Lucky Dog Accordion Card

Hello everyone! Today I have a quick post to share of a Sizzix mini accordion card, perfect for someone who likes dogs.
I used the pretty Graphic 45 Raining Cats & Dogs Collection, as well as the new Sizzix Mini Heart Album by Jillibean Soup. The vintage dog stickers are so cute, and were given central stage on this card. The base was die cut from patterned paper and since these papers are double-sided they were perfect for the card. There is a flap that folds down behind the die cut shapes (the heart, label and butterfly), so the paper you see through the die cut openings is the back of the text paper. This is an XL die so you need the extended cutting pads.
I glued the positive heart shape on top of the negative die cut and added some dimension by folding the heart in the middle. I also added some word stickers and printed chipboard shapes.

The 'My Dog' sticker was placed on top of a chipboard button.
The card is only 2 in high and it is fun to work in this small format now and then.

On the front, I added the die cut label from the inside, another chipboard shape and a sentiment.
Thank you so much for looking!
