Accordion Cards by the DT:

 Serendipity has come out with some wonderful new dies, I love this one!
I have always been drawn to the sea. When I heard that Miriam (oh so talented!) was working with SS to assist in the design of a Lighthouse Die, I couldn't wait. Nice job, it turned out fabulous!

The Lighthouse Die was cut once in the red. I ran the die through three more times only embossing, not cutting.

There was a reason for my accordion card to be folded backwards! I wanted my sentiment to be showing in the center of the front of my card. I also wanted the G45 image to be seen through my window!

The sentiment, "My Life" has been inked with Memento Nautical Blue.

This is the back side of the card. The left panel is where you would write your individual message. The middle image is what you see on front when the card is closed. The right panel is the backside of the die cut window!

Thanks for Looking! 
What can we see through your window?
Hope you join us in the SSCB Window Challenge

  1. Just gorgeous! I love the nautical themed papers, and the die cut lighthouse goes perfectly. A very clever card!

  2. Flat out AMAZING! Karen, your card is beautiful, and I love the way the different panels all work together! It was great to see you last Friday! :)

  3. Love your card! As Pauline said, a very clever card indeed!

  4. A beautiful card Karen - it reminds me of a beautiful post card from a far away place. Great way to show off that pretty paper and not cover it up!

  5. Amazing! Front and BACK! Love that the little lights are lit up in the lighthouse (how's that for alliteration) and that you have the lighthouse in two color schemes. Great lighthouse book - The Light Between Oceans by ML Stedman.

  6. Amazing stunning! I have that beautiful paper all I need now is to order that lighthouse,

  7. I love everything about it! It is spectacular on both sides.

  8. This is fabulous, Karen! Love the colors, the papers and the wonderful way it all comes together.

  9. This is really beautifully done, Karen. Such a joy to look at!!

  10. Hey, Karen, what a really lovely card. I agree on the die. I just got my peacock stamp and can't wait to use it. I love your whole card fold and design too! How creative with the front and back too!

  11. You must have spent day's on this. I wish I had the words to tell you how awesome this is. Awesome
