multiples of and glue together. It comes in different shapes (oval, circle, square, etc). I believe Silhouette has cut files that do the same thing. Hope that helps!
