Fabulous Find: Elizabeth Craft and Karen Burniston Accordian Dies

Recently Elizabeth Craft and Karen Burniston joined forces to create the uber amazing accordian dies. It really was a match made in Heaven. The dies come in shapes such as the circle, fancy label and oval shape. They are thin, yes thin and are easily stored in a box. These dies are very versatile - you can make cards, mini albums and even banners with the dies. I will show you a few samples over the next few days on the different ways you can use these wonderful dies.

Check out this card by Lorraine from her March reveal which showcases the March 2014 Scrap Shotz monthly kit as well as the Elizabeth Craft and Karen Burniston Accordian Circle die.

Supplies:  Bazzill cardstock; Teresa Collins (pattern paper); Elizabeth Craft/Karen Burniston Accordian Circle Die

Isn't Lorraine's card gorgeous? I have the same die and I could not resist making this Minion card that I saw on Pinterest. It is perfect for an upcoming birthday party that my daughter is attending with a Minion theme!!!!

Supplies:  Bazzill cardstock; Elizabeth Craft/Karen Burniston Accordian Circle Die; Spellbinders (circle die); Prima (alphas); Claudine Helmutt (acrylic paint)

Now let me show you Rosie's jaw dropping card using the Elizabeth Craft/Karen Burniston Accordian Oval Die.

Supplies:  Bazzill cardstock; Elizabeth Craft (word and image stickers); Copics

See that "filigree" on the card front? That too is from Elizabeth Craft and is called the Oval Flourish Frame Edge Die Set. And guess what? The die can be adapted to die cut the filigree for the Accordian Circle die too! I know I just had to have it...and so I have it on order right now. It takes your card from beautiful to Wowzers. Just let Sandy know if you would like your own die. 

What cool projects have you tackled with the Elizabeth Craft/Karen Burniston accordian dies?
