Christmas Accordion Cards ~ 5 Minute Monday


Today's 5 Minute Monday features the Peaceful Deer stamp set & punch.  This set has been an all time favorite of mine and will still be getting used on my card fronts for many occasions yet to come.

That beautiful background paper is from the Fitting Florets Designer Paper pack. 

Much like the Peaceful Deer Stamp set,  it's completely versatile for many different occasions. 

So here's some quick measurements for today's card.
