Festive Accordion

I have made a festive accordion for this weeks Creative Expressions DT piece using the Stylish Christmas 1 by Sam Poole.
I have used Ranger Archival Ink in Vermillion, Coffee and Distress Ink Fired Brick for my stamping.
To create the circle I used a Spellbinders die and used the aperture as a stencil.
The rusty stars I found in my stash and I thought they were the perfect addition to my card.
The reverse of my accordion.
A close up to show the amazing detail of the stamps.  Again I have used a Spellbinders die as an aperture and added the robin to the circles.
I really enjoyed working with these stamps and I now have another card for my collection, RESULT!

Thanks so much for stopping by, Tracy x x

What a lovely card Tracy. So much detail to look at. I now know that the stamp I wasn't sure of is a tree!! Obvious now that I see it. Think I need to wear my glasses more!
