MC Mar/16 - Accordion Fold Dress Card - ECD Dream & Happy Birthday - Paris's been a couple years since I made a dress card... One of my quilling friends asked for one that I had made a while back for her birthday... And when she got it, the rest of the gals wanted one too and then they were asking me to teach them how to make one... So I figured I'd better brush up on doing it again. BIG GRIN. This time I incorporated it with the accordion fold frame that I had taught them a while back. They've probably forgotten it. sigh!! so I might have to show them that again too. We'll see. Anyway love the way it turned out and love the Paris in the spring time background stamp. The dress just reminds me of spring.

Anyway you can see all the details and descriptions and links to templates and the other cards etc. by clicking on any card image. Enjoy

Here's the link to the accordion fold frame I came across last year... HERE

I'm using a couple dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Happy Birthday" 1 die and "Dream" also available on Quietfire Design HERE and HERE a couple quote stamps from Quietfire Design "Friendship Isn't a Big Thing..." and "You Are Never Too Old..."
