Happy Birthday, Friend + Giveaway Friday

Hi Everyone !!!!  Dawn B (Dip 'n Dots Creations) here with a sneak peek of the new Kanji Stamps (with a giveaway at the end) !! These new stamps are a collection of Asian Art.  They have symbols with their meanings, a few background images and a few flowers.

Here is my project:

I decided to try my hand at an accordion fold card.  I used the Ultimate Tool and the directions that came in the booklet for an accordion fold card.  It was pretty easy to follow the directions and the Ultimate Tool made the folds so easy to make.  I also used a decorative cutter that I have to make the curvy top edge. I added some pearls to kinda soften the corners a little bit and I also added a strip of ribbon and a bow with a pearl brad.  The symbol that I used on the front of my card is "Friendship", I also added one of the fans with just a little bit of color added to it.

Here is my card opened to reveal all three panels:

On my center panel, I added the other fan, also with just a hint of color.  For the back panel I used the symbol for "Happy Birthday". This is a Birthday Card for a friend.

Be sure to stop by the Crafter's Companion blog  every day to see all the Sneak Peeks from different stamp collections that are coming to Crafter's Companion, and check out all the awesome creations from the new design team.

Thanks for Stopping By !!!!
