The Fall Release dies are in stock! They're shipping now to independent craft stores worldwide.
Today I wanted to use a few of the new dies for an Autumn-themed Gift Card Accordion.
The Gift Card Accordion measures 5.25" wide by 4" tall when folded up, meaning it is just under an A2 size for easy mailing. The notches are cut automatically into the pages to hold a standard size gift card. The die set also comes with the script "a gift for you" die.
My card is a simple 2-page design using the companion Flourish Gift Frame set for the swirly frames and the rectangle die to cover page 1 perfectly.
I also used the new Prop 7 Woven Basket die. This little cutie is so easy to assemble and makes a surprisingly realistic-looking woven basket in just 3 pieces. I filled the basket with the leaves from the All Seasons Tree die and also used branches of the tree as decoration for the card. The "a gift for you" die was cut from Ruby Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz using the metal adaptor plate.
The instructions for assembling the woven basket are printed on the packaging. It's a very simple assembly as follows:

The patterned paper I used was a BoBunny line from my stash. Any fall-themed patterned paper would work. You will find these dies in independent craft stores very soon. You can also order from the Elizabeth Craft Designs website.
