It’s Thursday, again! Good job we have another fun card making project from Sandiebella to help distract us from the weeks whizzing by. Click on through for Sandiebella’s fab step by step tutorial.
Concertina Fold Card Tutorial:
Step by Step
Score the 11″x 5.75″, on the 11″ side, at 2.75″, 5.5″ and 8.25″
Using a ruler, measure 1.5″ down on one end of the 5.75″ side and mark with a pencil.
Position the card in your trimmer to that it cuts from the 2.75″ scoreline, diagonally, to the 1.5″ pencil mark. (not the best angle to get a photo)
This is how it should look. Repeat on the second piece of 11″ x 5.75″ card.
Mountain/Valley fold the pieces, ensuring the middle section is folded upwards (mountain)
Repeat for the other piece of card.
Adhere one piece of card ot the 5.5″ wide x 5.75″ tall piece of card, ensuring the fold is in the middle.
Repeat for the other side,
To make the designer paper layers, cut the paper at 2 3/8″ and position it onto the section you are cutting for. DO NOT ADHERE.
Using a pencil, mark the paper on each side, about 1/8″ down from the top of the card, to get the angle you need to cut at.
Repeat for any sections you are going to cover.
Adhere all of the paper down.
Stamp the image and colour using your preferred medium.
Cut out, using a circle die.
Cut a scalloped circle, slightly larger than the image circle.
Adhere the image to the scalloped circle.
To hold the card in place, I applied a small strip of double sided tape to the centre of the front panels. This is not compulsory, I just found it held the card closed and made positioning the image easier.
Adhere the image to the centre.
Embellish as desired. I added some snowflakes and icicles.
