Hiya sistahs, happy Thursday with Sandiebella !
Today Sandiebella teaches us how to make an Accordion Fold Christmas Card
White card, navy card
Designer paper (used – Echo Park I Love Winter: Warm Vibes)
Scoring board, bone folder
Die cuts for embellishment
Stamp The Gnome and the Christmas Tree
on a 3.5″ x 3-7/8″ piece of blending card. Stamp the sentiment underneath the image then colour using your preferred medium.
For the card base, cut one piece of card measuring 5.75″ x 11.5″
Mountain fold the first score line, then valley/mountain/valley fold the remaining three score lines. Crease well with a bone folder.
For the layers, cut:
(4x) 1-5/8″ x 5-5/8″
(1x) 4-3/8″ x 5-5/8″
(4x) 1.5″ x 5.5″
(1x) 4.25″ x 5.5″
(1x) 3-7/8″ x 3-7/8″ (greeting panel)
Adhere all the paper layers to the navy card layers and then adhere to the card base.
For the small card base, cut:
(1x) 4.25″ x 8″
(2x) 4-1/8″ x 3-7/8″
(2x) 4″ x 3.75″
Score the navy card piece at 4″ and fold in half.
Adhere the paper layers to the white card pieces and then adhere to the outside of the navy card.
Position the small card layer so that the folded sections are inside it.
Apply adhesive to approx 1.25″ on the inside end of the smaller card and adhere to front 1.75″ section. Open up the card and adhere the other side of the smaller card to the last 1.75″ section.
The two ‘mountains’ should be in the smaller card.
Open up the card and decorate the inside as desired.
Using foam tape, adhere the image to the front of the card.
Adhere the greeting panel on the inside back, positioning it up so that it can’t be seen when the card is closed. Add some flat elements.
Finally, add some enamel dots either side of the sentiment.
